Name: Dimitri Payet
Highly regarded as the Premier League’s best signing of the season – Dimitri Payet is in pole position to pick up West Ham United’s Player of the Season award after hitting the ground running at Upton Park this term.
The 28-year-old, who is in contention to be included in France’s squad to compete at this summer’s Euro 2016 in his homeland, has scored a remarkable 11 goals and provided 10 assists in just 29 appearances in all competitions for Slaven Bilic’s side.
Name: Aaron Cresswell
Arguably one of the Premier League’s most underrated defenders, Aaron Cresswell never fails to impress for the Hammers with his incredible consistency of top notch performances for the Londoners.
The 26-year-old; who cost the club a reported £3.75m from Ipswich Town back in July 2014, in what is perceived now as an absolute bargain, has starred in all but one of West Ham’s 29 league games this campaign, teeing up three goals and finding the back of the net against Aston Villa to earn his side a 1-1 draw.
Name: Mark Noble
Many football fans; not just Hammers supporters, are crying out for the midfield maestro to be handed an England call-up ahead of this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.
The 28-year-old, who is a former England Under-21 international, is undoubtedly enjoying his best season at Upton Park this term, scoring three times and providing four assists in the league.
But it is Noble’s unsung work in the centre of the park; string passes together, dominating the midfield and instrumenting goalscoring opportunities for West Ham’s attacking ranks that have been overlooked for far too long.
