Dimitri Payet promises West Ham United fans he'll come back stronger from injury

Dimitri Payet picked up an injury in West Ham United's match against Everton at the weekend.

Dimitri Payet says that he will work harder then ever to come back, after picking up an injury during West Ham United’s match against Everton at the weekend.

Payet could miss up to three months’ worth of action, according to BBC Sport, after a bad tackle from James McCarthy damaged his ankle.

It is a bitter blow for the Hammers, as Payet has been so influential over the early part of the season, but the former Marseille man has vowed to come back stronger.

“Hey guys just a little feedback just wanted to say that I'm recovering,” he wrote on Instagram. “I'm gonna work even harder and I will be back stronger. See you soon Hammers.”

Payet has made a huge impact at Upton Park since arriving in the summer, and he has emerged as one of the finest talents in the Premier League.

Payet’s combination of power and craft has made him a very exciting player to watch, and he is crucial to West Ham’s attacking style of play.

Without the playmaking midfielder, the Hammers’ squad appears to be considerably weakened, and Slaven Bilic will be eager to have the Frenchman back at his disposal as quickly as possible.

Payet’s brilliant form has helped West Ham to climb into sixth place in the Premier League table, and they will be hoping to continue their positive run of results in his absence.
