Dimitri Payet has been an absolute sensation this season. The Frenchman was snapped up from Marseille for a little over £10m last summer by West Ham, and initially many were sceptical about his quality. Alas, if it weren’t for the Leicester fairy-tale, we’d be backing the 29-year-old for the PFA Player of the Year award ahead of the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, with his form having been electric for an impressive Hammers outfit.
A top four push may have been ended – well, it’ll be tough now – with a 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, but that doesn’t mean that Irons supporters won’t have anything to cheer between now and game 38, especially with Payet banging in the goals and laying on the assists.
The France international was once again up to his old tricks last weekend as he curled in a fantastic free-kick at against the Eagles (below), taking his tally to SIX in his last eight – as well as another sumptuous set-piece for France!
His contribution has been telling for the West Ham cause, with the Irons having netted two or more goals in three of their last five and in 18 of their 31 league matches, leaving them a staggering FOURTH behind only Celtic, Rangers and Arsenal in the ‘Score Twice, Half Price’ table…
This is great news if you like pizza. ‘Why?’ we hear you cry… well, Papa John’s are giving 50% off orders if the team you back nets two or more in any league game this season. So, choosing West Ham with Payet firing in the final third seems like a no-brainer. It’s simple, too, as all you have to do is click here, sign up for FREE and follow the instructions.
