Mawell Cornet nearly scored a freak equaliser when he deflected Thiago Silva's clearance onto the woodwork but, having hit the upright himself, Mbappe finally had his goal after the hour - his low strike rattling in off the inside of each post.
Mbappe won the best young player award at the World Cup in Russian Federation where he was the first teenager to score in a final since Pele in 1958. Because for a striker, as long as opportunities are created for me, everything is fine.
The only stain on his record so far this year is a red card - the second of his PSG career - he received during injury time on September 1 in a 4-2 win at Nimes, which resulted in a three-game ban.
Lyon's Lucas Tousart was also given his marching order for a second bookable offence after committing a foul on Mbappe.
"We got the record and I will put my man of the match award in my trophy cabinet. I hope it will continue like that for several years because football will thank him", said Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona to flee from the shadow of Lionel Messi but could now be eclipsed by Mbappe. "I insist we talk about the collective, we will have time to talk about me, Neymar".
Nantes's new coach Vahid Halilhodzic had an very bad debut at Bordeaux as his side conceded twice in the first eight minutes on the way to a 3-0 defeat.
"When we make the effort for each other, it makes the difference".
Brazilian Neymar converted a penalty to give PSG a ninth-minute lead but the game took a dramatic turn when the hosts had Presnel Kimpembe sent off in the 32nd minute for a unsafe studs-up tackle on Tanguy Ndombele.
"My teammates have supported me a lot". It was really wonderful.
PSG pulled off the Ligue 1 shutout on Sunday at the Parc des Princes in Paris. Mbappe has taken his total goal scoring tally to 8 in the league, this season.
"We came with good intentions, but then the penalty cuts our legs a little", Lopes said. I am happy to have also played a great match, more in the second half.
