Chelsea lost their last pre-season game against Inter Milan when both sides clashed in Singapore on Saturday.

The Blues lost 2-1 to the Italian side. StevanJovetic was fouled by Cesar Azpilicueta so the ref pointed to the spot. Jovetic penalty kick was saved by Chelsea first choice stopper Thibaut Courtois but the forward netted the rebound.

GeofrreyKondogbia scored an own goal to restore parity but the Premier League champs could not build on it to get the equalizer. They could not even maintain the draw as Inter got another goal. Alvaro Morata played closer together with MichyBatshuayi – who has enjoyed a good pre-season run – but they could not break the resolute Inter side.

Jovetic and Manchester United target Ivan Perisic combined for the second goal as the Croatia international sent his shot low from a tight angle to beat Courtois. Perisic would have added or setup another but Courtois intercepted his combination with Portugal international Joao Mario.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte would not be too pleased with the result as they are to face Arsenal next week in the Community Shield game, being winners of the league vs. winners of the FA Cup. Batshuayi leveled proceedings but it was ruled offside but replays showed his close range effort after latching onto a Cesc Fabregas pass was actually onside.

Conte has decried wanting a better fate compared to that of Jose Mourinho and Clauido Ranieri after their league win. There is anxiety and uncertainty at Stamford Bridge ahead of their league title defense. Conte hopes the team calms down and play their normal game that saw them soar onto a title win after a shaky start last season.
