Kone stars for Levante

The tiny Valencia-based club went top of the table earlier this season for the first time since they were founded 102 years ago but a run of three defeats meant they lost ground.

Levante are now fourth with 26 points from 13 games, eight behind leaders Real Madrid who thumped Atletico Madrid 4-1 on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho's side moved six points clear of second-placed Barcelona who suffered their first defeat of the campaign at Getafe, losing 0-1. Valencia are third with 27 points after a 2-1 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday. Levante face Barca next weekend.  Sevilla climbed to fifth with 21 points after an Alvaro Negredo penalty secured a scrappy 1-0 win at Real Zaragoza.
