Kylian Mbappe struck a hat - trick for hosts Monaco as they run out winners against Rennes. Monaco , who have netted 53 goals in 17 league games and 76 in 28 matches overall, dismantled Rennes even without star forward Radamel Falcao and strike partner Valere Germain.

The first league hat - trick for Kylian Mbappe in his career and a brace from Falcao guided the Principality club back to the summit of the Ligue 1 table with a three point gap.

Jemerson also scored in a comprehensive victory for the principality side that made it two wins from two after they started the campaign by beating Toulouse 3-2 last weekend.

It was also their 14th consecutive league win, equalling the record set by Bordeaux in 2009.

They join Lyon, Marseille and Saint-Etienne on maximum points before Paris Saint-Germain -- with Neymar poised to make his debut -- visit Guingamp later (1900 GMT).

But it was the absence of Mbappe that will likely prove the biggest talking point of Monaco's trip to Burgundy.

The 18-year-old France forward was one of the stars of Monaco's title triumph and run to the Champions League semi-finals last season.

However, he is said to be determined to leave the principality before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month, with Real Madrid keen but PSG his preferred destination. His club want 180 million euros ($213 million, £164 million) if they are to sell.

Mbappe hat - trick and Falcao double restore Monaco ' s Ligue 1 lead.

Mbappe was in the Monaco squad at the Stade Gaston Gerard but did not make it off the bench as coach Leonardo Jardim gave a debut to 21-year-old winger Adama Diakhaby, a 10 million-euro signing from Rennes.

Without Mbappe, Monaco went ahead inside three minutes as Kamil Glik headed down a corner and Falcao helped the ball towards goal, with goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet getting a touch but unable to stop it from crossing the line.

Brazil centre-back Jemerson then produced a remarkable overhead-kick finish from another corner to double Monaco's lead and Diakhaby fed Falcao for a shot that took a slight deflection on its way in to make it 3-0 in the 37th minute.

Wesley Said pulled one back for Dijon before the break but Colombian star Falcao headed home another corner shortly after the restart to complete a fine victory for the away side.

On a miserable day for Bielsa and his side, Lille lost Brazilian recruit Thiago Mendes and full-back Kevin Malcuit to injury in the first 18 minutes at the Stade de la Meinau.

Bielsa then opted to make another substitution before the interval, so when goalkeeper Mike Maignan was shown a straight red card just after the hour mark for throwing the ball at Benjamin Corgnet, Lille were in trouble.

Unable to send on substitute goalkeeper Herve Koffi, Lille were instead forced to hand the gloves to striker Nicolas De Preville.

He promptly denied Idriss Saadi when the Strasbourg player found himself clean through, but the home side had been on top throughout and they got the breakthrough they deserved in the 74th minute through Jonas Martin.

De Preville had had enough of his stint in goal and he opted to give the gloves to captain Ibrahim Amadou for the closing stages.

He was beaten twice in the last 10 minutes, first from a Dimitri Lienard penalty and then from Jeremy Grimm's long-range strike as Strasbourg won a top-flight game for the first time in more than nine years.
