Kylian Mbappe outshining Erling Haaland, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and has been likened to Thierry Henry thanks to Champions League goal exploits and PSG form, 8 April 2021, 12:41
Kylian Mbappe just continues to get better and better. At the tender age of just 22 he has already recorded some mightily impressive stats and broken some elite records... Kylian Mbappe has already got a vast amount of domestic silverware to his name, while he became a World Cup winner at just the age of 19.

Kylian Mbappe is the definition of a generational talent.

As Erling Haaland was kept quiet by Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe surpassed Thierry Henry's Champions League knockout stage goals record on Wednesday night.

And his two goals came against one of the most formidable teams in Europe, as PSG beat Bayern Munich 3-2.

Mbappe - at the age of 22 and 80 days - also recently overtook Lionel Messi to become the youngest player to score 25 goals in Europe's premier club competition.

Ronaldo, who has a record 134 Champions League goals to his name, did not score at all before his 21st birthday and took 27 games to break his duck in the competition proper.

And then there's his domestic form, with Mbappe becoming the youngest player to reach 100 goals in Ligue 1 following a brace against Lyon last month.

Mbappe, evidently, has plenty of reasons to smile, so it begs the question is there anything the man can't do?

Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy were both in agreement on The Sports Bar on talkSPORT, explaining they'd choose Mbappe over his other Golden Shoe rivals.

"I would rather have him than Kane, Haaland and Lewandowski," Goldstein told the nation.

Mbappe's incredible stats in numbers

100 - Mbappe became the youngest player to reach that milestone in France's top flight after netting a brace against Lyon last month

42 - Mbappe has 42 goal involvements in just 43 Champions League appearances (27 goals and 15 assists)

13 - Goals in the Champions League knockout stages, surpassing Thierry Henry's total of 12.

8 - Kylian Mbappé has scored eight goals in this season's UEFA Champions League, the joint-most by a French player in a single campaign in the competition, moving level with Wissam Ben Yedder in 2017-18 and David Trezeguet in 2001-02.

8 - Mbappe also has the joint-most tally of goals scored by a French player in a single Champions League season.

5 - First player to score a total of five away goals in the round of 16 and quarter-final phase of the Champions League in the same season.

8 - Goals in as many appearances for the Ligue 1 giants in the Champions League this season.

"He's a beast, his finishing is incredible, defenders bounce off him… what a player he is."

Cundy said in response: "People talk about Neymar, but for me [Mbappe] is miles ahead. He's just an awesome player."

Meanwhile, former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara sees striking similarities between Mbappe and Arsenal icon Henry.

"Watching him play, he's unbelievable. He just makes things happen," O'Hara said.

"When he gets it he just runs at the goal. He's got great feet, he reminds me a lot of Thierry Henry the way he plays.

"He drifts into wide areas, gets the ball and then he goes at the goal. He's direct and he's so quick as well."
