In reality, a look at Mbappe's highlights against Lyon shows that far from there being any tension between the two, he should actually be grateful to Neymar for setting up three of his four goals.

"I will insist on the collective".

"I am very happy for Kylian - he is a player with great qualities and he handles responsibility well". We wanted to measure ourselves against a team like Lyon.

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". We are friends and I hope to help him succeed in more games like this one.

"Kylian is one of them".

Speaking after the match, PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel said: "Fantastic, incredible".

PSG were reduced to ten men in the 33rd minute when Presnel Kimpembe was shown a straight red card for a lunge on Tanguy Ndombele, while Lyon also ended the half with 10 men when Lucas Tousart was given his marching orders. Andrea Raggi was sent off in first-half added time.

Sohail and Shafiq then dug in and made sure no more wickets were lost in the first hour which saw just 19 runs scored in 14 overs. Meanwhile, Wahab Riaz returned to the Test team after a one year gap as the second fast bowler in the team.

"I know my value, I know the pressure that exists, I know my responsibilities". "However, he trained well and then worked tactically for the team here and sacrificed himself defensively".

The 19-year-old got his first score in the 61st minute. "With Neymar they were risky all the time".

"I missed opportunities, I should have scored more", he told Canal+.

The France World Cup victor assisted PSG to set a new French top-flight record of nine straight wins to start a season, having equalled the mark with their 3-0 victory at Nice, two weeks ago.

"Between Kylian, Neymar and Edinson, we really have players fighting for the Ballon d'Or". The Brazilian played in Meunier who had his shot blocked by the goalkeeper as the ball fell back to Mbappe.

By half-time, PSG were ahead but had just 36.9% of possession, with Mbappe's contribution proving decisive to win the tie and put the Parc des Princes on their feet.

"Gigi is a natural leader, he's a legend for me", Neymar said.
