Watch: The Wicked Dip On Dimitri Payet's Free-Kick As Seen From Behind The Goal
By Gavan Casey

Dimitri Payet continued to take the piss out of both the Premier League and physics with another stunning free-kick to give West Ham a 2-1 lead over Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

The 29-year-old French international now has six goals and five assists in his last seven appearances for the Hammers. In fact, according to the folks at Opta, Payet has been involved in 23 West Ham goals this season - 13 more than any of his teammates.

His spectacular free-kicks (a now-famous FA Cup strike at Old Trafford springs to mind, along with this absolute pearler on France duty) have been one of the season's highlights, and Payet will surely surpass Thierry Henry's record of 14 free-kicks in the coming seasons.

It takes a serious talent to send the keeper the wrong way from 25 yards, but as seen in freelance journalist Ben Wilson's footage (originally taken by his brother), that's exactly what Payet did this afternoon. Grab a bag of Doritos for all that dip.
