As we know, Dimitri Payet doesn’t really trouble himself with run-of-the-mill goals, instead preferring to ply us with a steady stream of high-calibre ‘wonderbuts’.
Marseille went steam-rollering over Guingamp in Ligue 1 on Saturday, waltzing to a 4-0 victory at the Velodrome.
All four goals came in the second half, though Payet’s (on ’73) was the pick of the bunch – the former West Ham man clipping a truly magnifique side-footed volley in from about 25 yards out…
Seeing Payet happy, settled and in form is a wondrous thing. Supreme technique, spontaneous style and match-winning creativity.
As a result of their comprehensive win, Marseille remain joint-third in Ligue 1, five points behind leaders PSG with 10 games played.
Guingamp, conversely, remain rock bottom of the table without a single point to their name.
