Star man Mbappe, 20, limped off with a physio and was replaced by 17-year-old defender Arthur Zagre.

On a mixed night for manager Thomas Tuchel, the German boss also saw Edinson Cavani and Abdou Diallo forced off.

Cavani went off just 14 minutes into the match with a groin problem.

His replacement, Stoke flop Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, turned out to be the hero, scoring two goals – including an incredible solo effort where he beat five players.

Diallo was taken off just before half-time, after an aerial duel.

Toulouse held out for 50 minutes before Choupo-Moting’s goal, only his fourth for the club.

Five minutes later Mathieu Gonclaves scored an own goal and the floodgates opened, Choupo-Moting scoring another before Marquinhos scored late on.

PSG fans will be desperate for good news about Mbappe and Cavani, especially with Brazilian superstar Neymar being left out again as he continues to try and force his way out of the club.
