Lille returned to the top of the Ligue 1 table on Sunday with a dramatic 2-1 victory over fellow high fliers Marseille.

That victory keeps them above second-placed Rennes on goal difference, with there now 12 games of the season remaining.

Garcia has been keen to avoid title talk all season, as his side have upset the odds on a regular basis, and that remains his stance.

With star striker Moussa Sow and defensive ace Franck Beria picking up knocks against Marseille, he knows there is still a long way to go before the prizes are handed out.

"There are still a lot of matches remaining and nothing has been sorted as yet," said Garcia.

Confidence

"There are a lot of points to play for, but the Marseille match has given us confidence for the remainder of the season.

"We are back on top of the table and we have shown that we are capable of beating the top sides.

"We have, however, picked up injuries. Franck Beria has a serious leg problem and Moussa Sow is carrying a knock.

"We will have to wait and see how bad these injuries are."

Meanwhile, Lille chairman Michel Seydoux has confirmed that the club are looking to sign Eden Hazard's younger brother Killian.

The 15-year-old is set to link up with the league leaders before the end of the season, Seydoux told France Televisions.
