Are Crystal Palace closing in on a Sakho, Sakho, Sako starting XI?
Commentators will certainly have to do their homework.
If recent transfer rumours are to be believed, Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace team could well have a core of Sakho, Sakho and Sako running through the team.
Currently at the club are centre-back Mamadou Sakho…
… as well as midfielder Bakary Sako, who has scored two Premier League goals so far this season.

"That is something alone that is very positive. He has improved in terms of understanding what we want from him as a front player." pic.twitter.com/Rk1bDHk6bP
And if rumours are to be believed, it’s possible West Ham’s Diafra Sakho could be the latest addition to the squad.

That would be Sakho, Sakho and Sako then, in defence, midfield and attack.
Crystal Palace to have Sakho, Sakho and Sako on the books, which sounds like the name of the LMA's preferred law firm. https://t.co/f0XuDHfajU— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) January 10, 2018
It does have a ring to it.
Sakho, Sako & Sakho. Sounds like a firm of Accountants.— Barbara Poole ⚽🦅 (@Barbara4003) January 10, 2018
Remember when we had Hill, Hills, Hall and Halls? Those were the days.
And while it might prove difficult for commentators, it could be the source of some timeless commentary.
Just imagine the scenes - Sakho passes it out to Sako. Who runs to the byline, Sakho gets his head onto it AND IT'S A GOAL.— Ryan West (@RyanBoiWestBoi) January 10, 2018
I want a third Sakho/Sako!
Sakho, Sakho and Sako potentially on our books by February...— HLTCO (@HLTCO) January 10, 2018
Wonderful stuff. https://t.co/8bsHU4FdBy
And if that goes well, how about FC Cologne forward Yuya Osako in the summer?
