Geoffrey Kondogbia scores the GREATEST own goal of all time against Chelsea

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea finished their pre-season tour of China and Singapore with a 2-1 International Champions Cup defeat to Inter Milan on Saturday - and their final fixture in the Far East will have given boss Antonio Conte plenty to contemplate. Stefan Jovetic saw his spot-kick save but was alert enough to score from the rebound.

The Croatian winger played a central role and scored the Serie A side's second goal in the 53rd minute, latching on to a pass from Jovetic before applying a smart finish.

Chelsea had begun the game with the same five-man defence which looked so well organised and secure en route to the club's Premier League title win last season but the concerns continued throughout the first 45 minutes before Inter made the breakthrough in stoppage time, thanks to a controversial penalty call.

After Perisic's second, Inter almost made it 3-0 as he squared to substitute Joao Mario, only for the midfielder to shoot straight at Courtois.

He hopes to bring in reinforcements into the squad ahead of the English Premier League season where Chelsea will face Burnley on August 12.

And the Chelsea striker was less than impressed about the decision. "Even if we had to sell him, it would be hard because we are short of wingers".

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.

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.
