Payet started the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Anfield and played for the entire 90 minutes, as it ended in a goalless draw.
The France international attacking midfielder failed to live up to expectations and did not have a great game.
It was not entirely the 28-year-old’s fault, though, as he was played out on the wing rather than through the middle where he is the most effective.
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Anfield, hosts Liverpool had 51% of the possession, took 18 shots of which six were on target, and earned six corners.
Slaven Bilic’s visiting team had 49% of the possession, took seven shots of which only one was on target, and earned two corners.
West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on the performance of Payet against Liverpool.

This Payet on the wing never works. That was clear at Newcastle. I hope that's clear now and we don't see it again. Replay at home! COYI— West Ham South West (@WHUSouthWest) January 31, 2016
