Cedric Mongongu: Scored against Monaco

Former Monaco defender Cedric Mongongu's 82nd-minute penalty proved the difference after Ricardo Carvalho was penalised for handball.

Evian had already beaten champions-in-waiting Paris St Germain and Lyon in Annecy this season and their latest giant-killing lifted them five points above the relegation zone.

That result dealt a blow to Sochaux's hopes of survival.

Earlier in the day defender Stoppila Sunzu had put second from bottom Les Lionceaux on the brink of victory over Marseille with a 25th minute goal.

However, their seventh league win of the season was snatched away in the 90th minute by Marseille defender Nicolas N'Koulou.

Jonathan Zebina missed a stoppage time penalty which could have claimed a come-from-behind win for Toulouse at rock bottom Ajaccio.

Zebina saw his shot saved by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in the third minute of added time as the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Ricardo Faty and Mehdi Mostefa had the home side in control before Issiaga Sylla and Clement Chantome hit back.

Vincent Aboukar scored a first-half penalty as Lorient halted a two-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw at Reims.

The visitors took the lead through Aboukar's penalty in first-half stoppage time before Odair Fortes struck back four minutes after the break for the hosts.

Nantes and Bordeaux battled out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at the Stade de la Beaujoire, while Montpellier's match against relegation-threatened Valenciennes also finished goalless.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
