While Chelsea's defensive errors will trouble Conte and Perisic's impressive display will leave Manchester United fans considering what role he could play at Old Trafford next season, this match will ultimately be remembered for Geoffrey Kondogbia's outrageous own goal.

The former Roma coach led the side to friendly wins over Bayern Munich and Chelsea in Singapore, following a victory over Lyon in China last week, and admitted he was amazed at how quickly his squad had adapted to his methods.

Morata made his first start for the Premier League champions today but struggled to impress against Inter.

Minutes later N'Golo Kante saw his shot blocked after good play from Marcos Alonso and new signing Alvaro Morata.

That approach went against the west Londoners, however, when Cesar Azpilicueta received a harsh-looking penalty for a foul on Jovetic on the brink of half-time, with the referee dismissing Chelsea's protests. Although Courtois saved his penalty, the Montenegrin blasted home the rebound. Will we see him lining up against Chelsea in the Premier League next season? After Batshuayi was denied an equaliser for offside, a desperate Inter managed to cling on for their third consecutive win of their Asia tour.

Inter had the first chance of the game early on but Thibaut Courtois made a save before Gary Cahill blocked a follow-up effort.

Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has dismissed rumours linking Italy winger Antonio Candreva with a move to Chelsea. But the former worldwide midfielder also quickly won a reputation for displaying his full range of emotions on the sidelines, including jumping into the arms of Chelsea fans to celebrate goals. If the training sessions are done with quality and effort, then I am confident going into every game. I must also say there were careless mistakes in the last half an hour of the game. "I try to transfer all my passion into my work".

"I do not know anything [about Matic]", Conte said.
