Payet started the Premier League game at St. James’ Park and played for the entire 90 minutes.
The France international has been one of the best players in the league so far this season and has been in superb form.
Much was expected of the 2015 summer signing from Marseille, but the Frenchman struggled to make a huge impact against the Magpies.
The 28-year-old attacking midfielder failed to take a single shot, had a pass accuracy of 71%, created one chance, put in eight crosses, attempted five dribbles, made one interception, and one block.
The London outfit lost the encounter 2-1 and are now sixth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on the performance of Payet against Newcastle.

If u think Noble should be dropped then you might aswell drop Payet, Obiang etc, you can't judge him on one bad game, he's done well overall— Sam (@whu_sam) January 16, 2016
What a woeful performance!! To a man, they were all useless; even Payet. We looked so slow and sluggish— Matthew (@whu_hearney) January 16, 2016
