HIS DEBUT PREMIER League season is going pretty well.

From 11 top-flight appearances, Dimitri Payet has scored five times and added a further three assists since his switch to West Ham from Marseille.

More than that, the 28-year-old is thrilling the Hammers fans with his tricks, flicks and general creative ways.

And with his side currently in sixth-place in the table, his performances have had a profound impact.

And at training earlier today, Payet conjured some more pieces of magic.

The first was a neat dribble that bamboozled a couple of his team-mates before goalkeeper Adrian could do little to stop the cheeky finish.


But he saved the best for last.

Controlling a cross from the right side on his chest, his next touch was a thumping volley that arrowed straight inside the near post.
