Moyes unimpressed by shot-shy West Ham team

A general view of St James Park during the Barclays Premier League match between Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur at St James Park

Arsenal have bigger fish to fry and the evidence was provided by Arsène Wenger's decision to give the night off to every member of his starting lineup from Saturday's Premier League win over Newcastle United.

After seeing a summer move to Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais collapse on deadline day, Sakho reached an agreement with West Ham over bonuses he would receive this season.

WEST HAM forward Diafra Sakho was involved in a freakish row with David Moyes before the Arsenal Carabao Cup clash about his £50,000 bonus.

Used 14 times as a sub in the Premier League this season, the Senegal global made a decision to ask Moyes about his lack of playing time when arriving at the Emirates Stadium - a match he was expected to start.

However, with the appearance money not including cup competitions, Sakho threatened to boycott the match completely.

However a club spokesman denied this was the case, telling the Mail that "allegations of a row ahead of the Arsenal game and team selection being dictated by a player's contract, are categorically untrue".

An Aaron Cresswell free kick midway through the second half was about as close as West Ham came to finding an equaliser while Arsenal could have had a penalty when Welbeck was fouled by Joe Hart right on the edge of the area.
