Leicester City loan Islam Slimani is proving his worth scoring both goals for Monaco, the first 11 minutes in, the second at the 40 minute mark. Unfortunately his efforts weren’t enough to secure a Monaco win, but the 31-year-old striker is a breath of fresh air for the struggling team.

He becomes the second Red and Whites player to get at least three goals in his first two French top-flight games in over 50 seasons.

In other AS Monaco news, Guillermo Maripan has been signed adding some heavy artillery to the team’s defence. The 25-year-old Chilean International was acquired for €15 million, and there are high hopes he will be a powerhouse addition to the squad.
