Pedro Obiang's deflected strike, coupled with Andre Ayew's close range effort ensured the East Londoners maximum points, much to the delight of the Hammers chief: "It is the ideal birthday present, he said after the match".

"But football is an offensive game as well and we were not good enough, not fearless enough".

West Ham United manager, Slaven Bilic, is prepared to offer Senegal worldwide, Diafra Sakho, another chance to resurrect his career if the striker could move on from his failed transfer move to French side, Stade Rennes.
