Better than Payet! Can this West Ham star sneak into POTY shortlist?

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Marko Arnautovic has been more influential at West Ham since David Moyes' appointment than Dimitri Payet was in 2015/16, analysis from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com shows. 
 
Even at the peak of his powers, Dimitri Payet's Premier League stats of 2015/16 are no match for Marko Arnautovic's form since David Moyes took over at West Ham in November. 
 

 
Since Moyes' first game as Hammers' manager, our stats show Arnautovic has not only topped Payet for dribbling and shooting, he has been directly involved in goals far more often. In his 14 league appearances under Moyes, the Austrian has averaged a goal or an assist every 106 minutes. In contrast, Payet averaged a goal or an assist every 122 minutes in 2015/16. 
 
 
Following his excellent debut season in 2015/16, Dimitri Payet earned a well-deserved nomination for the PFA Player of the Year award. 
 
If Marko Arnautovic can maintain his current form until the end of the season, is a place among the PFA's shortlist for 2017/18 out of the question?
