Dimitri Payet and Memphis Depay scored their first goals for their new Ligue 1 clubs since moving from the Premier League in the January transfer window.

Former West Ham midfielder Payet scored from a free-kick as Marseille, who he rejoined, defeated Guingamp 2-0.

And ex-Manchester United midfielder Depay came on as a second-half substitute to fire in Lyon's fourth goal as they defeated Nancy 4-0.

The Dutchman also won the penalty which resulted in Lyon's third.

Elsewhere, Nice kept the pressure on leaders Monaco with a 1-0 win over St Etienne.

They are third on 52 points, one place behind defending champions Paris St-Germain on goal difference, although both teams trail Monaco by three points.
