Payet relishing partnership with Sakho

Dimitri Payet is relishing his partnership with Diafra Sakho in the West Ham United attack and hopes he can provide a lot more goals for the Senegal international.

Payet has wasted no time settling into his new surroundings at the Boleyn Ground and was voted man of the match once again during the 2-2 draw against Norwich on Saturday.

The France international was among the top providers in Europe last season and created more chances than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

Payet has already set up three assists this season and played a crucial role in the Hammers first goal on Saturday when he showed his quality down the right hand side and played the perfect cross in for Sakho who converted from close-range.

The Hammers are the joint-top goalscorers in the Premier League and it is no surprise that the arrival of Payet has contributed towards the Club's impressive start to the campaign.

Slaven Bilic's side now head to Sunderland on Saturday and Payet hopes that he can maintain his superb run of form and help set up more goals for the West Ham forwards.

Payet said: “I found myself in a good position and I saw Diafra who was calling for the ball in the middle, I managed to picked him out and he was able to score. It was very good.

“I am very happy with my start here and I’m working hard to ensure it continues.

“We were behind twice in the game, we managed to get back to 1-1, then to 2-2 in the final seconds, so we'll settle for the point.

“A draw at home is never good, but given the way the match panned out we'll take it. It was the start of the game that cost us the two points on Saturday.

“For sure it was difficult [after they scored] as there wasn't much time left, but afterwards we pushed right until the end and we were rewarded for it.”
