Elie Baup: Leaves Marseille sitting fifth in Ligue 1

The 1-0 loss, which saw Alejandro Bedoya net a 16th-minute winner for the visitors, was Marseille's second league defeat in the space of four days having also gone down by the same scoreline at Lille on Tuesday.

And those back-to-back defeats have seen L'OM slip to fifth in the Ligue 1 standings, two points behind fourth-placed Nantes and eight adrift of Monaco in the third and final UEFA Champions League spot.

Monaco could also move further clear when they play second-bottom Ajaccio on Sunday.

Marseille are also already out of Europe this season after failing to pick up a single point from their first five Champions League Group F matches against Arsenal, Borussia Dormund and Napoli.

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
