After a period of injuries, suspensions, and coronavirus quarantines, Thomas Tuchel is finally getting his full squad back together.

It is showing, too, as PSG won their third match in a row at the weekend with a 3-0 away victory versus Reims.

Mauro Icardi may have scored both goals, but Kylian Mbappe inspired the win with two assists.

📷 Mbappe: Match Snapshot

Tuchel named an extremely attacking line-up on the day, and the bravery paid off fairly quickly as PSG took the lead nine minutes in.

A ⏱️ 9' Mbappe earns his first assist of the game by darting in from the left wing into a more central area. He displays impressive strength and speed to easily shrug off the attentions of the Reims player before disguising a lovely pass into the feet of Icardi, who makes no mistake with the finish.

Reims managed to hold on, somehow, for another hour or so despite PSG constantly pounding them with shots and chances.

If the visitors were less profligate in front of goal, the scoreline could have been much higher.

Neymar had a couple of great chances to score, but twice missed the target after a couple of dazzling dribbles.

Mbappe basically played everywhere across the frontline, popping up wherever he saw fit. He probably should have scored early in the game after a darting run into the box, only for the keeper to save his front-post strike.

A ⏱️ 62' He would record his second assist of the match shortly after the hour mark after a gorgeous move from the champions. Mbappe exchanges a neat one-two with Julian Draxler on the edge of the box which sends him in behind, allowing for the low square to the back post for Icardi to tap home. All one-touch football, too.

His overall performance earned him a 9.1 FC Rating.

Mbappe: What Next?

Next for PSG is what should be a relatively routine fixture against Angers. Mbappe could be doing with a season uninterrupted by injury.
