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

Inter had already beaten Lyon and Bayern Munich without conceding a goal in the tournament and Luciano Spalletti's men made it three out of three in humid conditions on Saturday.

The Blues have now conceded five times in two pre-season friendlies. It seems like he underestimated his own strength, and so did the goalkeeper.

Batshuayi wasn't able to offer that incision either.

Luiz then saw a free header blocked by the body of Milan Skriniar, but Inter were ahead late in the half.

The Montenegro global had the ball in the net again within a minute of the restart, turning home another rebound after Courtois denied Marcelo Brozovic, although the offside flag denied him.

Chelsea ready for new season?


Against Inter, the two looked like they had been playing together for a lot longer than one game.

USA officials said the "conditions had been met", but Iran is "unquestionably in default of the spirit" of the agreement. There has been speculation that Tehran has kept close cooperation with Pyongyang over its missile and nuclear programs.

Conte will also be pleased to see the return of injured duo Eden Hazard and Pedro to his first-team squad. "Today he tried to do his best but for sure he has to improve".

It has been reported in Italy that Chelsea have made an offer in the past 24 hours for the Italy worldwide.

Manchester United have been in negotiations over the 28-year-old but have yet to match the £48m asking price.

There was more poor officiating after the break as Jovetic had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside, but Inter got their second as Perisic's fierce effort from the left of the penalty area found the bottom corner past Courtois.

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.

That was until Kondogbia handed the Premier League champions a lifeline in truly freaky fashion, his attempted back-pass soaring over the stranded Padelli and into the top-left corner of the net.
