West Ham United have won all six games that Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca has started so far this season.

The Italian has made a fairly slow start to life at the London Stadium, but his importance to the Hammers is already clear to see.

In fairness to Scamacca, he has bagged four goals in 10 games as well (Transfermarkt) – not a bad return considering the fact that he has come in from a foreign country.

The 23-year-old got off the mark in the Premier League yesterday against Wolves with a fabulous goal.

David Moyes raved about the Italian after the match against Wolves. And if Moyes offers praise, you know it’s always been well earned.

The challenge for him now will be to keep scoring regularly. He’s certainly capable of doing just that, and his display yesterday showcased everything he has to offer.

West Ham win when Gianluca Scamacca starts

The Italian has started six games for West Ham so far this season – four in the Europa Conference League and two in the Premier League against Aston Villa and Wolves respectively.

Amazingly, the Hammers have won all six of those games.

Scamacca, who earns £90k-a-week at the London Stadium (Spotrac), has incredible quality and he will undoubtedly go on to be a huge hit with West Ham.

The Italian is a completely different animal to Michail Antonio.

He is technically superior and is by far and away a better finisher than the 32-year-old.

The ex-Sassuolo ace is obviously still getting up to speed with the Premier League, but we think that Moyes needs to play him week in, week out now, in order for him to become accustomed to the English game.

Gianluca Scamacca has absolutely everything needed to be a West Ham United legend.

And hopefully his brilliant goal against Wolves yesterday will really give him the confidence that he needs to kick on now.

One thing’s for sure, if David Moyes wants to win games, he needs to start Scamacca every single time!
