The attacking midfielder was a key figure in West Ham’s 3-2 comeback win against 10-man Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The 28-year-old France international scored the winner in the final minute and also created four chances.
Gold has suggested on Twitter that Payet bagging the winner against Everton is an act of revenge.
