Payet injured, may miss 3 months

Hammers star player is facing a spell on the side lines. For the club it puts a barrier on their European plans. For a fantasy player its much more serious.

News has broke today that West Ham United's sensational early season playmaker Dimitri Payet has suffered an ankle injury and may miss the next 3 months!!!

Payet was injured in a challenge by James Mccarthy in the 1-1 draw with Everton at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon.

After his summer move to the Hammersv the frenchman had been a star this season.  5 goals and 3 assist in 12 games is good for any midfield player in any season.  On debut though it is extremely impressive, as was his all round game to go with the glamour stats.

At 5m in Fantrax he was a season keeper and replacing him will be a problem.  At the same price bracket we have options though.

Son Heung-Min 5,083

Emre Can 4,862

Victor Moses 4,208

Adam Johnson 4,004

Stephane Sessegnon 2,981

Jesse Lingard 2,006

And when fit

Kevin Mirallas 4,827

Jordan Henderson 4,887

Son will start the next spurs game with Erik Lamela suspended.  Moses catches the eye with his fantasy returns last season.  AJ is a good although inconsistent scorer.  Sessegnon caught Santi's eye over the weekend and of course Lingard is the flavour of the moment.

For Payet owners like me it's a sad day my friends, a sad sad day.  Who do you think is the best bet to replace him in your lineups?
