PSG MAINTAIN PERFECT START

Kylian Mbappe again made a decisive contribution as Paris Saint-Germain’s superstar front three combined for the goals in a 3-1 win over Angers in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

On his first start since winning the World Cup with France last month, Mbappe volleyed in PSG’s crucial second goal just after the break at the Parc des Princes, and he then set up Neymar for the goal that clinched the points.

Before that, Edinson Cavani had marked his first appearance of the season with an early opener, only for Thomas Mangani’s penalty to bring Angers back level midway through the first half.

This was a third win in as many games for PSG to start their defence of the French title, and seeing all three members of his ‘MCN’ attack find the net will have been a source of great satisfaction for new coach Thomas Tuchel.

Besides this was the first time in six months that Mbappe, Cavani and Neymar had all played together, with the latter having missed the end of last season due to injury.

Lyon, who will represent France in the Champions League along with PSG and Monaco, beat Strasbourg 2-0 on Friday with goals from Martin Terrier and Bertrand Traore.

Monaco are in action on Sunday at Bordeaux, who are hoping to name Arsenal and France great Thierry Henry as their new coach in the coming days, once Gustavo Poyet’s departure is confirmed.
