An uneventful first half came to life in added time when Cesar Azpilicueta bundled into Stevan Jovetic in the box and conceded a penalty.

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

However, his careless backpass looped over Padelli's head and found the back of the night, much to his own embarrassment, and the Chelsea players were left stunned with how they had been thrown a freakish lifeline.

After Inter's 2-1 win, Spalletti rubbished the recent rumours, stating: 'Absolutely not, he is irreplaceable in that role, even if this transfer market has proven to be unpredictable'. Courtois saved to his left, but Inter reacted fastest to the rebound as Jovetic cleaned up.

Morata made a low key start to his career at Chelsea with his first start for the Blues. If it were an attacker, they would be praised for one of the goals of the summer.

Despite this, the Croatian did not look particularly interested in tracking back, something that will certainly have to change if he joins Jose Mourinho's team.

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. Two years ago the team ended the league in 10th place and we want to try to avoid this.

He looked composed when defending one-on-one and showed off his ability to accurately find teammates with cross-field passes.

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.
