Cavani Hits Hat-Trick Against Monaco as Silva Scores in Manchester Derby

Edinson Cavani had not found the back of the net in any competition since October 3, but on Sunday it took him just three minutes and 25 seconds to tap home Neymar's off-target effort from close range.

The goal was initially ruled out for offside but was correctly overturned by VAR. So too was his second goal 10 minutes later, when he stretched to convert Moussa Diaby's ball.

The Uruguayan completed his hat-trick eight minutes into the second half, with Diaby again the provider, per French football writer Rich Allen:

Cavani hat trick. I have no idea if Sidibe even cares at right back any more. He and Grandsir fail to pick up Diaby who crosses for Cavani to tap in. Cumulative distance on that hat trick must be about 20 yards!! Absolute poacher! 0-3 #ASMPSG

Neymar rounded out the scoring from the penalty spot as PSG won their 13th consecutive Ligue 1 match to maintain their perfect start to the season.

Cavani's 90-rated card boasts a shooting attribute of 88, making him one of FIFA 19's elite marksmen.

As for David Silva, he pulled the strings for City as they put in a superb performance against United, having opened the scoring himself after 12 minutes.

The Spaniard set Raheem Sterling away on the left before getting on the end of Bernardo Silva's cutback.

With 88 passing and 92 dribbling, players looking for a creative playmaker to dictate the tempo for their sides need look no further than Silva and his new 90-rated card, though Reus' 87-rated card is superb, too.

The German's second TOTW inclusion of the season bumps his shooting to 89, and with 88 dribbling, 87 pace and 85 passing to go with it, he's a multi-faceted threat in the No. 10 role.
