A superb double from Dimitri Payet secured Marseille a hard-fought victory over Lyon at the Stade Velodrome - and ensured that Andre Villas-Boas' men got the better of their former boss.

The former West Ham star had netted the hosts' first from the penalty spot on 18 minutes, and returned to haunt the Ligue 1 strugglers once again in the latter stages of the half after receiving the ball on the edge of the box and curling beyond Anthony Lopes.

Lyon rallied after the break and halved the deficit through Moussa Dembele, and were handed further hope of salvaging a point after Marseille centre half Alvaro Gonzalez was handed his marching orders.
