West Ham have made an excellent start to the season and currently sit in sixth place, having picked up impressive away wins at Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Key to that success has been the creative midfield contributing with goals and excellent assists, such as Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini.
The form of Diafra Sakho has been consistent with Zarate and Carroll chipping in up front, but ultimately Zarate is inconsistent and the other two are injury prone.
West Ham’s top scorers are their midfielders and the injury to Payet may add to their goalscoring woes.
Goals have dried up recently for the Hammers since the injury of Payet and they have failed to win in their last three games, including a 4-1 defeat to rivals Tottenham.
So perhaps what West Ham need is an out and out goalscorer up front to take the burden off the midfielders, and take advantage of the wealth of service they get from the midfield.
