    PARIS, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Lille's Yusuf Yazici scored twice and set up another goal as they hammered visitors Lorient 4-0 to narrow the gap with Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain to two points on Sunday.

    Yazici scored in each half with Luiz Araujo and Jonathan David also scoring to put second-placed Lille on 22 points from 11 games after PSG lost 3-2 at AS Monaco on Friday.

    Olympique Lyonnais are third on 20 points after Tino Kadewere gave them a 1-0 win at Angers earlier on Sunday.

    Montpellier are a surprising fourth, also on 20 points, following their 4-3 home win against Racing Strasbourg. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ken Ferris)
