Neymar: My son loves Mbappe a lot

Records are great, but I want to insist of the team aspect - there will be other chances to speak about records.

"I will continue to progress, to play".

"We wanted to win, we wanted this record at all costs". This time Mbappe scored from inside the box after getting the ball on a rebound from Neymar's strike. We have a very strong friendship so I am very happy when he scores, when he plays a match like this and I hope to help him to make more matches like this.

"Kylian is one of them, he is a technical leader and the group respects him".

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel paid tribute to his players, who hold an eight-point lead over second-placed Lille and have scored 32 goals in nine goals.

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.

The France worldwide netted four times in 13 second half minutes as Lyon were beaten 5-0. My team do not surprise me as I know that they are capable of special things.

On Mbappe, Tuchel was impressed by the teenager's quadruple but also suggested that he could and should have scored even more.

The second half saw the French midfielder play one of his best matches of the season, before Alexis Sanchez claimed a dramatic late victor .

But he didn't do what Robert Lewandowski did in 2015, scoring five goals in nine minutes.

"I'm very satisfied because he has not lost confidence, he has been magnificent".

After beating Guingamp 3-1 in August, he described Neymar as a "superstar, more than me".

With this goal, Mbappe has become the youngest player in Ligue 1 history to score 4 goals in one match.

After earning the penalty for Neymar's opener, the 19-year-old forward scored four goals in 13 second-half minutes to maintain PSG's ideal start to the league season.

The striker is a serious contender to win FIFA's Ballon d'Or award which has a shortlist of 30 players.

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.
