West Ham v Aston Villa tips – back Sakho to keep scoring
The Hammers are flying and Diafra Sakho will be back in the starting line-up against the Villans
November 7th, 2014
West Ham United were tipped by many to struggle this season with their brand of supposed negative football under Sam Allardyce although they are currently second behind Southampton in the surprise package stakes.
Allardyce has made some astute signings and none more so than Diafra Sakho who missed last weekend’s 2-2 draw at the Britannia Stadium with a shoulder injury but will be back to continue his scoring run on Saturday.
The Senegal star has scored in each of his last seven games and can be backed at 7/5 with bet365 to find the net at any stage of this encounter, with Aston Villa in a sorry state after a bright start to the campaign.
Ten points from four matches indicated that the Midlands side were feeling the benefits of Roy Keane being installed as assistant manager, although it is now six straight defeats and a gloomy outlook approaching the winger months.
Christian Benteke was red carded on Sunday which means a lack of firepower in attack and it’s hard to quibble with the 3/4 about West Ham winning the match and continuing their merry run this term.
The visitors have scored just once in the last six, with Coral offering a tempting 19/10 about West Ham winning to nil and they look to be in scintillating form considering that Stewart Downing has been producing the sort of performances that have earned him an England recall.
West Ham to win @ 3/4 with bet365
West Ham to win to nil @ 19/10 with Coral
Diafra Sakho to score @ 7/5 with bet365
