Payet's Rabona Assist Might Already Be the Play of the Month

Yes, the month is young, but come back to me in October, and tell me that this didn't take the cake for September.

Did that just happen?!? It doesn't get much better than this assist from Payet! #PLonNBChttps://t.co/hI3rpcQOCL

My good, dear god. West Ham doesn't always get top billing for Premier League TV scheduling. But maybe it should—all because of one man, nay, myth: Dimitri Payet. Just take a look at the skill with which Payet dices up this Watford defender, sawing him back and forth with some magical footwork (he's not just a set piece man, people). The dekes, the flick behind for a redirection as he nears the end line. Oh, and the motherfucking rabona assist. What brazen mastery from the West Ham attacking midfielder. Just an absolute beauty. And yes, the month is young, but come back to me in October, and tell me that this didn't take the cake for September.
