Monaco's players celebrate scoring against Marseille
Monaco have not won Ligue 1 since 2000

Monaco replaced Nice at the top of Ligue 1 after former Manchester United and Chelsea loan signing Radamel Falcao scored in an easy win at Marseille.

Thomas Lemar's lob gave the visitors the lead before Falcao doubled the lead with a delicate chip.

Rolando's header reduced the deficit but two goals from Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva sealed Monaco's fourth win in five league games.

Monaco are level on points with Nice but have a superior goal difference.

Nice, Ligue 1 leaders since 21 September, were earlier held to a goalless draw by bottom club Metz.

Champions Paris St-Germain are third in the table, three points behind the top two, after Julian Draxler scored on his Ligue 1 debut against Rennes on Saturday.

Monaco, who have not won Ligue 1 since 2000, are away to PSG on 29 January before entertaining Nice on 4 February.
