Worn by a Payet big night, OM won against Lyon at the end of the 13th day of Ligue 1 (2-1). Find the tops and flops of this very lively shock.
Payet hits hard
The man of this shock. Very offensive in a press conference against Rudi Garcia, Dimitri Payet has released the great game on the lawn of Velodrome. Author of a double, deceiving Lopes first penalty, then a nice cross shot, the Reunion delivered a recital in the first period. In all the good moves, he knew how to combine precise gestures and combativeness. Like his tackle at the origin of the action of the second goal. Payet has clearly released one of its best benefits for very long months.
Kamara on its way
Did Andre Villas-Boas find the right formula in the midfield? As against Lille last weekend, Boubacar Kamara delivered a big performance in an unusual role of sentinel. His all-weather pressing for an hour, a perfect symbol of the intensity of Marseilles, greatly hampered the Gones. Repositioned in central hinge after the expulsion of Gonzalez, he remained solid until the end.
The activity of Sanson
On the left of Kamara in the midfield of Marseille, Morgan Sanson made a perfect copy in the commitment. The former Montpellier has multiplied the races and has constantly made available. His ability to hold the ball helped OM late in the game.

Thiago Mendes at fault
We had left on a good impression against Benfica. But this Sunday, Thiago Mendes fell back in its wake. The Brazilian, overtaken in the first half, conceded the penalty early in the game, controlling the ball with his hand in the box. A bad reflex that has cost the OL. The former Lille has never recovered from this error and has too little influence on the game Lyon.
The air hole of Alvaro Gonzalez
From one extreme to the other. Imperial in the first period, Alvaro Gonzalez was gone to make a very big game. But OM's Spanish defender sank back from the locker room. Warned for a nudge on Aouar, he completely forgot Dembele on the goal Lyon. And it is by committing a new fault on the Rhone striker that the player loaned by Villarreal has received a red card.
The dirty evening of Aouar
Houssem Aouar still can not follow. Promoted captain at the start, the Lyon midfielder did not exist enough in a relay role in the first period. Rudi Garcia tried to give him the keys to the game by repositioning behind Dembele from the restart, but he had to leave the field quickly, victim of a muscle injury. The epilogue of a sad evening.
