Ozil vs Payet - The Guardian
From The Guardian - ten things to watch for this weekend - Who has had a bigger impact this season – Özil or Payet?

It will be an utter travesty if anybody other than a Leicester City player is awarded the PFA Player of the Year award later this month. Whilst Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy are correctly the favourites, Arsenal’s Mesut Özil and West Ham’s Dimitri Payet are both rated as 25-1 to make a late run into the box. Who of these two has had a bigger impact this season? Özil has 18 league assists – seven more than anybody else – but is guilty of playing in a team that really should have done/be doing better. Payet, the form player in a team exceeding expectations, has forced himself into the France squad through a mixture of dead-ball wizardry, silky skills and an unerring end product. The German and the Frenchman will go head-to-head on Saturday, knowing that defeat for their respective teams will probably spell the end of either Arsenal’s title hopes or West Ham’s bid for a top-four spot. Individual honours matter little when placed next to these ambitions but this will be an interesting subplot in what should be a fascinating match. Neither team can afford to draw. Both need their creator-in-chief to again conjure up something special. MB

Gutted we missed out on Kante, he has been solid.

Ozil is obviously a great player but he isn't in the same league as Payet when it comes to just the pure enjoyment of watching football. Players like Payet are why we all fall in love with the game!

Lately Payet hasn't been dominating games like he was before his injury. Since then he's just been scoring goals and creating chances a few times per game but little else - which is all Ozil has ever done, even at his best. So it's Payet for me, no question.

Kante is actually the player who's had the biggest impact in the league. Leicester would have dropped like a stone when the goals dried up if it wasn't for him.
