The 23-year-old missed a couple of gilt-edged opportunities in the home draw with Stoke on Sunday as Jose Mourinho's side were left frustrated. And France boss Deschamps has urged patience at the start of the international break…

All eyes on Zlatan but Blanc is the real hero at PSG

 The title came in the most emphatic way. A 9-0 away win against the cellar-dwellers who were reduced to 10 men in the second half. Paris Saint-Germain's victory against Troyes gave the French side their fourth consecutive Ligue 1 crown with eight games to spare.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his seasonal tally to 35 goals (27 in Le Championnat) and the issue…
