Mbappe: Luis Enrique refused to accept that they should put in a less dominant performance

Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris St-Germain fended off a Brest fightback to win and move up to second in Ligue 1.

Warren Zaire-Emery put the visitors ahead with a shot from distance early on before Mbappe’s deflected finish appeared to have them in control.

Steve Mounie got one back for Brest with a header before Jeremy Le Douaron nodded in an equalizer.

But Kylian slotted in the winner late on after his initial penalty was denied.

It was harsh on Brest, who had looked the most likely to grab the winner as Gianluigi Donnarumma made some crucial saves.
