Slaven Bilic believes Dimitri Payet freekick’s ability is as good as former Manchester United player, David Beckham.
Payet has scored five freekicks for West Ham and scored one on international duty with France.
And Bilic said the Frenchman’s ability from set-pieces has given his side a fear factor.
“You can’t say that anyone was better than Beckham than taking free-kicks,” he said.
“But then again, you can say the same thing about Dimitri this season. In the space of 10 minutes we can name five or six great ones.
“The last one against Crystal Palace was unbelievable. Then for France. Old Trafford. Blackburn and Bournemouth. It all happened in a couple of months. The tempo he is putting them in is amazing.
“Of course teams will be worried about conceding free-kicks.”
