  • Perisic helps Inter beat Chelsea

The Belgian global 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.

Alvaro Morata started his first game for the Blues following his £60m move from Real Madrid and he looked lively throughout despite not scoring.

A deflected Willian effort narrowly cleared the crossbar after 27 minutes and, with Chelsea piling on the pressure, Padelli nearly controlled a back-pass into his own net.

Substitute Joao Mario could have made it three on the hour when Perisic unselfishly teed him up, but Courtois saved with his legs before Kondogbia's memorable impact.

And the Chelsea striker was less than impressed about the decision.

Chelsea will face Arsenal in the Community Shield on August 6, and begin their Premier League title defence against Burnley August 12 at Stamford Bridge.

We will 'destroy' MS-13 gang
The venue is close to where MS-13 has committed a string of gruesome murders, including April's massacre of four young men. She'll also call on him to bring back funding for community programs to support kids and for public schools.

Eden Hazard and Pedro are injured and that has forced Antonio Conte to find a new left winger for the team.

Manchester United target Ivan Perisic doubled the Italians lead with an angled drive from the left.

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.

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.

It was a moment Kondogbia will want to forget - but there will be little chance of that: this own goal will be replayed in blooper reels for years to come.
