Neymar’s brace not enough as Monaco hold PSG in Ligue 1

Neymar PSG's four-man attack is working

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi have been in outstanding form along with their team, the "Fantastic Four" contributing 58 goals between them since the campaign began. "However, I think it is a bit complicated - ask PSG", said Neymar following a recent match against Monaco.

Neymar opened the scoring for Thomas Tuchel's men but Monaco hit back with goals from Gelson Martins and Wissam Ben Yedder.

The goal was initially ruled out, before a VAR review judged that Marquinhos played the Monaco striker onside. "But I think we simply made an vast effort tonight", said Moreno after his extremely impressive Ligue 1 Conforama debut.

In a prickly response, Tuchel said: "Do you think differently, that they [Gueye and Verratti] are not complementary?"

"We didn't put in our best performance but we tried".

PSG remain in charge at the Ligue 1 summit with 46 points from 19 matches, five clear of Marseille.

Four-day Tests - Newspaper
The ICC will consider the proposal to make test cricket four-day at its March Cricket Committee meeting. It might be an option for the lower-ranked teams, but not when two big teams clash.

Monaco hit back nearly immediately as Cesc Fabregas threaded a neat ball through for Ben Yedder and although he was chopped down by Keylor Navas, the rebound rolled into the path of Martins who tapped into an empty net.

"Recently we've some troubles [in defence], because Presnel [Kimpembe] was injured for a few weeks, Thilo Kehrer was injured for a long time, he's already played twice, so it was not the moment for him to play a third time, Abdou Diallo was not available and it was the first game for Thiago Silva". They conceded three goals in a home league game for the first time since October 2010 and Dortmund - with an impressive attack of their own - will have found it interesting viewing.

They levelled 12 minutes later, however, as Ballo-Toure deflected Neymar's attempt into his own goal.

Júlio Tavares bagged the game's on goal with his fourth league goal of the season on 47 minutes.

Neymar jumped to the defence of the PSG manager's 4-4-2 system, and went on to suggest that Islam Slimani was offside when he scored a 70th-minute equaliser for the visitors.

Lille are unbeaten at home but have won just once in 10 outings on the road while losing on seven occasions.
