Andreas Cornelius came off the bench to strike twice in the second half and deliver a shock victory for the Danes at the Stade de France.

Karim Benzema, who lifted the Champions League trophy with Real Madrid at the same venue last Saturday, looked like he was headed for another stellar night as he had an early shot smothered and then a goal ruled out for offside.

His strike partner Kylian Mbappe departed at half-time after picking up an injury but Benzema was undeterred, cutting in from the right and playing a one-two with Christopher Nkunku before dribbling past another couple of Danish defenders and firing home in the 51st minute.

Aubameyang clear the air concerning his future at Barcelona

Aubameyang clear the air concerning his future at Barcelona amid Chelsea interest

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has clarified that he needs to remain at Barcelona this summer, as indicated by reports.

The 33-year-old has been intensely connected with a move to Chelsea with Thomas Tuchel quick to reinforce his forward line before the transfer window closes on September 1.

Aubameyang has been referenced as a potential target, after he scored 68 Premier League goals for Arsenal in his four-year spell at the Emirates Stadium.

According to Toni Juanmartí, Barcelona have rejected a €14million bid from Chelsea for the experienced forward. The Catalan giants want €20m for the Gabon international, who only joined the club in January on a free transfer after Arsenal terminated his contract.

However, it is understood Aubameyang does not want to leave Barcelona and is keen to fight for his place following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. Mundo Deportivo report that Aubameyang is happy in Catalonia and does not see his long-term future away from the club.

This is despite reportedly being told that he will have a ‘secondary’ role at Barcelona this season, with Lewandowski, Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele and Ferran Torres all ahead of him in the pecking order. Chelsea are prepared to make him their main man up front after Romelu Lukaku re-joined Inter Milan on loan.

Barcelona are keen to sell Aubameyang as they see it as a way to free up funds to finance the proposed signing of Bernardo Silva from Manchester City. Xavi Hernandez considers the Portuguese international as a priority and believes he would give his squad an even greater leap in quality.

Jamie Carragher has cautioned Antonio Conte he should address Tottenham’s embarrassing record at Stamford Bridge assuming that they are to become serious Premier League competitors.

Assumptions are high for Spurs this season, with a solid completion last season to get Champions League football upheld by a bustling summer of move action. Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Ivan Perisic are among those to have arrived in north London.

Conte’s side came from behind to beat Southampton 4-1 in their opening match of the season, and they face an early test of their credentials with a trip to face Chelsea on Sunday.

Tottenham have won just once at Stamford Bridge since the inaugural Premier League season in 1992. That came in 2018, when Dele Alli scored twice in a 3-1 win, and Conte was in the home dugout as Chelsea boss.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash, Carragher hit out at Spurs’ record at the ground, though he believes Conte could be the man to change it after the Italian led his side to draw at Anfield and victory away to Manchester City last season.

“I think we’ll see a lot of what Spurs are about today,” Carragher said.

“You’ve mentioned how many times they’ve won [at Stamford Bridge]. It’s embarrassing – two top teams, in London, to come here and only win once in the Premier League era.

“That’s what Antonio Conte has to change. If you look at the record last season against Liverpool and Manchester City, he got really big results.”
