Mbappe blasts PSG's team-mates after 5-1 defeat to Lille

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has called on his team-mates to show more personality, after they were thrashed 5-1 by Lille on Sunday.

Thomas Muenier gave the hosts the lead after putting the ball into his own net after seven minutes, before Juan Bernat restored parity four minutes later.

That means they conceded five goals for the first time in France since 2000, and was also their heaviest defeat since 2010.

The Parisiens thought they had taken an early lead when Mbappe touched home Meunier's cross, but the goal was correctly disallowed for offside, and moments later it was Lille who went ahead.

With their first real attack, Jonathan Ikone crossed from deep on the right and Meunier inadvertently turned it into his own net with Alphonse Areola wrong-footed.

But then Bernat got sent off 10 minutes before half-time and what happened after the break could not have been predicted.

Despite the setback, PSG had the next great chance but Maignan made a great save low to his left to keep out Julian Draxler's close-range effort.

If that was a setback, you would not have known it from Lille's second-half performance.

As if the two injury blows were not enough for PSG, they were reduced to ten men with ten minutes remaining of the first stanza as Bernat received a straight red card for a challenge on Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe finished off a one-on-one and Jonathan Bamba smashed in at the near post to put Lille in control.

The scoring did not stop there as former Southampton defender Jose Fonte bagged home the side's fifth on the night by nodding home a cross from Pepe to rub salt into the wounds of PSG, who will now have to wait another three days to secure the title against Nantes.
