Kylian Mbappe doesn't like being on the bench, it seems. PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel has been careful with the Frenchman since he recovered from his injury, giving him increasing minutes with every game.
Now it looks like he is back and raring to go as in his team's 5-0 hammering of Club Brugge in the Champions League, he came on seven minutes after the break to score the fastest hat-trick in competition history by a substitute.
For his first, he took advantage of some poor goalkeeping to nod into the empty net, and turned provider next to reverse a pass backwards for Mauro Icardi to score.
Then, Mbappe really turned it on by scoring two more times, with both goals a brilliant showcase of his ferocious pace. His second saw him round the keeper before slotting home before darting through on goal to slide a left-footed strike into the bottom corner to earn his third, and the match ball.
He also misplaced just one pass since coming on. One of the best single-half performances you will see this season, or any season.
