    Salvatore Sirigu

    The goalkeeper made two excellent reflex saves to deny Monnet-Paquet and Aboubaker, to ensure that PSG picked up a clean sheet.

  • Marquinhos

    Marquinhos

    The youngster made a few errors in terms of pass completion, but generally had little to do against a Lorient side that offered little offensively.

  • Alex

    Alex

    A solid performance, as the Brazilian made no mistakes and steered his side towards a cruising victory.

  • Lucas Digne

    3.50

    Lucas Digne

    Provided an excellent delivery for Lucas to convert in the early stages, and offered plenty in terms of marauding runs in the second half.

  • Christophe Jallet

    Christophe Jallet

    Didn't offer a great deal offensively, but the former Lorient man made a few important interceptions.

  • Jérémy Menez

    Jérémy Menez

    Took his goal well, and his willingness to run with the ball caused plenty of problems for the likes of Guerreiro.

  • Thiago Motta

    3.50

    Thiago Motta

    A composed and calm performance from the Italy international, as he merely kept things ticking over, making the occasional incisive pass in search of Cavani.

  • Marco Verratti

    Marco Verratti Top of the Match

    All-action and tenacious, the young Italian proved why he is considered a replacement for Andrea Pirlo for Italy. His passing range was excellent.

  • Adrien Rabiot
    2

    3.50

    Adrien Rabiot

    Tenacious and broke up play usefully, although the midfielder might have been a little lucky to get away without a card.

  • Lucas
    8

    3.50

    Lucas

    Took his goal brilliantly, and frightened Lorient whenever he got into full flight. His assist for Cavani was intelligent and perfectly delivered.

  • Edinson Cavani
    5
    0
    3.50

    Edinson Cavani

    Scored twice to stride ahead in Ligue 1's goalscoring charts, converting first with his head and then with an instinctive poacher's finish.

Substitutions

  • Fabien Audard

    2.50

    Fabien Audard

    Unfortunate to pick up an injury after a clash with Rabiot, but the veteran had little to do apart from pick the ball out of his net and claim occasional deliveries.

  • Lamine Kone
    0

    3.00

    Lamine Kone

    The Ivorian made a couple of important last ditch blocks, and his physical stature ensured a physical battle ensued with Cavani.

  • Bruno Ecuele Manga

    3.00

    Bruno Ecuele Manga

    A solid performance from the Gabon defender, who made two important clearances from deep in his own penalty area, and made numerous interceptions.

  • Raphaël Guerreiro
    0
    0
    3.00

    Raphaël Guerreiro

    Struggled to deal with Lucas in full flight, but the Portuguese didn't permit the Brazilian to enjoy himself throughout, forcing him inside.

  • Maxime Baca

    2.00

    Maxime Baca Flop of the Match

    A poor performance from the full-back, who especially struggled when Lavezzi came on as a substitute.

  • Wesley Lautoa

    2.50

    Wesley Lautoa

    PSG's impressive triangles of play prevented the midfielder from seeing much of the ball, but the Frenchman aided keen pressing from the visitors.

  • Yann Jouffre

    2.00

    Yann Jouffre

    Anonymous, minus the occasional glimpse of technical ability. Not a strong outing from the central midfielder.

  • Barthelme Maxime
    0

    2.50

    Barthelme Maxime

    Offered energy but little else. Saw little of the ball and didn't have a great creative impact on proceedings.

  • Vincent Aboubakar
    0
    0
    2.50

    Vincent Aboubakar

    A hard-working and physically impressive performance, as the lone striker stood up to physical scrutiny from Alex and Marquinhos, to carve out a couple of chances for himself.

  • Kevin Monnet-Paquet
    0
    0
    2.00

    Kevin Monnet-Paquet

    Had two opportunities, one of which forced Sirigu into an excellent save. Anonymous for long periods.

Substitutions

  • Baptiste Reynet
    0
    0
    2.00

    Baptiste Reynet

    A first half forced change to replace Audard, the substitute was at possible fault for Cavani's first goal, and didn't make too many notable contributions.

  • S. Diallo
    0
    0
    2.50

    S. Diallo

    Put himself about in midfield, occasionally holding up the ball well as Lorient looked to break as quickly as possible.
