London: Diafra Sakho scored his fifth goal in as many games as West Ham climbed into the top half of the Premier League with a convincing 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

Nedum Onuoha's own-goal gave the Hammers an early lead at Upton Park before Sakho headed home a second shortly before the hour.

QPR heads into the international break bottom of the table with just four points from its first seven games.

West Ham's victory could have been more emphatic had the referee not spared the blushes of QPR goalkeeper Rob Green, whose bizarre free kick allowed Enner Valencia to slot home in the second half before his effort was disallowed.
