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

After suffering their heaviest league defeat in 19 years, 2018 FIFA World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe hit out at his Paris Saint-Germain teammates, saying the Ligue 1 giants played like debutants and lacked personality.

PSG were reduced to 10 men, after Juan Bernat had cancelled out Thomas Meunier's early own goal.

The wing-back was then shown a straight red card for a foul on Nicolas Pepe, Meunier and captain Thiago Silva having already withdrawn due to injuries.

Magalhaes and Fonte sealed an emphatic win for Lille with a header each in the 72nd and 84th minutes, respectively.

Christophe Galtier's side went 2-1 up six minutes into the second half when Pepe beat the offside trap to score from close range.

After the match, Mbappe, speaking with Canal+, admitted PSG's biggest failing on the night was a lack of personality.

"We will win the league, but you have to lose in the right way. We can not lack character like that, concede 3, 4, 5 goals - that is not normal", he told Canal+, per the Mirror. "We made a good start to the match, with four goals, two for us and two offside".

"We will be 13 or 14 players short".

Tuchel only had six substitutes on his bench for the 5-1 defeat.

"But we must play with more personality".

"They didn't have any chance in the first half, and there was Kehrer's opportunity in the beginning of second half".

"With 10 players it became complicated, we played with sick players who should not have played". We lost Lassana Diarra and Adrien Rabiot, while Neymar, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva have missed weeks at a time.

They fell behind after just seven minutes when Thomas Meunier put the ball in his own net.

PSG needed a home win against Strasbourg to clinch an eighth French title last weekend, only to draw 2-2. Everyone sees that. And I will tell that to the president, yes.

Saint-Etienne reclaimed fourth spot in the French top flight after cruising to a 3-0 win over Bordeaux.

St Etienne have 53 points, three behind third-placed Olympique Lyonnais, who occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot.
