Kylian Mbappe had to be defended by Neymar, after winding up Metz goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja, following PSG's very late winner against Metz.
Things aren't quite as easy for PSG at the moment, even if they have gone to the top of Ligue 1 by seven points already, having scored 20 goals in just seven games.
Last week they drew their opening Champions League game of the campaign to Club Brugge, even through all three of their Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi trio started.
There was tension between Messi and Mauricio Pochettino at the weekend, as the French giants needed a 93rd minute winner against Lyon, and on Wednesday they needed an even later goal.
Achraf Hakimi scored in the 95th minute to earn all three points in a 2-1 win over Metz, but things didn't end with the full backs goal.
Mbappe said something to home keeper Oukidja that clearly wound him up enough to chase the World Cup winning forward, only for Neymar to defend his teammate and shove the 33-year-old shot stopper to the ground.
I get it - last second wins are great. But this is against the bottom team, who have no wins all season - yet Mbappe still feels the need to go and insult the keeper, who Neymar them barges over.— Jeremy Smith (@jeremysmith98) September 22, 2021
Yet again, PSG's big names showing that money doesn't buy class. https://t.co/hNduKK2I5D

ABSOLUTE SCENES!! 😱— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) September 22, 2021
1-1 at 90 minutes 🤝
90+1, Metz are handed two red cards, to their captain and their manager 🟥🟥
90+3, No foul called on Kimpembe... 👀
90+4, PSG play on and Hakimi slots home the winner! 😲 pic.twitter.com/Z8OG3dMabT
Hakimi, who was signed from Inter Milan in the summer, had opened the scoring after just five minutes for Pochettino's side and, like against Brugge, most would have expected them to then run away with the game.
However, Ligue 1's bottom side stuck in the game and were level before half time, when Boubakar Kouyate headed home from a corner in the 39th minute.
The hosts then looked on course for a brilliant point, before captain Dylan Bronn was sent off for a second yellow card, after he kicked the ball away to slow down play.
Metz' manager Frederic Antonetti's protests to the decision earned him a sending off too and he would have only been even more incensed by the late winner against his side, coming in the extra added time for the delay after the red cards.
Oukidja continued to show his annoyance at what was said after the full time whistle, with the PSG players still celebrating.
Alexandre Oukidja was proper onto Mbappe when PSG were celebrating and after the match was over 😩😭😭 pic.twitter.com/alQIdiLQMK— 🇨🇩🇸🇱 (@F1avs) September 22, 2021
It may not have been as easy as they'd have expected but PSG are still winning and already the title looks like it could be heading back to the Parc des Princes.
