Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is up and running at Marseille - to the delight of his boss.

The former Arsenal striker scored his first league goal for the club as they returned to winning ways at home.

OM went 2-0 up against Le Havre in about the same time frame as they did against Albion last week.

But this time they maintained control for a 3-0 win.

An own goal set them on their way before Aubameyang - who was quiet against the Seagulls - rounded off a counter-attack with a delicately chipped finish.

Marseille boss Gennaro Gattuso said: “He has really impressed me.

“He is 34, has had a very good career but he is always ready for his next mission. Always very willing.”

Aubameyang’s clever back-heel set up a late third for Ismaila Sarr for a dominant OM team whose XI showed just two changes (one of them enforced) from that which kicked off against Albion.

AEK Athens are fourth in the league after a 3-0 win at home to Panetolikos.

Domagoj Vida and Harold Moukoudi, their centre-backs who missed the game at the Amex, both scored, along with right-back Lazaros Rota.

AEK have been getting great benefit from set-pieces, as they did when they beat the Seagulls.

They now have nine goals from dead-ball situations this term, five of them in Europe.

Levi Garcia and Steven Zuber did not go away with their national teams and the hope is they will be fit again for a forthcoming programme which includes the home and away Europa clashes with Marseille.

Ajax are now winless in seven games across the competitions.

Branco van den Boomen scored their goal in a 2-1 defeat at home to AZ Alkmaar, for whom Maty Ryan was in goal.

Former Ajax and Holland striker Marco van Basten said: “ The level of the players is simply terrible. It's not Ajax's.

“Normally you have players that other players can cling to, but you don't have one of those now.

“They're all looking for a strong shoulder.

“The youth players have to solve the problems. It's the world upside down.”
