FULL-TIME: A bizarre and thoroughly entertaining match comes to an end - Chelsea lose 2-1 in a hard fought battle.
Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic grabbed the goals for Inter, but an outrageous own-goal from defender Geoffrey Kondogbia will surely steal the headlines.
Time running out for the Blues and they look set to return to England having suffered back-to-back defeats.
Five additional minutes will be played at the end of the match.
Chelsea make SIX changes! Remy, Clarke-Salter, Tomori, Scott, Cuevas and Pasalic are on for the final minutes.
Batshuayi slides the ball into the back of the net, but the linesman had his flag raised! The replay suggests the Chelsea forward was onside, however.
Into the final five minutes here in Singapore, and Chelsea still trail by two goals to one. However, the Blues are pushing for a second goal.
The energetic Musonda twists and turns on the edge of the penalty area, before unloading a shot at goal. However, it's relatively straight forward for Padelli.
Chelsea win a corner as they push for the equaliser. Again, it's Cahill who wins the header but Padelli makes a comfortable save.

INTER SUB: Federico Valietti comes on for Borja Valero.
You will see Kondogbia's own-goal for years to come, that is for sure. It was absolutely hilarous.
- Own-goalGeoffrey KondogbiaInternazionale
GOAL! Chelsea 1-2 Inter.
Oh my, this is the most bizarre own-goal you will EVER see! Geoffrey Kondogbia has just lobbed his own goalkeeper from 45 yards and Chelsea have one back. Absolutely outrageous finish, into his own net!
INTER SUBS: The Italians make a whole host of changes...
* Brozovic off for Eder
* Miranda off for Jeison Murillo
* Nagatoma off for Ansaldi
& Perisic off for Gabriel
Having opened their pre-season campaign in style with a 3-0 victory over Arsenal, Chelsea have been disappointing. They conceded three times in the first-half against Bayern Munich, and they have been poor today once more.
CHANCE FOR CHELSEA! Cahill wins a header from a Chelsea corner. It falls to Rudiger who pokes it towards goal, but straight into the arms of Padelli.
Perisic is far too quick for Rudiger as he breezes his way past the Chelsea full-back on the channel. He has few options in the middle and opts to shoot from a tight angle, but can only find the side netting.

CHELSEA SUBS: Charly Musonda Jr and Jeremie Boga take the places of Willian and Morata.
SAVE! Perisic is at the heart of yet another Inter attack as he squares a pass to Joao Mario who sees his effort well saved by Courtois!

CHELSEA SUB: Antonio Rudiger makes his debut as he replaces Alonso.
- GoalIvan PerišicInternazionale
GOAL! Chelsea 0-2 Inter.
The Italians have done well to absorb the Blues' pressure, and now they strike to double their advantage. It's a classic counter-attacking goal, finished by the remarkable Ivan Perisic. He was released on the left channel, and he was allowed to surge into the penalty area before firing beyond Courtois into the bottom corner.
Patient build-up play from Chelsea. The ball is worked wide to Moses who curls a cross into the penalty area, but D'Ambrosio is in the right place to clear with his head.
Are Chelsea missing Diego Costa? The Spain international would surely have finished that chance...
BATSHUAYI MISSES! Inter concede the ball in their own penalty area, but Chelsea can't capitalise as Batshuayi contrives to miss the target from a few yards out. What an opportunity.
OFFSIDE! Inter score straight from the kick-off, but Chelsea are saved by the linesman! The second-half is only 12 seconds old when Jovetic taps the ball into an empty net after Courtois had saved from a low shot, but he was standing in an offside position. It was a close call, and he may have been onside.

