Kylian Mbappe: Monaco forward suffers possible injury in win over Toulouse

Kylian Mbappe: Monaco forward suffers possible injury in win over Toulouse”

Kamil Glik scored the victor with 20 minutes left as Monaco came from behind twice to claim a 3-2 win at the Stade Louis II.

Those heroics have come at a cost, however, as a number of first-team players have departed the club during the summer, including Tiemoue Bakayoko, who has joined Chelsea, and Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy, who have both moved to Manchester City.

Rival PSG, in turn, has been boosted by Brazil star Neymar's arrival for a world record £198m price-tag.

The Portuguese has steered them to top-three finishes in every campaign since joining in 2013-14 and previous year Monaco played some of the most attractive football in Europe as they netted 107 league goals on the way to a famous title triumph.

Monaco made a sloppy start on a hot evening but showed they still has the resources to defend their title, especially if star striker Mbappe decides to stay.

Kamil Glik scored the victor with 20 minutes left after Jemerson and Radamel Falcao leveled twice for the hosts in the opening game of the season.

The Champions managed to level matters five minutes later as Falcao headed home Jorge's cross.

The France global has been courted by major European teams and his future at Monaco remains unclear.

"We know that it will be very hard to successfully defend our title and everybody knows who the favourites are", Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said ahead of Friday's opening day of the season.

The teenager was recently awarded the No. 10 jersey by Monaco as the French Riviera club do all within their power to keep him in his current setting.
