Find out what the Lyon camp had to say to OL TV after their 2-1 victory over Toulouse in their final match of 2017:

Nabil Fekir: "Overall, I think we played well and controlled the game. Fortunately our defence was excellent and we could count on a superb Anthony Lopes to preserve our lead in the second half. It's a shame we didn't kill the game off earlier, even if we got the win in the end. Now we can relax with family and friends."

Lucas Tousart: "We should have made the game safe earlier, it would have avoided that tense finish. Tonight we defended together, even if we had a bit of luck occasionally to help keep Toulouse out. The main thing was the victory and now we can head off on holiday in the right frame of mind."

Anthony Lopes: "The coach asked us to do the job and finish the year with 41 points. We've done that, even if we should have been two or three goals up at half-time. We got the three points and we are very happy with the first half of the season. We dug in when we needed to and weathered the storm. Now we get a ten-day break and will come back even stronger in January. Everything went very fast for my save in the second half and it really just a reflex to make the save from Corentin Jean."

Rafael: "I'm delighted to have helped the team by scoring that goal. My first instinct was to hit it first time, but then I decided to control and shoot. It was my seconde goal for OL. In football, you don't win with just 11 players and we proved that again tonight."
