Inter Milan Cruise Past Chelsea 2-1 to Win 2017 Singapore ICC

Inter Milan beat reigning Premier League champions 2-1 in the International Champions Cup in Singapore on Saturday, despite being given a route back into the game thanks to a weird own goal from Geoffrey Kondogbia.

As for the game against Chelsea, Spalletti said: "We must have more personality when we have the ball possession".

Inter got ahead some minutes before the whistle went off for the first half, when Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois stretched his frame to keep out Stevan Jovetic's spot-kick but the rebound fell kindly for the Inter player to stab home.

Here, we take a look at the talking points from the game - including the outrageous own goal Geoffrey Kondogbia scored for Chelsea...

Chelsea had begun the game with the same five-man defence which looked so well organised and secure en route to the club's Premier League title win last season but the concerns continued throughout the first 45 minutes before Inter made the breakthrough in stoppage time, thanks to a controversial penalty call.

What could Alvaro Morata bring to fantasy football?

It's the 2nd loss in a row for Chelsea in pre-season and Antonio Conte is not a happy man.

The fixture was an uphill battle for Chelsea from that point on, and it became increasingly hard to break down Spalletti's Nerazzurri, who appear to have formed a habit of being stubborn and stingier under their new boss.

And Spalletti bristled when he was once again questioned about the future of Ivan Perisic, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United throughout the transfer window.
