Inter Milan pipped English champions, Chelsea, 2-1 in their International Champions Cup finale in Singapore, to end the Blue’s pre-season tour on a losing note.
Both teams named a strong starting XI, with new boy Alvaro Morata starting his first game in Chelsea colours, and Man United’s target Ivan Perisic also making the cut.
Stevan Jovetić opened the scoring from the spot on the stroke of half time after Azpilicueta was controversially penalised for a soft push on Jovetic.
