Edinson Cavani: Came off the bench to score

Edinson Cavani: Came off the bench to score

Following a goalless but entertaining first half on Sunday night, Maxwell needed just five minutes of the second to send the champions into a lead with his third of the season before substitute Edinson Cavani wrapped up all three points with little over 10 minutes to play.

Victory for Laurent Blanc's men, their third in a row in the league, takes them eight points clear at the summit after Monaco suffered defeat at St Etienne on Saturday.

Salomon Kalou scored his first hat-trick in Ligue 1 as Lille came from behind to beat Ajaccio 3-2 in a bad-tempered affair at the Stade Francois-Coty.

Despite falling behind to Junior Tallo's strike, the quickest goal this season in the French top flight, Kalou's effort from open play was sandwiched by two penalties to secure a first win on the road since October.

Remi Garde's team held on despite seeing Adama Soumaoro sent off late on.

Tallo had offered the Corsicans hope just before the break when he scored his second of the game to send the teams in level but a contentious second-half spot-kick proved enough to eventually separate the two sides as Ajaccio boss Christian Baroni was sent to the stands for his protests.

Lyon were held to their third goalless draw this season at the Stade Gerland by Montpellier in a game the hosts largely dominated from start to finish.

Clement Grenier tested visiting goalkeeper Geoffrey Jourdren from several free-kicks in what proved to be a hotly-contested duel but Montpellier held out to stretch their unbeaten league run to nine games.

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

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.
