Highlights: Manchester Utd 1-1 West Ham

Sakho, who has been dogged by injuries since joining West Ham from Metz in 2014, led the line on his own against United and became the first Hammers striker to score this season. 

It was also his first strike since May 10, coincidentally against United, in West Ham's 3-2 victory in the final ever match to be played at the Boleyn Ground.
