​FIFA 17 rate West Ham's Payet as Premier League best free kick taker

West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has been named as the Premier League's best free-kick taker ahead of the release of FIFA 17.

The France international may be top in regards to English football but he is only fourth on the overall list in the popular video game.

New York City midfielder Andrea Pirlo leads the way while Turkey international Hakan Calhanoglu is second with Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic in third.

However, Barcelona star Lionel Messi has had to make do with sixth.
