Thiago Silva made the cut; who else did?

Paris Saint-Germain ended a busy week in Ligue 1 by retaking top spot for the first time since early November with their home win over Lyon.

However, it was a double week of fixtures in France's top flight with Carlo Ancelotti's men having already thumped Valenciennes 4-0 at the Stade du Hainaut heading into the clash. Marseille are back on song thanks to the return of Andre-Pierre Gignac after the Frenchman returned to former club Toulouse to send OM joint top.

Montpellier finally showed their mettle too with a 4-0 win over dwindling Bastia that was highlighted by Marco Estrada's outrageous volley. Elsewhere, Troyes secured a massive win in the basement battle over Ajaccio on Saturday, but it wasn't straight forward. Lorient and Nice continued their fantastic runs too, slipping in just behind the top three.

Given the high amount of goals in the past week, this selection has a more attacking feel to it.
