PSG's Mbappe: 'Amazing to play with Neymar'

PSG's Mbappe: 'Amazing to play with Neymar'

Les Gones have not been crowned Championnat kings since the last of their seven consecutive titles back in 2008 but they are still stronger than most opponents in the French top flight.

That honour is instead bestowed upon Cavani, who scored from the spot in the 5-0 win over Celtic on Tuesday.

"The integration of Mbappe was also natural and quick".

So PSG's decision to splash the cash on Neymar and Mbappe in the summer already looks justified.

"I'm very happy, it was a very good match, it was very important to win and playing with great players is always a pleasure", said Neymar after his PSG Champions League debut.

"Concerning the foreign arrivals, they know that they have to speak French".

While many have expressed concern over the disproportionate spending power of the Qatari-backed capital club, there are few more outspoken critics than Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas. We respect all the regulations.

The trio all netted in the first 40 minutes of the midweek game in Glasgow, meaning they have scored eight goals between them in the two matches they have played together. I don't want to see disrespect for team-mates, the opposition, the club, for the fans, for the issues happening in the world.

It doesn't seem as if Cavani will be quite so accommodating.

PSG will need the 25-year-old to continue his fine form when they face an early test in their quest for the Ligue 1 against Lyon on Sunday. However, with Nabil Fekir, Memphis Depay, Mariano Diaz and Bertrand Traore, this young team still possess the firepower to hurt PSG.

Lining up either side of Edinson Cavani, both Neymar and Mbappe have looked impressive and Emery has lauded the ease at which the pair have fitted into the first team.

Since leaving Barcelona, to join Paris Saint-Germain, our former striker, Neymar Jnr, has started his new career well.

Emery said: "Neymar is here to help the team, to improve its quality".

But Cavani alone was not going to be enough for PSG to take down some of their opponents in the Champions League.
