Former West Ham ace Payet scores for Marseille

Dimitri Payet opened his scoring account in his second spell with Olympique Marseille tonight.

The French playmaker, who controversially returned to the club from West Ham United last month, marked his first start since his Stade Velodrome comeback with a goal in the 2-0 win over Guingamp.

Swansea City loanee Bafetimbi Gomis helped himself to his 14th Ligue 1 goal of the campaign when finishing winter signing Morgan Sanson's cross with a diving header in the 26th minute.

With 76 minutes on the clock, Payet stepped up to a dead ball and fired home a customary free-kick to double Marseille's advantage.

The win sees Marseille remain sixth in the French top flight, some 19 points behind league leaders AS Monaco.
