First of all we completely controlled the game.and then the second half was completely different.

Speaking in an interview with Téléfoot Chaine, AS Monaco's game-changer Cesc Fabregas explained how his club was able to overturn a two-goal deficit to beat PSG.

Neymar, meanwhile, has scored twice and set up three goals across five league games, with his start to the season having been disrupted by injury and suspension.

Mbappe has continued to impress this season - he has scored nine goals in seven Ligue 1 appearances, while he has provided five assists. We weren't serious enough. "We are completely responsible for this defeat, when the match was nearly over in our favour".

Maybe it was too easy and the players got the impression that it was already 3-0 or 4-0 when it was only 2-0. We didn't recover the ball with the same quality, and we didn't seriously defend.

PSG forked out a world-record fee of €222 million (£198m/$263m) to bring Neymar to Parc des Princes from Camp Nou in August 2017.

"We have to accept the criticism because we have completely stopped playing football".

Moise Kean thought he had given PSG a three-goal lead later in the half but his effort was chalked off by VAR for offside, which was also the reason given by the video technology to deny Mbappe a first-half hat-trick.

The former Chelsea midfielder completed 32 of his 36 passes, including 86.4 per cent of his attempts in the PSG half, but Tuchel said his side were to blame as they ceded control.

Monaco climb to second spot PSG remain clear at the top of Ligue 1, but this result is a major setback for Thomas Tuchel's team before a crucial Champions League tie against RB Leipzig next week.

'We don't have the right to have a half like that with the team we have'.

Tuchel acknowledged the champions were hamstrung a little by the looming home Champions League clash with Leipzig, though.

PSG is now in the top spot in the Ligue 1 standings with 24 points from 11 matches.
