He’s only gone and done it again.
Dimitri Payet scoring a magnificent free-kick that is.
The West Ham ace struck an incredible effort from 20-yards against Crystal Palace to give his side a 2-1 lead at half-time.

‘Only 20-yards!?’ I hear you ask.
But this effort is unique from Payet.
Wayne Hennessy was standing on the far post and it looked as though the West Ham man had plenty of space to hit in over the wall and into the back of the net.
But, no. That’s too easy for Payet.
He decided to aim for the top corner where the Palace goalkeeper was standing - and he found it with superb precision.
Of course, it’s not Payet’s first incredible free-kick in recent weeks.
He beat Manchester United’s David de Gea from 35-yards at Old Trafford with a pearler and followed that up with a carbon-copy on his second appearance for France against Russia.
Payet is having an incredible season at Upton Park since signing from Marseille last summer.
The 29-year-old has already managed 12 goals for the Hammers and his performances have seen the club offer him a new five-and-a-half contract in February, despite him signing a five-year deal in June.
If he continues his scintillating form, West Ham may struggle to keep hold of him at the end of the season - no matter how many years he has remaining on his contract.
One thing is for sure, they are bound to receive a lot more than the £11.25 million they paid for him less than 12 months ago.
