Paris Saint-Germain

Kylian Mbappe's rise for PSG and France has been meteoric, but what does his future hold?

Wed, 14 Nov 2018 03:51:00 PST

Kylian Mbappe is still too young to buy himself a beer in the U.S., but is a World Cup winner, twice French champion and has a couple of domestic cups in his trophy cabinet at home too. The France forward is the most-talked-about young player in the world and is already among the five best players of any age on the planet right now. And all of that just a month short of his 20th birthday. It will feel like a long time ago for him but in two weeks, on Dec. 2, Mbappe will celebrate the third anniversary...

Edinson Cavani bags a hat trick, PSG annihilate lowly Monaco

Sun, 11 Nov 2018 03:33:00 PST

Edinson Cavani scored a hat-trick, while Neymar converted a penalty to help Paris Saint-Germain come away victorious against a hapless Monaco. Edinson Cavani has gotten PSG off to a flyer, but VAR was needed on both of his goals due to the assistant referee incorrectly flagging for offside. Paris Saint-Germain moved 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with a 4-0 thrashing of Monaco at Stade Louis II on Sunday. Edinson Cavani helped himself to a video-assisted hat trick, while Neymar added one from the penalty spot as the French champions preyed on a Monegasque side in disarray despite Thomas Tuchel rotating his starting XI. Positives Although Monaco rediscovering a bit of form was always going to be a long shot, it had the potential to be a match that saw PSG take their eye off...

Paul Pogba future far from sure at Manchester United but where could he go?

Sat, 10 Nov 2018 01:16:00 PST

Stewart Robson takes a look at the tactics that Jose Mourinho could deploy against City in the Manchester derby. ESPN FC's Mark Ogden sits down with Man City's David Silva to discuss how the Manchester derby has evolved and his favourite moments in the rivalry. Paul Pogba's performances in his past two games, which ended in late, late wins for Manchester United over Bournemouth and Juventus, are a microcosm of his time at the club. Over the course of those matches, he was pivotal yet peripheral, inspirational yet underwhelming. When United looked to him against Bournemouth, he was often sublime, floating past the challenges of desperate opponents and conjuring an assist for Marcus Rashford's winning goal. Yet against Juventus, whose supporters raucously...

Neymar turns in 8/10 performance as PSG impress despite draw at Napoli

Tue, 6 Nov 2018 03:27:00 PST

The FC crew evaluate Neymar's performance in PSG's draw at Napoli in the Champions League, particularly why his impact waned in the second half. Paris Saint-Germain's 1-1 draw at Napoli after Liverpool were beaten 2-0 by Red Star in Belgrade meant that Champions League Group C wound even tighter on Tuesday. Juan Bernat gave the Ligue 1 giants the lead on the stroke of half-time, but PSG gifted the hosts a penalty just after the hour, which Carlo Ancelotti's men equalised with through Lorenzo Insigne. Despite an excellent individual performance from Neymar and Thomas Tuchel's men showing strong organisation for the most part, it was not...

Halloween high jinks: Neymar gets into the spirit; Barcelona fail to frighten

The Exploding Heads bring you the chilling tale of Jose Mourinho's three-year curse and why the manager is doomed to stay at clubs for only three years for eternity. With Halloween upon us once again, the football world has spent the day attempting to chill us to our very bones with their ghoultastic offerings -- some to greater effect than others. - Halloween XI: Spooky selection of Premier League stars Neymar resisted the urge to give himself a starring role, instead letting his son Davi take centre-stage. =€<ƒ pic.twitter.com/9YSDtWfvdL&mdash; Neymar Jr (@neymarjr) October 31, 2018 The Brazil international's employers, Paris Saint-Germain, decided the proper course of action was to give their entire squad heart palpitations by scaring...

Time will tell if Thomas Tuchel can change PSG culture after challenging Mbappe, Rabiot

Tue, 30 Oct 2018 09:54:00 PDT

Tuchel is a manager unafraid to punish his star players and while his first stand-off at PSG, will it work in Paris over the long term? It is not very often that you see a manager unhappy after winning the biggest domestic game of the season. It happened in Marseille on Sunday night where Thomas Tuchel, the Paris Saint-Germain boss, admitted that he was upset despite his players beating their arch rivals 2-0. You would have expected him to be beaming with joy. His team made history by claiming 11 victories from 11 league matches so far this season, equalling the great Tottenham side of 1960-1961. Yet he was angry, but not at the...

