West Ham decided to troll Arsenal after Dimitri Payet piped Mesut Ozil to win the Player of the Year award.
The news came amid a difficult fortnight for the Gunners which saw them lose at home to Barcelona and Manchester United as well as a shock midweek loss at the hands of Swansea City.
West Ham posted the following tweet following Payet’s away which included the following statement, “So it’s official, Dimitri Payet is better than Mesut Ozil #LFA16.”

Ozil put in a disappointing performance against his clubs rivals. The former Real Madrid man received a rating of 6.2 from WhoScored for his role in his sides draw. Ozil failed to deliver any key passes nor did create any chances for his side.
The Germany international has created a total of chances this season (115) and has 18 assists to his name. Ozil is just two assists off matching the Premier League record of 20 set by Thierry Henry.
