Dimitri Payet's heroics for West Ham United this season certainly haven't gone unnoticed. The technically gifted playmaker has comfortably been one of the standout players in the Premier League and stands a great chance of securing this season's PFA Player of the Year award. 

A couple of players from Leicester City may well beg to differ, but Payet is certainly a contender to secure the prestigious prize. 

It's safe to say that he has quickly emerged as the Premier League's most deadliest star from the dead-ball situation.

Recent free-kicks against Manchester United and Crystal Palace have been rather spectacular as the Hammers go in search of securing a place in the top four of the Premier League and FA Cup silverware this season. In all honesty, it has been a truly tremendous campaign for all involved at Upton Park. 

And as the season approaches its final stages, it appears that Payet isn't slowing down. As you can see in the video below, he's certainly been producing the goods in training. 

Brilliant Payet 

What can't Payet do? Well, he can strike a volley with ridiculous power and accuracy...

Top four finish 

But can Payet and the Hammers really achieve a top four finish this season? Last weekend's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace was a setback, of course, but Slaven Bilic's side appear to be the real deal. 

This weekend represents yet another huge one for the club as they play host to Arsenal and Bilic has insisted that his side will do everything they can to stay in the race for a European spot. 

"We have a very tough week coming up, but we are approaching the games one by one. We don't put either competition in front," he told reporters, as per 

"This season is approaching its end and it's very important, as we're fighting for a place in Europe.

"We are thinking only about the game against Arsenal. Make no mistake, we'll do everything to win the game and stay in the race [for the top four].

"Our form and position in the table makes us quite confident against Arsenal. It's nice that we have already beaten them 2-0 this season."
