Dimitri Payet is a great player, says West Ham teammate Victor Moses

Payet Skill

The Frenchman was influential in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Norwich City.

West Ham United star Dimitri Payet is a great player, teammate Victor Moses has told the club’s official website.

The midfielder has been the star of the Hammers' campaign so far; with a series of impressive displays making a mockery of the £10million they paid Marseille for his services.

He was at his best once again on Saturday afternoon, as he scored one and set up another to help his side grab a 2-2 draw away at Norwich City.

And Moses has praised the Frenchman; saying is a great player with a huge amount of talent.

“Dimitri Payet is a great player,” he told whufc.com.

“We all know he has a huge amount of talent. The first goal was a little similar to the one he scored against Newcastle. This time the keeper saved it and he’s put it in the back of the net.

“It was a good move from me and Dimi as well, and I’m very happy that he was on the score sheet."

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic will now be hoping that Payet can continue his fine form and push his side into one of the European places this season.

They are currently seventh in the table after Saturday’s draw, level on points with Southampton in sixth and just a point away from Manchester United in fifth.

That means a place in Europe is very much there for the taking, and Payet is sure to be influential in them doing so in the remaining 12 games of this Premier League season.
