Arnie's goals kept us in the Premier League, says team mate

Cheik Kouyate has paid tribute to fellow Hammer Marko Arnautovic by suggesting that the club could have been relegated by now without his goals.

The Austrian international has scored nine goals for the Hammers since moving to east London from Stoke last summer - and, according to Kouyate, the Hammers might have been relegated without them.

"Marko is an unbelievable guy. He is a great player and he is here for us through good and bad," said the Senegal international. "We could be down without Marko because he has scored so many goals for us, he is on fire.

"I love this guy - he is a great player, he speaks to everyone and makes us laugh. He is a teammate. When everything is not good, he is here and when you are in a bad moment you need guys like Marko. This is why I love this man.

"I think it's possible he can score another six or seven goals before the end of the season. He has good feelings and has everything he needs to do it."

West Ham have scored just 41 goals in the Premier League so far this season - with nearly a quarter of them being scored by Arnautovic.
