Kylian Mbappe Sets New Record As PSG Massacre Lyon 5 – 0
France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe scored four goals as Paris St-Germain maintained their 100% winning start in Ligue 1 by thrashing Lyon.

Kylian Mbappe further underlined his status as the best young player in the world after making history by scoring four times as Paris Saint-Germain rompted to victory over Lyon.
Mbappe scooped the best young player award as France won the World Cup in the summer and is expected to become the first individual to retain the Golden Boy prize.
The former Monaco forward had enjoyed an impressive start to the 2018-19 campaign, scoring four times in as many Ligue 1 games but was forced to miss three matches after being sent off against Nimes Olympique in September.
Lyon’s trip to the Parc des Princes was Mbappe’s first home league appearance since his return from suspension – and he produced a performance which will live long in the memory.
Neymar gave PSG a half-time lead from the penalty spot, but red cards for Presnel Kimpembe and Lucas Tousart had given proceedings an ill-disciplined tinge.
But after the hour mark, the stage belonged to Mbappe who scored four times in the space of 13 second half minutes as PSG ran riot to further cement their leadership of Ligue 1.
Following Neymar’s mazy run, Mbappe smashed the ball in off the post after 61 minutes. He doubled his tally when Marquinhos crossed, tapping into a virutally empty net.
