Galtier admits PSG can’t rely only on Mbappe to save them from bad results

Kylian Mbappe scored a brace to save PSG from yet another defeat against Lille but Galtier admits he cannot be their only savior.

PSG came from behind to win the match 4-3 against Lille with the help of a brace from

Kylian Mbappe

. The Frenchman has helped PSG out of a few tough spots this season but Galtier’s men suffered three consecutive defeats before the Lille game.

This has led to Galtier, who is under a lot of pressure to get results, claiming that Mbappe couldn’t be their only savior when games are not going their way.

"Everyone is concerned,"

Galtier told reporters at his pre-match news conference. 

"We think that players move on from a defeat in five minutes, but that's not true.

"We will have to win duels to get out of the Marseille pressure. We will have to have more runs in behind, which we lacked during the Coupe de France match. With Kylian, there will be.

"But it's not just him who should help us. He is capable of making a difference, but other players will have to project themselves more freely and with more determination to beat Marseille."

Marseille boss Igor Tudor claimed that


’s squad of players make them the favorites in every game. However, Galtier refuted Tudor’s claims, believing that his players must improve upon their current form to be the favorites.

"I cannot say that Marseille are favourites,"

Galtier explained.

"Neither are we. 

"For this status as favourites, a different dynamic would have been needed. But the end of the match against Bayern and against Lille gives us a lot of hope.

"We will have to have a very high level of play on a regular basis to beat Marseille, who are in good form and who will be pushed by their fans. We will have to be better than what we have shown in recent weeks."

Marseille and PSG are set to clash on Saturday, which could prove vital in the title race. Marseille are only 5 points away from the league leaders PSG.

Asked whether his men want to take revenge on how Marseille knocked them out of the Coupe de France, Galtier answered:

"There is no revenge,"

"There is a lot of pride in this team, obviously that will be important for Sunday evening.

"It's an important match. They are two teams that are very close in terms of the championship with very few points apart.

"Is this decisive for the title? I don't think so."
