West Ham United FC striker Diafra Sakho is looking forward to scoring goals for the English Premier League (EPL) side following his return from his long-term injury.

The 27-year-old recently made a substitute appearance during the Hammers' league encounter with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in London.

This was his first appearance for the club since he sustained a back injury last November and he missed half of the current 2016/17 campaign.

“I think about the fans a lot and I hope they still love me," Sakho told club's official website.

“They had their song ‘He scores when he wants!’ about me and I hope they have put that in their pockets and when I come back," he said.

"I can score one, two or three goals and they can bring that song out again!

“I have never played in this new London Stadium, so it will be my first time," the Senegalese forward continued.

"So, I am happy about that and I hope I score and can enjoy a celebration with the fans.”

Sakho has made three league appearances for the Hammers this season - scoring once which was against Manchester United last November.
