Marquinhos: Celebrates goal in PSG's win over Toulouse

Marquinhos: Celebrates goal in PSG's win over Toulouse

Edinson Cavani came off the bench to add a second from the penalty spot with little over 10 minutes remaining, his third league goal of the season, as PSG reclaimed top spot until Sunday evening at least.

Defeat for Toulouse leaves them languishing in mid-table as Alain Casanova's men failed to make it three league wins on the bounce following victories over Lorient and St Etienne.

PSG top the table by one point from Monaco - who travel to Reims on Sunday - and Marseille, who were 2-0 winners away to Lorient.

Mathieu Valbuena celebrated his 28th birthday with a superb second-half free-kick to fire his team ahead before Andre Ayew struck in stoppage time to wrap up all three points.

Lorient have managed only two wins over Marseille in Brittany in 11 attempts and defeat for Christian Gourcuff's men on Saturday means their early-season unbeaten home record is now at an end.

Lille are hanging on to fourth place after a goalless draw away to Lyon, but Nice have moved level on points with a 1-0 win over Guingamp, Dario Cvitanich heading in unmarked from a free-kick in the 48th minute.

That moved them above St Etienne, who conceded two late goals to draw 2-2 at home to Bastia - the controversial equaliser arriving four minutes into time added on.

The hosts took the lead through Franck Tabanou's volley in the 27th minute and were cruising when Ismael Diomande fired in a powerful effort just before the hour mark.

But with time counting down, Gianni Bruno scored an 85th-minute goal for the visitors and Francois Modesto claimed a late, late equaliser - with strong suspicions of offside - in almost the last action of the match.

Check Diabate's second-half equaliser denied Evian a first-ever victory over Bordeaux in Ligue 1 in a 1-1 draw that kept both clubs looking over their shoulders in the lower reaches of the table.

Kevin Berigaud scored in the 26th minute to give Evian hope of ending their hoodoo, but Diabate's goal 20 minutes from time ensured the spoils were shared.

There was further drama with the dismissal of Maxime Poundje 10 minutes from time but Evian could not take advantage.

Quickfire early goals gave Sochaux a 2-0 win over Valenciennes.

Cedric Bakambu fired in the first in the 12th minute and Carlao doubled the lead six minutes later from a corner.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
