Neymar and Edinson Cavani helped keep up a brilliant opening to the season so far for the Ligue 1 leaders, who just can't stop scoring

Paris Saint-Germain added two more goals to their Ligue 1 tally against Monaco to mark their most prolific start ever to a league season. 

Goals from Neymar and Edinson Cavani saw off the hosts' challenge as the Ligue 1 leaders extended their advantage at the summit to nine points on Sunday. 

The club have now scored an amazing 45 times in just 14 outings this season, an average of more than three goals a game so far. 

It also means that PSG have broken their club record for goals scored at this point in a Ligue 1 campaign, and have the most goals of any side in a top European league at this point. 

Not since St. Etienne in 1969-70 has a French team made such a goal-happy start in Ligue 1. 

PSG also equalled the national record for points taken after 14 games of a season. 

Only RC Paris in 1960-1 and PSG themselves in 1985-6 and 2015-16 (the first two adjusted to a win equalling three points instead of two) have matched Unai Emery's men at the beginning of a campaign.
