PSG: Kylian Mbappé elected player of the month for October in Ligue 1

One more distinction for Kylian Mbappé. PSG’s number 7 won the UNFP trophy for the month of October in Ligue 1. With 3 goals and 1 assist, he was named alongside his teammate and prodigy Warren Zaire-Emery, and Monegasque Aleksandr Golovin. This is the tenth time in his career that “Kyks” has entered his name on the player of the month list. Absolute record.

However, Mbappé had a very complicated start to the month, with a severe defeat on Newcastle’s lawn in the Champions League (4-1). Not decisive the following weekend against Rennes before the international break, the Parisian striker went to glean his title in the last week, first by converting his penalty against Strasbourg before offering a decisive pass to Carlos Soler (3-0 victory).

For the last match of October against Brest, he scored twice to allow PSG to escape the Breton trap (3-2 away victory). If these performances in the Champions League or in the blue jersey do not count, the Bondynois still scored three goals in two matches with the French team, and also particularly distinguished himself during the demonstration of his against AC Milan (3-0) thanks to a splendid goal.

Mbappé succeeds on the list since the start of the season the Monegasque Takumi Minamino, elected player of the month for August, and Marcin Bulka, resplendent in September in the cages of OGC Nice. There is no doubt that with his hat-trick against Stade de Reims, PSG number 7 is also (already) positioned for the UNFP trophy for best player of the month of November.
