Dimitri Payet's highlight reel from the 2016/17 Premier League season will be dominated by wonderful pieces of skill at this rate.

Goals have proved hard to come by for the Frenchman thus far, but the one goal he has scored, against Middlesbrough last month, came after some sensational footwork.

Payet picked up possession down the left-hand side before dribbling past no less than four defenders and squeezing his shot into the bottom-left corner.

It was a remarkable individual effort that sent social media into absolute meltdown.

He was at it again during Saturday evening's game against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, producing a moment of brilliance in the first half.

In the video below, Payet controls the ball, nutmegs Victor Wanyama under pressure from Mousa Dembele and then pirouette's past Harry Winks, winning a free-kick.

It's one thing to nutmeg someone under such pressure, but to get back up from a challenge and then pirouette past another player is just ridiculous.

Payet will only hope his efforts pay dividends against Tottenham after what has been a difficult start to the season for West Ham.

Heading into the game, Slaven Bilic's side were 16th in the Premier League on 11 points and just above the relegation zone.

They entered the half-time break in north London 1-0 up, courtesy of Michail Antonio's header.
