Mathieu Valbuena injured in Marseille defeat

Mathieu Valbuena

Marseille playmaker Mathieu Valbuena will be out for four to six weeks after injuring his shoulder in the 1-0 defeat by second-placed Lille.

The 29-year-old France international was replaced after 70 minutes when he hurt himself falling after a collision with Lille defender Simon Kjaer.

Nolan Roux went on to score an injury-time headed winner for Lille, who are now one point behind Paris St-Germain, who face Evian on Wednesday.

Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has now kept 11 straight clean sheets in the league.

Elsewhere in Ligue 1, Monaco stayed one point behind Lille with a 3-0 victory at Nice.

James Rodriguez, Emmanuel Rivere and Lucas Ocampos scored the goals for the principality side.
