Marseille lose again as Ayew inspires Lorient

Jordan Ayew scored twice against former club Olympique de Marseille, for whom brother André also registered, as Lorient FC won 5-3 away to ease relegation fears.

Olympique de Marseille suffer fresh setback in a 5-3 home defeat by FC Lorient.
• Former OM forward Jordan Ayew opens scoring as hosts lose fourth straight Ligue 1 game.
• Ayew sets up Lorient's second shortly afterwards for François Bellugou.
• Jordan's older brother André Ayew reduces deficit after half-time.
• Jéméry Morel equalises, but Romain Philippoteaux puts the visitors back in front.
• Michy Batshuayi brings OM level again, only for Ayew and Mathias Autret to pounce late on.
• Marcelo Bielsa's men lie fourth, two points behind AS Monaco FC having played one game more.
• Lorient lift themselves out of relegation zone up to 14th ahead of weekend fixtures.
