Obscene numbers.

This is the same man who couldn’t hit a yogurt with a spoon at either Man United or Chelsea.

Metz’s 21-year-old stopper Thomas Didillon. Get that man a medal.

Didillon kept Falcao’s shot out in the 31st minute only for El Tigre to score what turned out to be a winner in the 78th minute.

Unlucky son.

Falcao already has a hat-trick and three doubles to his name in just eight Ligue 1 games.

It’s the type of form that shows the 31-year-old is truly over knee injuries that blighted his time in Britain.

PSG have won all but one of their league games this season, drawing once, whereas Monaco were hammered 4-0 by Nice in September.

Up next on Falcao’s hit list is Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, who will be training with Cristiano Ronaldo this week after being called up to the Portugal squad.

Better get practising, Anthony.
