Sakho struck in victory over Swansea City last night.
"You cannot say that of many foreign imports. Come to that, you cannot say it of many players in general. In fact, only one other person - step forward Micky Quinn - has managed to notch in his first six Premier League starts.
"The goals, what is more, have satisfyingly come in a variety of ways. Some through sheer pace, some through quick reactions and some from a head that does not shy away from a ball flying into a crowded penalty box. That has got to please Allardyce, in charge of a team with two raiding full-backs entrusted with swinging in enticing crosses."
