Damning Kylian Mbappe graphic proves he's giving Lionel Messi and Neymar zero help, it's eye-opening

A graphic of Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar's goals and assist at Paris Saint-Germain this season is causing huge controversy online.

'MNM' are one of the deadliest trios in world football and all three have been outrageous in the opening weeks of the new campaign.

Despite that, some are unhappy with Mbappe and believe he's being 'greedy' on the pitch after failing to register a single assist so far this term.

That's in comparison to his fellow forwards who have registered eight assists each in all competitions.

In fact, Messi has set up Mbappe five times and Neymar three times, while the Brazil international has assisted Mbappe three times and Messi twice.

Mbappe is the one who plays centrally for PSG and it's understandable he'll be tasked with scoring the most goals.

That hasn't stopped fans on social media expressing their fury however and they think the 23-year-old needs to be more of a team player.

One person tweeted: "This is crazy."

Another added: "Mbappe ruining what could’ve been a great trio."

Someone said: "There could be an issue here."

While a fourth put. "People and media are forcing it to be a trio like Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar. It could be, but it isn't."

It's worth mentioning Mbappe was Ligue 1's top assister in 21/22, managing to register a whopping 17 in 35 games. He could just be having a slow start.

Neymar and Messi combined for the only goal in PSG's 1-0 victory over Lyon on Sunday evening.

After drifting through the Lyon defence, Neymar poked the ball through to Messi who fired a first-time effort past Anthony Lopes.

PSG manager Christophe Galtier opted to substitute Neymar in the 86th minute and he was visibly frustrated after taking a place on the bench.

Galtier didn't make much of it however and went on to shower his winger with praise.

He told Prime Video per Goal: "In these matches, the great players have to stand out like Ney and Messi tonight who were very good. Neymar has worked a lot for the team.

"He came out, in my opinion, a little flushed and a little angry but that's normal. He has impeccable behaviour."
