Marseille with a resounding 4-1 win at Lorient

Marseille offered a glimpse of their attacking potential with a resounding 4-1 win at last-placed Lorient, with new recruits Dimitri Payet and Morgan Sanson among the scorers.

All four of Marseille's goals were scored inside the first hour, with center half Jorge Rolando and winger Florian Thauvin grabbing the others.

Payet, Marseille's star signing when he joined for nearly €30 million from Premier League side West Ham in January, made it two in two games with a fine finish.

The win moved Marseille into sixth place, two points ahead of St Etienne.
