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

Inter Milan turn in assured display to hand Chelsea another pre-season reversal Inter Milan continued their revival under new coach Luciano Spalletti with an assured display in a 2-1 victory over English champions Chelsea to win the International Champions Cup Singapore tournament yesterday.

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

"With Perisic past year, we won nothing", said Spalletti.

The Belgian worldwide has been in fine form for Chelsea in pre-season as he hopes to play his way into Antonio Conte's plans for the Premier League season.

With time fast running out, Michy Batshuayi thought he had restored parity for Chelsea but his goal was disallowed for offside.

"We want to continue along this road and do well in the league to return to the Champions League".

Perisic has also been the subject of strong transfer speculation, with Manchester United reportedly at the front of the queue for the Croatia global.

"It's hard for the team and playing against Chelsea and Bayern is not easy", the Italian said. Will we see him lining up against Chelsea in the Premier League next season?

Perisic scored after a beauty of a run but then a stunning own goal by Kondogbia gave Chelsea the hope in the final 15 minutes but it was not enough to get them a draw.

Despite falling behind just prior to the interval, Chelsea returned for the second half knowing they were still in the fixture, particularly given the fact Morata had shown so much promise for his new team in attack.

The moment of the match came in the 74th-minute when Kondogbia looked to pass back to his goalkeeper from midway inside his own half, only to lob Daniele Padelli with an inch-perfect "shot" that nestled in the back of the net.
