West Ham United's Dimitri Payet has been named as one of the top five players in this season's Premier League.

Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith, who also provides the commentary for the latest version of top-selling computer game FIFA has named Payet as one of his most efficient players in the league so far this season.

"He's come over from France and settled in straight away," said Smith. "He's a magician on the ball, scores goals, gets through so much work and never stops thinking.

"He's been the talisman for West Ham and an inspiration. The fans down at Upton Park love him - and you can see why."

The other four players named by Smith are Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, Crystal Palace's James McArthur and Manchester City's Spanish international David Silva.
