Kylian Mbappe's blistering scoring run was the top highlight of PSG's first leg win over Manchester United
Mbappe seems to thrive on the biggest stages
Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe is taking his sterling 2018 and carrying it into the new year. The Frenchman scored off of a magnificent run against Manchester United to go up 2-0 inby doing what he does best: Being faster than everyone on the pitch.
The goal came in the 60th minute as Mbappe split two Manchester United defenders and received a brilliant cross from Angel Di Maria.
The goal caught the eye of former NFL receiver Chad Johnson, who had to give Mbappe credit for the run.
Despite the incredible pass from Di Maria, Mbappe simply stole the show on the goal.
The fact is, Mbappe is scary fast, and, at just 20 years old, he isn't going anywhere. There were concerns about how PSG would fare without the likes of Neymar and Edinson Cavani, but Mbappe made those worries disappear in the first leg against United. His speed is enough to take on an entire backfield, as we saw here, and he gave PSG a commanding lead in one of the more intriguing UCL knockout matchups.
PSG and United will meet again in Paris for the second leg on March 6 (available streaming on fuboTV).
