Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe insisted that he "should have scored more" despite netting four times in a magnificent individual display as Paris Saint-Germain thrashed Lyon on Sunday.

Mbappe's fourth and PSG's 5th goal of the match came in the 74th minute.

Mbappe took the World Cup by storm in the summer, becoming the first teenager since Pele in 1958 to score twice in the final and winning the award for the tournament's best young player.

Asked if the Mbappe-Neymar partnership is the best attacking duo in football, Tuchel replied: "One of the best yes".

Kylian Mbappe poses with the crowd and cameras during his goal spree for Paris St Germain.

It was PSG's ninth Ligue 1 win in a row since the start of the season, and eclipsed the 82-year-old record set by Olympique Lillois during the 1936-37 campaign.

"The Ballon d'Or? Why not?"

No Columbus Day in Columbus, Ohio? City says it can't afford one
Basically, it's hard to tell if banks , post offices, schools , and the stock market are open or closed on Columbus Day. Columbus Day, honoring explorer Christopher Columbus, falls on the second Monday of October-in 2018, that's October 8.

PSG was reduced to 10 men when defender Presnel Kimpembe was sent off with a straight red midway through the first half.

The night saw French International Kylian Mbappe score 4 goals in a matter of 13 seconds to give PSG a 5 - nil victory over Lyon.

Bruno Genesio's side have taken the scalps of Manchester City and Marseille this season, but there was no way back for them after Anthony Lopes had inexplicably raced off his line to fell Mbappe.

'For me he's a phenomenon.

In addition to scoring four second-half goals, Mbappe also won the penalty from which Neymar opened the scoring at Parc des Princes as the reigning French champions established an eight-point lead at the top. He is not among the favorites for the Ballon d'Or. He is only 19 years and 9 months old. That day, Mbappe reacted wildly to a challenge from behind, shoved his opponent angrily to the ground and had to be restrained by teammates.

"I think we have a great team, we have high quality players, but it's still early", Neymar said. "We see in each of his matches the potential that he has, he exploits it every time, even if he is only 19".
