    Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a goalscoring start to 2014 at the Parc des Princes, tucking home a penalty after Marco Verratti drew a foul from Chaker Alhadhur in the box.

    In the second half, he teed up Edinson Cavani up for a close-range finish to make it 4-0 to Paris Saint-Germain, then swept home a firm finish to make it five.

    He was firmly involved in the buildup play throughout and contributed to the overall dominance.

    Radamel Falcao put together another disappointing 90 minutes for Monaco during their 2-0 victory over Toulouse on Sunday afternoon.

    The Colombian missed three good chances before being substituted off with 20 minutes to spare, and that makes it just three strikes from his last 12 appearances in all competitions.

    Les Monegasques got by thanks to strikes from Layvin Kurzawa (again) and substitute Lucas Ocampos.

Edinson Cavani

    Edinson Cavani was extremely quiet in the first half of Paris Saint-Germain's 5-0 victory over Toulouse, but he sparked into life during the second period.

    Much of the play was congested in the centre of the park initially, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic heavily involved, but as PSG opened out, so did the Uruguayan's chances.

    He took five shots and scored just once after being teed up by Ibra, but his profligacy didn't matter.
