Fred continued to win back the hearts of the Lyon fans as the Ligue 1 leaders moved six points clear with a 1-0 victory over lowly Lille on Saturday.

The Brazil striker rounded off a free-flowing move in the 32nd minute to inflict Lille´s first defeat of 2008 in a game played at the Stade de France as part of the stadium´s 10th birthday celebrations.

Fred, who was linked with a move away from the champions in the January transfer window, has returned to favour with a bang. He bagged a brace against Metz last weekend and, having not found the net all season, now has three in two games.
