Tuchel: Record-breaking Mbappe could've scored seven goals

09 October 2018

Kylian Mbappe proved at the 2018 World Cup that he's already one of the best players on the planet at the age of 19, and on Sunday the Paris Saint Germain superstar terrorized Lyon with four goals in the span of 13 minutes.

Neymar had nothing but praise for fellow attacker Mbappé post-match, telling reporters: "Kylian is a special guy, for whom I have a lot of affection".

Both Mbappe and Neymar have eight goals for the club on the season.

The difficulty, of course, is that he left La Liga in order to become the best player in the world, not simply to play a part in Mbappe's phenomenal rise.

Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain now have the longest winning streak in Ligue 1 history. In the second half, 10 men against 10, we showed very good mentality - it was incredible.

69th minute: The French youngster was sent through on goal with only goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to beat by a Neymar through ball just past the half-line.

Mbappe is now tied with teammate Neymar as the top scorer in France.

Mbappe's goals came in a 13-minute second-half spell, netting his first with a low strike off the post.

'For me he's a phenomenon.

Regarding PSG cancelling as many as 100 season tickets in the wake of incidents surrounding the midweek clash with Red Star, Al-Khelaifi stressed the importance of safety at Parc des Princes to Les Parisiens' hierarchy.

The only stain on his record so far this year is a red card - the second of his PSG career - he received during injury time on September 1 in a 4-2 win at Nimes, which resulted in a three-game ban.

Thomas Tuchel's Ligue 1 leaders broke the 82-year-old record of 8 consecutive wins set by Olympique Lillois in 1936, having equaled the mark with their 3-0 victory at Nice last weekend.

After the match Mbappe said: "The most important thing is the work of a whole team and the record of the day". "We see in each of his matches the potential that he has, he exploits it every time, even if he is only 19".
