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

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

Goals from Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic had put Inter into a commanding lead before a freaky Geoffrey Kondogbia own goal gave Chelsea hope of a recovery, and Spalletti believes his players need to focus on keeping intensity levels high.

In contrast, Chelsea's big-money signing Alvaro Morata was quiet on his first start since moving from Real Madrid last week and made little impact before being substituted in the 64th minute. Spalletti rested Martins Eder, who scored both goals in the victory over Bayern, and gave former Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic the central striking role in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Inter was awarded a penalty shortly before the interval after Cesar Azpilicueta was adjudged to have fouled Jovetic, although the defender won the ball with his initial challenge. Although Courtois saved his penalty, the Montenegrin blasted home the rebound.

In the 53rd minute, Inter went 2-0 up thanks to Manchester United target Perisic's smart angled-finish.

"In that role we can not replace him, even if this market is unpredictable".

Geoffrey Kondogbia might have some explaining to do after scoring possibly the greatest own goal of all time against Chelsea on Saturday. After Batshuayi was denied an equaliser for offside, a desperate Inter managed to cling on for their third consecutive win of their Asia tour.

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

Inter star Antonio Candreva is being linked with a move to Chelsea but Inter boss Luciano Spalletti has claimed no offers have been made so far. If the training sessions are done with quality and effort, then I am confident going into every game.

"I feel they have made a lot of progress since we started working together but I also have to say that there were still a few careless mistakes today after we had gone 2-0 ahead", the 58-year-old Italian added.

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