Chelsea dealt blow as Inter Milan manager refuses Antonio Candreva sale

Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic cemented their Inter status after scoring in a 2-1 victory over Antonio Conte's Chelsea, but Geoffrey Kondogbia scored an fantastic own goal.

It may count for lottle but manager Antonio Conte will have to make amends soon.

Chelsea fans were quick to point the finger at Conte afterwards, with Morata used out of position on the left-hand side of Chelsea's attack, allowing Michy Batshuayi to occupy the central striker role.

Perisic then doubled Inter's lead in the 53rd minute, the reported Manchester United target firing across Courtois and into the bottom-right corner after being played in by Jovetic.

Moses who was in the starting 11 was substituted in the 89th minute while Nigerian-born England 2017 U-20 FIFA World Cup victor, Fikayo Tomori, came on late in the game.

Chelsea's next game is the Community Shield against London rivals Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, August 6.

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.

Two days after the Italian side beat Bayern Munich 2-0 at the same venue, Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic put Inter into a commanding lead before a weird own goal from Geoffrey Kondogbia gave Chelsea hope of a late recovery. Will we see him lining up against Chelsea in the Premier League next season?

One of the most outrageous own goals ever scored was not enough to prevent Chelsea ending their pre-season tour with another defeat.

Under pressure from an opponent as his side clashed with Chelsea in the International Champions Cup, Kondogbia attempted to play it safe by passing back to his own goalkeeper.
