​West Ham fans may want to look away. Watching Dimitri Payet curl a free-kick into the top corner with unerring precision may bring back some unwanted memories.

Unfortunately for them, the Frenchman is now doing what he did on a fairly regular basis for West Ham for Marseille.

His superb 48th minute free-kick earned a point for his side, after they had fallen behind in the first half against lowly Dijon FCO.

The visitors' goalkeeper did his best to reach the ball, but was ultimately helpless as Payet's almost perfect effort found the top corner.

The 30-year-old midfielder has wasted little time making an impact since his return to Ligue 1, scoring three goals and providing 2 assists in his nine games so far.


Marseille will need Payet to produce more moments of brilliance if they are to secure a Europa League place this season. They are currently in fifth with seven games of the season remaining.
