Reaction from the Olympique captain, Dimitri Payet, in a post-match interview with Canal+, following OM's victory away at Nice, concluding the eighth match day in Ligue 1's 2017-18 season.

"We played against a great team with a lot of power in the attack. We knew that it would be a tough game. Despite the two early goals, we held our nerve and got the job done, even though we didn't necessarily play particularly well. But it all paid off tonight. We've been playing in this formation for a few games now, and it's starting to come together: even though we didn't have much possession, we managed to run on the pitch, and stand up to a team that knows how to take the ball. We were particularly effective in the first half, where we managed to mark almost all their plays. The goal and the start of the second half really hurt them.
With Mandanda and Pelé, we're lucky enough to have two superb keepers. Every time they play, they really perform. Hats off to Steve because, at 4-3, things could have been awkward."
