The hosts went ahead in the 20th minute when Salomon Kalou showed good control to round goalkeeper Kossi Agassa before slotting in.

Lille doubled their lead in the fourth minute of the second half as Payet netted his 12th goal of the season.

Marvin Martin flicked the ball up front towards Payet who raced to the edge of the area.

The 26-year-old had time to weigh up his options and drove brilliantly into the top corner with a measured effort that gave Reims goalkeeper Kossi Agassa no chance.

The victory was sealed 10 minutes from time thanks to Kalou, who took capitalized on some slack defending to curl the ball into the far corner.
