Payet is one of those players who can change a game with a moment of quality. He need not be present and influential for 90 minutes – he’ll have his say eventually.
His ability to get the ball up and down from such short distances is truly unique and separates him from may of his free-kick-taking counterparts.
Payet has to rank among the best free-kick takers on the planet, with that being a dangerous tool in Marseille’s arsenal, one which was effective this evening.
