Thierry Henry saw his depleted Monaco squad sustain more injury problems in a crushing 4-0 home Ligue 1 loss to leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Edinson Cavani hit a hat-trick on his return to the Paris Saint-Germain team as the Ligue 1 champions marched on with a 4-0 demolition of Thierry Henry's injury-hit Monaco.

Cavani missed PSG's last two Ligue 1 wins due to a thigh injury and he was on the bench for a midweek Champions League draw against his old club Napoli.

But the striker was back in the PSG side at Stade Louis II on Sunday, scoring a trio of close-range finishes as Thomas Tuchel's men extended their perfect league record to 13 wins.

Neymar added a fourth from the penalty spot and PSG's lead atop the table already stands at 13 points while Monaco are in the mire, with Henry's side only off the bottom on goal difference.

An extraordinary opening 11 minutes saw Cavani score twice with both goals initially ruled out for offside, only to then be awarded after VAR was consulted.

Neymar's cross-shot was turned in at the back post by Cavani for the opener and the Uruguay striker was soon enjoying more delayed celebrations thanks to the video replay system.

Moussa Diaby beat goalkeeper Diego Benaglio to a long Neymar pass, with Cavani on hand to slot into the gaping net.

VAR was needed again before the break when Julian Draxler swapped passes with Christopher Nkunku before beating Benaglio, this time the referral system disallowing the goal for offside.

Cavani grabbed his hat-trick in the 53rd minute, tapping in a Diaby cross to take his tally to eight Ligue 1 goals this season after Adrien Rabiot's throughball had split the Monaco defence.

Djibril Sidibe then brought down former Monaco team-mate Kylian Mbappe in the box, allowing Neymar to roll home a penalty to add his name to the scoresheet.
Mbappe saw a late fifth ruled out for offside after yet another VAR review but the scoreline already reflected PSG's total dominance in a complete mismatch.
