2. Dimitri Payet
Dimitri Payet’s pre-mature departure from West Ham United in the winter of 2016/17 means the Frenchman is unlikely to win any popularity contests in east London. But no one can deny the fact that when he was in the mood, the former Marseille attacking midfielder was a mercurial match-winner who lit up the final season at the Boleyn Ground with a series of spectacular performances and goals. He also won the Hammer of the Year in 2016.

Noble is an inspirational leader, consistent central midfielder and ultra-reliable penalty taker. Born in Canning Town, he’s a lifelong supporterof West Ham. He has been the captain of the side since 2015 and has been the one constant through a decade of change in east London.
Noble is still going strong at the age of 32 as his Hammers career enters a third decade. He was twice the winner of the Hammer of the Year (2012, 2014).
