Ghana winger Andre Ayew believes Olympique Marseille have the credentials to wrest the Ligue 1 title with big-spending Paris Saint Germain.

PSG have taken a commanding lead at the top of the with Marseille lacking in eighth place with just 18 points from 13 games.

Andre, who is regarded as the most important player at the Stade Velodrome, believes Marseille can repeat last two season's trend.

"When OM won the league two seasons ago, Bordeaux were leading with 8 points but we fought back to win the title," he said.

"Today, it is the same situation. We will win all our matches and claim the top spot."

Andre was the architect of the penalty that Loic Remy converted to seal a 2-0 win over OG Nice on Sunday.

    Which is so weird, because 99% of the diciussson about football comes in the form of people second-guessing and talking about what they would have done differently or what went wrong.How would this hurt the league? People would stop watching or something? Such a bizarre thought process.
