Angers 0 -5 Paris Saint-Germain: Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe hit doubles as Ligue 1 leaders run riot without crock Neymar

Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe fired doubles as Paris Saint-Germain roared seven points clear in Ligue 1 without Neymar.  

Unbeaten PSG found Angers management so easy as they walloped their mid-table hosts despite missing four regulars. 

Germany midfielder Julian Draxler dinked the big-spenders' second goal as they dictated in style from start to finish.

And PSG comfortably survived their thrilling front three becoming just a dynamic double act as Neymar was never missed.

The £198million Brazil striker is recovering from a thigh strain before next week's international break.

But PSG flowed and flourished just as well without him.

Right-back Dani Alves tormented Angers throughout, teeing up a clinical fifth-minute opener for Mbappe and Draxler's clever finish nine minutes later.

Mbappe then showed the swagger befitting PSG'S dominance with a backheel that enabled Uruguay hero Cavani to thump his 100th Ligue 1 goal on the half-hour.

And although the powerful Parisians were less emphatic after the interval, more goals always seemed likely.

Cavani hit the fourth on the hour and Mbappe rounded off a PSG parade with six minutes left.

World record buy Neymar was joined on the sidelines by Argentina's former Manchester United wideman Angel Di Maria, Brazil defender Marquinhos and Italy anchor-midfielder Thiago Motta.

But their absence merely confirmed how awesome PSG squad's has become.

Neymar, though, will be vital for the later stages of the Champions League.

The ex-Santos hero bagged seven goals in his first seven league games for PSG following his summer switch from Barcelona.

And he has also netted four times in four Champions League group matches.
