Jovetic stars before Kondogbia's weird own goal

Jovetic stars before Kondogbia's weird own goal

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte handed new signing Alvaro Morata his debut against Inter Milan in the pre-season friendly in Singapore on Saturday.

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.

Jovetic gave Inter the lead in first-half injury-time, scoring on the rebound after Thibaut Courtois saved his initial effort from a controversial penalty.

It is quite possibly the best own goal ever seen.

Morata made a low key start to his career at Chelsea with his first start for the Blues.

Batshuayi thought he had levelled in the closing minutes - only for his goal to be chalked off for a questionable offside flag.




Things are looking up for Inter in a major way under the tutelage of Spalletti, meanwhile, as they have beaten Lyon, Bayern and the Blues in the space of five days and topped the ICC's Singapore table as a result.

There are still two weeks remaining before Chelsea begin their Premier League title defence at home to Burnley on the opening weekend of the 2017/18 season and Conte will be thankful for that, given the work he will want to do with his defence on the training ground following their performance against Inter Milan.

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

And Spalletti bristled when he was once again questioned about the future of Ivan Perisic, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United throughout the transfer window.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was sympathetic: "It can happen, can happen - this is football".

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.
