Paris Saint-Germain head coach Mauricio Pochettino insisted he is not concerned by the lack of goals from his forwards after the Ligue 1 leaders beat Montpellier 2-0 on Saturday.
PSG preserved their perfect start to the season, Pochettino’s men making it eight wins from eight league matches thanks to goals from Idrissa Gueye and Julian Draxler.
In the continued absence of superstar Lionel Messi (knee), Kylian Mbappe and Neymar wasted chances as midfielder Gueye and winger Draxler stepped up at the Parc des Princes.
Mbappe has failed to net his last 13 shots in Ligue 1, his longest drought from shots in the top flight since August-September 2019 (16 shots).
“We created a lot of opportunities today, but they didn’t score them. We leave that aside,” Pochettino told reporters. “The quality we have in our team and especially with our attacking players, it’s only a matter of time before they score.
“I have no doubt that they will score a lot of goals this season. Tonight, we didn’t score more than two goals, that is true.”
