The World Cup-winning forward put in a stunning showing against Lyon on Sunday, but he feels he could have contributed even more to the cause

Kylian Mbappe netted four times in a stunning showing for Paris Saint-Germain against Lyon, but he believes he should have contributed even more.

The 19-year-old, who now has 10 goals in seven appearances this season, put in a remarkable second-half performance at Parc des Princes on Sunday.

Mbappe struck an incredible four times in just a 13-minute spell, with PSG hammering their Ligue 1 rivals 5-0.

Mbappe was delighted to walk away with another match ball, but still feels that he could have done even better.

“There have been a lot of things in this game that will make us remember it,” the France international told CanalPlus.

“I should have scored more goals, it’s part of the steps I have to go to get to the top. But at no time [have] I doubted. As long as an attacker creates opportunities, everything is fine.”

Mbappe was also involved in PSG’s opening goal against Lyon, as it was he who won the penalty which presented Neymar with an opportunity to break the deadlock.

The World Cup winner took charge from that point and can expect to add a Ballon d’Or nomination to his ever-growing list of achievements.

There is little chance of the humble teenager being swept up in the hype which surrounds him, though, with collective success of greater importance to him than individual accolades.

Mbappe added after helping PSG to a history-making ninth successive Ligue 1 win to open the season: “The most important thing is the work of a whole team and the record of the day.

"I will insist on the collective. We wanted to win and make history in this championship. We wanted this record. We have a new coach, a new philosophy, and we've shown that we can adapt.

“When we make the effort for each other, it makes the difference.”

Liverpool are the only side PSG have failed to beat this season, with the Reds having claimed a dramatic 3-2 victory at Anfield on matchday one of the 2018-19 Champions League.
