Payet/Lanzini compared to world superstars

Pedro Obiang has made a direct comparison between Dimitri Payet to Angel Di Maria and Manuel Lanzini to Andres Iniesta.

The former Sampdoria man believes the two playmanuel-lanzini-west-ham-liverpool_3343611makers have been key to the east London club’s impressive start to the season.

He reckons the team’s ¬†brilliant¬†attacking play is down to the pair of them but is surprised at the outstanding start to the season.

Obiang told Spanish sports tabloid Marca: “Yes, I’m surprised (at the start of the season). That means that we are good fighters. Whenever we get ahead, we win.

“People have highlighted Payet. He is a superstar, he creates chances and finishes them. He is a kind of Di Maria.

“And we must also review Lanzini. I would liken him to Iniesta. he seems fragile, but he will challenge anybody.”

  1. Payet is more like Iniesta and on par ,Lanzini is better then Di Maria and will prove that over the next few years,
    As for Kouyate he is better than Ya Ya and Vierra and will be a great Hammer and will become a Legend,
    We are blessed at the moment with future stars we now have to prove we are a big enough club to keep them
