Zlatan Ibrahimovic: On the scoresheet in PSG draw

The talismanic Swede fired the hosts into a first-half lead with a deflected free-kick before Rio Mavuba levelled on the stroke of half-time for Rene Girard's men.

Former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou fired Lille into a second-half lead from the penalty spot shortly after the break but Montenegro international Marko Basa put through his own net to hand PSG a valuable point in their hunt for back-to-back Ligue 1 titles.

The result leaves the visitors a point behind Monaco in third place and four behind their hosts who go into the winter break top of the table.

Marseille came back from two goals down to claim a hard-fought 2-2 draw with Bordeaux at the Stade Velodrome.

Jussie's first-half strike and a second from Nicolas Maurice-Belay sent Bordeaux into a surprise two-goal lead.

But in a blistering 60-second period, strikes from Alaixys Romao andAndre-Pierre Gignac secured a point for Marseille, under the control of caretaker coach Jose Anigo following Elie Baup's sacking.

Marseille's failure to claim all three points leaves them without a Ligue 1 win in four games and languishing in sixth place.

Alain Traore scored a dramatic last-minute goal to salvage Lorient a point with a 2-2 draw against Lyon at the Stade Yves Allainmat.

Clement Grenier set the visitors on their way with a first-half strike before Bafetimbi Gomis added a second shortly after the break but, after Vincent Aboubakar's reply gave the hosts hope, the Burkina Faso international came off the bench to cap an emotional return from injury.

A draw for Christian Gourcuff's men brings an end to a run of five consecutive wins but they remain two points above their opponents in the table having gone seven games without defeat.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
