Dimitri Payet reacts on Twitter to Manuel Lanzini's return to training

Payet Skill

The West Ham star is delighted to see the 23-year-old back in action.

Dimitri Payet has missed Manuel Lanzini.

Indeed, the West Ham United playmaker has been out injured in recent weeks but is now back in training with the east London side - ahead of this weekend's FA Cup action.

And no one is more delighted by the news than Frenchman Payet:

Lanzini's creativity is perfect for the business end of the season. The Hammers will need the Argentine to unlock teams in the FA Cup and Premier League and Lanzini brings the best out of others - especially Payet.

West Ham travel to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup this weekend, before a reunion with former boss Sam Allardyce in the Premier League.

After facing Sunderland, West Ham taken on Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Watford. It's far from the easiest run of fixtures.

But, with the 'Jewel' back alongside Payet, the Hammers should be ready for the tests ahead (providing he returns to actual match action soon enough).
