For those who didn't already know about him Kylian Mbappe really made the world aware of him in two games against Manchester City in the Champions League and now he's at it again.

Mbappe terrorised the City defence over two legs as Monaco made a mockery of anyone who has ever criticised Ligue 1. The pace and attacking qualities of the French league leaders was too much for Pep Guardiola's team to handle.

The teenager was predictably being compared to Thierry Henry after his displays against the Premier League side, sort of inevitable when last season he broke the Arsenal legend's record of youngest goalscorer for Monaco.

Those displays typically led to the teenager, who this week got his first call up to the French national side on the back of his form, to be linked to some of Europe's biggest clubs including Real Madrid.

And even with the spotlight slightly dimmed back in the league the 18 year old is still scoring some utter worldies:

That one touch lay-off from the initial long ball is a thing of beauty and the composure to cut inside and beat the keeper is one of a player much older than 18!

And as if that wasn't Henryesque enough this piece of skill and turn of pace was incredibly reminiscent of the former Barcelona forward:

The youngster now has 19 goals for the season after scoring a second goal in Monaco's game against Caen today.

Right now everything Mbappe touches turns to gold and whilst he might not be Monaco's only impressive young talent he could very well be the one to go for a hell of a lot of money in the summer.
