“We’ve got Payet, Dimitri Payet. I just don’t think you understand. He’s Super Slavs man, he’s better than Zidane.  We’ve got Dimtri Payet!”

VIDEO: West Ham's version

West Ham started it with the above song before Arsenal got involved:

“We’ve got Ozil. Mesut Ozil. I just don’t think you understand. He’s Arsene Wenger’s man. He’s better than Zidane. We’ve got Mesut Ozil.”

A good effort but lacking any real originality from West Ham’s creation.

But then Spurs have entered the game - and we think they are winning it with this brilliant version, which includes a cheeky dig at Ozil.

"We've got Alli, Dele Alli. I just don't think you understand. He only cost 5 mill. He's better than Ozil. We've got Dele Alli."

Take a bow Spurs fans.

Three brilliant players

One thing is for sure, all three players deserve songs after the campaign they’ve had.

Payet has scored 12 goals for the Hammers since signing from Marseille last summer for around £11 million.

His performances have been so impressive that he has already signed a new contract at Upton Park as Slaven Bilic’s men attempt to stave off the interest of European giants at the end of the season.

Payet could still help West Ham incredibly achieve a top four finish with his side just three points behind Manchester City in fourth.

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil has impressed for Arsenal this campaign and is still on course to break the Premier League record for assists. The German has laid on 18 goals and is two away from the record set by club legend Thierry Henry.

However, his performances appear to be in vain as the Gunners look set to end the campaign trophy-less. They are 11 points behind Leicester - although they do have a game in hand.

Joining Payet and Ozil in the ‘impressive season’ category is Tottenham’s Dele Alli. The 19-year-old has been instrumental in Spurs’ unlikely title challenge and looks certain to named in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad.
