Geoffrey Kondogbia scores outrageous own goal against Chelsea, fans can't believe it

"I was pleasantly surprised by the level of professionalism of the players", Spalletti told reporters on Saturday after his side claimed the International Champions Cup Singapore tournament with a 2-1 win over the English champions.

Chelsea once again started their game very slowly and were reliant on counter-attacks - something that is clearly not working.

The Belgian global has been in fine form for Chelsea in pre-season as he hopes to play his way into Antonio Conte's plans for the Premier League season.

Chelsea's pre-season tour of Asia saw Conte's men defeated twice, the Premier League champions having previously lost 3-2 to Bayern Munich, and the Italian suggested a tight schedule affected results.

Willian had Chelsea's first real chance with a deflected effort in the 27th minute, before David Luiz fizzed a freekick over.

The Blues were 2-0 down against the Serie A side in their match today, following a controversial Stevan Jovetic penalty and sublime Ivan Perisic strike. Frustratingly, his best moves were clever turns near the halfway line and clipped passes across the pitch to spread the play, rather than the unsafe moments in the penalty box he is renowned for.

A Kyrie-Rose backcourt is also intriguing for super small ball lineups, which I guess can work against certain matchups. Ball likely will start for the Purple and Gold, but Rose wouldn't be a bad addition as a backup point guard.

With time fast running out, Michy Batshuayi thought he had restored parity for Chelsea but his goal was disallowed for offside.

Next Sunday's Community Shield with Arsenal will be the next gauge of Chelsea's progress towards their best form and Conte will be eager to see an improvement at both ends of the field at Wembley, before the new league season gets underway.

"We have no replacements in his position, we want to keep him with us".

After taking a pass from Jeison Murillo, Kondogbia badly over hit a back pass to goalkeeper Daniele Padelli.

The ball was played into the midfielder who was standing just behind the centre circle in his own half.