Neymar a superhero? PSG star's tattoos come alive in new comic book series

Tue, 30 Oct 2018 08:48:00 PDT

Take an in-depth look at how Neymar's tattoos were brought to life in this unique comic book. Turning international soccer star Neymar into a comic book superhero wouldn't be all that much of a stretch. So a pair of comic book mavens decided to breathe life into Neymar's tattoos instead. That's the premise behind the new comic book series "Inked," which was launched in mid-September and showcased at New York Comic Con in early October. Neymar Sports will donate 1 percent of every issue sold to the Neymar Jr. Project Institute in Jardim Gloria, S&#227;o Paulo, Brazil. The institute helps...

Mon, 29 Oct 2018 05:25:00 PDT

For the first time in 11 years, there was no Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch when Real Madrid took on Barcelona, but there was no dearth of drama in what turned out to be an absolute rout (5-1) for the Blaugrana. So, could we possibly start from any other place? Here are the best numbers from the 239th Clasico and the rest of the weekend's football. 1 Barcelona have won El Clasico for the first time without Lionel Messi since he made his debut in the fixture (1 draw, 1 defeat,...

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner has his say as to whether Marcos Rojo, Hirving Lozano, Christian Eriksen and more could be on the move in Transfer Rater.

FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his Power Rankings, but the FC crew are a bit skeptical of his choices towards the top half of his selections.

Edinson Cavani, Kylian Mbappe both out of sync as PSG settle for draw with Napoli

Wed, 24 Oct 2018 03:49:00 PDT

PSG's run in the Champions League looked to be finished until Angel di Maria scored a breathtaking equaliser. Now Group C is wide open and PSG are still alive. ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol assesses the latest transfer rumours surrounding Antoine Griezmann, Jose Mourinho and more in Transfer Rater. Angel Di Maria spectacularly salvaged Paris Saint-Germain a point at home to Napoli in Champions League Group C with a late equaliser on Wednesday. Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens twice put the Italians in front at Parc des Princes but a Mario Rui own goal and Di Maria's dramatic leveller in the third minute of five added on keeps the French giants within two points of group leaders Liverpool. Positives Just when it looked like it was not going to happen, Di Maria popped up with a moment of...

PSG and Brazil star Neymar shows off new tattoo of Spider-Man and Batman

Wed, 24 Oct 2018 02:28:00 PDT

It's no secret that when it comes to non-footballing hobbies, Neymar is heavily into comic books and body art. Indeed, the Brazilian's extra-curricular passions came together last month when the first issue of his new graphic novel series, "Inked: Art Animates Life" (a story about a superhero with magical tattoos), was launched. Skip forward a few weeks and Neymar is once again combining his twin loves in the latest addition to his own personal tattoo collection.

PSG and Tuchel's season might be defined by Napoli, Marseille results

Tue, 23 Oct 2018 08:50:00 PDT

Thomas Tuchel has had two dates in his head since the end of August. As soon as the Champions League group stage draw was made in Monaco and the fixtures of the competition announced, the PSG manager earmarked this week as the moment of truth during the first part of his first season in Paris. Napoli at home at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday and Marseille away at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday: it doesn't get any bigger than this. With no arrogance, the German coach knew that the season could...

Paris Saint-Germain on a roll but form of 4/10 Edinson Cavani is cause for concern

Sat, 20 Oct 2018 11:11:00 PDT

Paris Saint-Germain secured their second successive five-goal win at the Parc des Princes, this time against SC Amiens. Paris Saint-Germain are one match away from equalling Tottenham Hotspur's record of 11 consecutive wins at the start of a season (in the top five European leagues) after beating Amiens 5-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday. Marquinhos, Adrien Rabiot, Julian Draxler, Kylian Mbappe and Moussa Diaby all scored at Parc des Princes, while Angel Di Maria provided two assists for Thomas Tuchel's under-strength side.
