Photos capture brilliance of Dimitri Payet's free-kick, West Ham supporters go wild

Payet Skill

West Ham drew 1-1 away at Manchester United in the FA Cup on Sunday.

West Ham United face an FA Cup replay against Manchester United after a 1-1 draw between the two sides at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Hammers will have been disappointed not to win the game, but were treated to a superb goal, as Dimitri Payet bent a 30-yard free kick over the wall and in off the post in the 68th minute.

However, Manchester United hit back late on, with Anthony Martial volleying home with just seven minutes to play, setting up a replay at Upton Park to determine who will join Crystal Palace, Everton and Watford in the semi-finals of the competition.

Slaven Bilic's men are still in with a shout of winning the FA Cup, and will be hoping to create a magical night in the final ever FA Cup tie at Upton Park.

If they are to beat Louis van Gaal's men, you can guarantee that Dimitri Payet will be vital to West Ham's chances after yet another moment of magic on Sunday.

The French playmaker, 28, has been simply sensational since joining West Ham from Marseille last summer, and has hit the headlines yet again having scored a perfect free-kick against United at Old Trafford.

Payet stepped up from 30 yards out, whipped the ball over the United wall and arced the ball past David de Gea and into the net via the post.

It was yet another demonstration of Payet's genius, and the photos below captured the brilliance of the goal, from the moment he struck the ball to West Ham's fans going wild, and Payet's own celebration of a truly memorable FA Cup goal.

Here are some of the best photos from Payet's wonderstrike against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon...

Was that a goal of the season contender from Payet?