The second-half begins.
- End of 1st Half
HALF-TIME: Boos greet the referee's whistle. The supporters in Singapore are clearly unhappy with the decision to give Inter a penalty right on the stroke of half-time.
- GoalStevan JoveticInternazionale
GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 Inter.
Courtois saves from Jovetic's penalty, but the Inter forward is first to react and taps the rebound into the net.
PENALTY TO INTER!
Azpilicueta is adjudged to have fouled Jovetic in the box, and the referee points to the spot! It looks extremely soft on first glance...
Four additional minutes are added on at the end of the first-half.
Pulling off a backheel can joyous when they come off, but you can look very silly if they don't. Willian is smarting as he tries to find Moses with one, but it goes straight out of play.
There isn't much of a 'friendly' about this one. The referee gives Azpilicueta a stern talking to after yet another foull.
Chelsea try to up the ante as we approach half-time. There are five minutes until the break, but there will be a couple of additional minutes due to the water break.
CLOSE! A back pass is played to Inter's goalkeeper Padelli but he mis-controls it! Fortunately, for him, it goes beyond the touchline, rather than into the net. That was nearly extremely embarrassing.
It's been a pretty slow game in Singapore as both teams try to adjust to the sweltering heat. Very few talking points in the way of chances, thus far.
Moses and Willian combine on the channel, but Brozovic does well to dispossess the former, and then wins a free-kick.
We're back underway.
SHOTS ON GOAL: Inter 7-6 Chelsea.
The players will stop for a couple of minutes to take some drinks on board. It is very, very hot in Singapore.
CLOSE! Chelsea waste little time in taking the corner which they play short. Willian strikes from the edge of the penalty area, but it's deflected inches over the bar.
The ball is swung into the Inter penalty area where David Luis meets it! However, the ball appears to strike the arm of Jovetic and out of play. The referee signals for the corner, much to the frustration of the Chelsea players.
Morata continues to drift into wide areas, and to good effect as well. He wins a free-kick close to the by-line and Chelsea have a chance to open the scoring now.
OFFSIDE: Willian finds himself in a great position, but the linesman's flag curtails his run. It was a close call.
After a slow beginning, Chelsea are starting to grow in confidence. They're knocking the ball around with some conviction now and getting plenty of bodies forward. They should do better with their latest chance, but Azpillicueta plays his cross straight into the arms of Padelli.
Cahill is now back on his feet and looks fine to continue.
A slight concern for Antonio Conte as Cahill goes down and the game is stopped so the England defender can receive treatment.
Batshuayi peels off his marker to latch onto Fabregas' well crafted through ball. However, the Chelsea forward smashes it first time from 25 yards and sends it into row-Z.
Cracks beginning to appear in the Inter defence as Batshuayi is released behind with Willian in support. A weighted pass finds his team mate, but Inter get men back and the chance comes to nothing.
Now Morata is found on the right channel. The Spaniard swings a cross into the Inter penalty area, but the defenders clear. It comes back to Kante whose shot is blocked on the edge.
Alvaro Morata has been starved of service thus far. The Chelsea forward has been forced to drop deep to become involved.
Gary Cahill sees his effort from range blocked on the edge of the box from the resulting corner.
Better from Chelsea. A long ball into the Inter penalty area causes some confusion as defender Skriniar ignores the calls of his goalkeeper Padelli and concedes a corner.
Chelsea conceded three times in the first-half against Bayern Munich, and Antonio Conte certainly won't want a repeat of that here. Truth is, the Blues are fortunate not to be trailing by two already.
Inter have started the match at a frightening pace, and they should be ahead. Roberto Gagliardini sends a half-volley inches wide of the goal from the edge of penalty area.
CHANCE FOR INTER!
Lacklustre defending from David Luis as he allows Antonio Candreva in behind! The Inter forward sees his shot saved and Chelsea scramble the danger away.
- 1st Half
KICK-OFF! We're underway.
Antonio Conte (Chelsea manager): "This game is important for us because we had the possibility to check our physical conditions and whether our tactical work is improving. I think so.
"This pre-season has been very important as we have worked very well. We have improved tactically and this is a good game against a strong team."
THE START OF SOMETHING SPECIAL?
Inter finished in a disappointing seventh position in Serie A last season, but manager Luciano Spalletti will be boosted by how his side have played during pre-season. They come into the match with Chelsea full of confidence, having secured a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich last time out. Eder grabbed a brace, but it was the performance of Manchester United target Ivan Perisic which was most impressive.
ALVARO MORATA STARTS FOR CHELSEA: After featuring from the bench in the defeat to Bayern, the £60m forward has been awarded his first start for his new club. He is partnered in attack by Michy Batshuayi who has been impressing in the absence of Diego Costa. Antonio Rudiger doesn't start but is named among the substitutes while Pedro was forced to withdraw from the tour after suffering a serious concussion in the game against Arsenal.
