"With a nine-point cushion the title is very close," he told reporters. "With a win at home on Sunday, we'll win the league. This match was a good experience. We had total control of the game, we won 1-0, but we were a bit complacent at the end and that gave Evian hope.
"Tactically, the game was good, and [Marco] Verratti played a fantastic game. He is still young and he has been warned about stepping out of line but he still got sent off. He did not understand that he must be careful when he already has a yellow card."
Marseille are in second place, while Lyon are four points behind OM in third.
