  • MARSEILLE, France - Florian Thauvin scored one goal and created another to help Marseille beat Nantes 2-0 Friday and provisionally extend its lead atop the French league to four points. Dalton Schultz Jersey .The 21-year-old Thauvin, a France youth international, put Marseille in front with his fourth league goal this season then found defender Rod Fanni with a fine cross for his teams second goal as Nantes nine-match unbeaten run came to an end.After its seventh consecutive home win, Marcelo Bielsas team tops the standings with 34 points, with Nantes trailing 10 points behind in fifth position after 15 games.Defending champion Paris Saint-Germain can stay within one point of the leaders with a win against Nice on Saturday.Compared to last year, they have a different mentality, said Nantes coach Michel Der Zakarian. They are making efforts together and make (their opponents) run and play one-on-one duels. Marseille can bother PSG.Nantes, the best defensive team in the league with just nine goals conceded before its trip to the Velodrome, was dangerous on the break in the first half but lacked the finishing touch.Der Zakarians side created its first chance after eight minutes when a glanced header from Serge Gakpe ended in Remi Gomiss path, with the Nantes midfielder firing a 20-meter strike that forced goalkeeper Steve Mandanda to fist the ball away.Marseille enjoyed most of the possession and broke Nantes defence in the 24th. After retrieving the ball on the right, Dimitri Payet crossed it in the box for Thauvin, who slotted home with a superb left-footed flick.Nantes missed the chance to level as Mandanda was decisive again to deny a good effort from Georges-Kevin Nkoudou before Fanni extended the hosts lead with a header at the near-post from Thauvins cross in the 39th.Marseille stayed in control after the interval and Mandanda enjoyed a quiet second half, although the French international was on his guards to stop Jordan Veretouts effort 18 minutes from time.It was not an easy win, because Nantes played with discipline, but we were solid at the back, said Mandanda. Dalton Schultz Cowboys Jersey . Tokarski, a somewhat controversial choice -- with his 10 games of NHL experience and all -- to replace an injured Carey Price in Game Two had a night to remember, turning back a Rangers team that was dominating play from the get-go, outshooting the Canadiens 14-4 in the first period and 37-25 overall. Dorance Armstrong Jr. Cowboys Jersey . Off-season additions Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley did not train with the club today, prompting Nelsen to declare its too early to tell if either will be ready for Saturday.Didier Drogba may be on his way back to Stamford Bridge. French news outlet LEquipe is reporting that the 36-year-old Ivorian striker will sign with Chelsea at the beginning of next week. The contract is believed to be for "one year or less" according to the report. The report also states that Drogba will be given the chance to become part of the teams coaching staff once he decides to retire.  Drogba spent eight seasons with Chhelsea between 2004 and 2012, twice winning the BPL Golden Boot and leading the team to its first-ever European Championship. Connor Williams Cowboys Jersey. Drogba scored the decisive penalty in Chelseas 2012 Champions League Final victory over Bayern Munich but would depart the club the very next summer for Chinas Shanghai Shenhua. He would return to European competition with Turkish side Galatasaray in 2013-14, scoring 15 goals in 37 appearances. Wholesale NFL Gear Wholesale Jerseys 2018 China NFL Jerseys White Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
