Andre-Pierre Gignac: Scored the winner for Marseille

Brandao opened the scoring after 33 minutes and a Fethi Harek own goal sealed the win in the last minute.

The victory moved St Etienne into the final Champions League place on goal difference, with Lille, now in fourth, set to play Lyon on Sunday.

Marseille maintained their push for European football with a 1-0 win over Lorient.

Andre-Pierre Gignac's goal with just eight minutes to play decided the match as L'OM extended their unbeaten league run to five games.

There was drama at the other end of the table as second-bottom Sochaux scored an 88th-minute equaliser and twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at relegation rivals Valenciennes.

Florian Marange's late header came just two minutes after Majeed Waris' second goal and denied the hosts a win which would have taken them out of the bottom three.

Waris opened the scoring with a penalty in the 51st minute, with Sebastien Corchia getting the visitors' first leveller three minutes later.

Bordeaux enjoyed a welcome return to winning ways as Henri Saivet's late header handed them a 2-1 victory over struggling Evian.

Kevin Berigaud looked to have earned the visitors a point in the 73rd minute when he cancelled out Julien Faubert's 52nd-minute opener, but Saivet popped up eight minutes from time to nick all three points for the hosts.

Basement boys Ajaccio slipped closer to the trapdoor with a 2-0 loss at Montpellier, Anthony Mounier and Remy Cabella scoring in the second half.

Elsewhere, Mustapha Yatabare's stoppage-time goal earned Guingamp their first league win in 11 attempts at the expense of Nice, who had goalkeeper David Ospina sent off for dissent at the death.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

P

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
