West Ham hero Dimitri Payet included in first FIFA 16 Team of the Week


Dimitri Payet's form has been recognised this week.

EA Sports have confirmed on their official website that West Ham United star Dimitri Payet has been included in the first FIFA 16 Team of the Week.

The release of FIFA 16 is just a week away now, and football fans all over the world are buzzing with excitement over the latest instalment of EA's flagship title.

Ahead of the release of the game, EA have already released their first Team of the Week, interlinked with the Ultimate Team game mode - and West Ham fans will certainly be interested.

The tweet below from EA shows their first Team of the Week - and whilst familiar names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Steven Naismith and Luuk de Jong are in the side, much of the attention will go to Dimitri Payet following his virtuoso display against Newcastle.


The French playmaker, 28, joined the Hammers from Marseille over the summer, and was clearly the club's biggest signing under new manager Slaven Bilic.

Payet has become an instant crowd favourite at Upton Park, and his two goals against Newcastle on Monday handed his side a 2-0 victory.

Payet's superb performance has been rewarded with a place in EA Sports' Team of the Week, meaning Hammers fans are able to land an improved version of the player once FIFA 16 hits the shelves next week.
