The West Ham superstar has been joking around about his team-mates.

West Ham United playmaker Dimitri Payet has joked that Mark Noble doesn't have a house - because he is always so late to leave the dressing room, according to the club's official website.

It's a sign of the skipper's dedication, of course, while Payet has also teased him about having played for '60 years' because he knows everything.

In a light-hearted interview, the Frenchman told the West Ham site of Noble: "I have to say Mark Noble [would be his preferred team-mate for a pub quiz] as he has been playing for 60 years and knows everything!

"Mark Noble [is the last player out of the dressing room]. I don't think he has a house!"

And he also joked about Cheikhou Kouyate and James Collins: "Cheikhou Kouyate. His voice and style - nothing about him would get him through to the next round [of the X Factor] when it comes to singing!

"Ginge. What he wears might be the fashion in Wales but not for me!"

Payet's joking around shows how close the Hammers first team are and they'll need that team cohesion when they travel to Old Trafford in the FA Cup this Sunday afternoon.

Sky Bet don't rate West Ham's chances of winning the FA Cup too highly, with Slaven Bilic's men sixth out of eight in terms of odds (price: 10/1).

West Ham are also priced at 3/1 to beat Manchester United on Sunday, with United rated at 10/11.
