Perisic helps Inter beat Chelsea

GETTYAC Milan director Marco Fassone says he has contacted Diego Costa's agent

Inter had the first chance of the game early on but Thibaut Courtois made a save before Gary Cahill blocked a follow-up effort.

It's the 2nd loss in a row for Chelsea in pre-season and Antonio Conte is not a happy man.

Chelsea had the better chances in the first half with Alvaro Morata, Batshuayi missing good chances in the first 10 minutes of the game.

"With Perisic a year ago, we won nothing", said Spalletti.

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.

The offside flag wrongly denied Batshuayi an equaliser after he finished well with four minutes to play and Inter held on to record a third ICC victory in a row.

"We want to continue along this road and do well in the league to return to the Champions League".

While the Italian will have no qualms with his team's attitude - the Blues battled hard against Inter, just as they did against Bayern - and can point to a late incorrect offside call costing his side a draw on Saturday, his backline have looked uncharacteristically out of shape in their past two outings.

The Premier League champions face FA Cup winners Arsenal in the Community Shield at Wembley next Sunday, but don't go into that game in particularly convincing form.

While many own goals contain some truly comical defending, there was nothing of the sort as Inter midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia found the back of his own net.

Inter have also been at risk of losing another winger in the shape of Ivan Perisic, with Manchester United interested in the Croatia global. There are no negotiations ongoing and we can't sell any player in that position.

Daniele Padelli risked a repeat of his infamous own goal for Torino, caught out by a Milan Skriniar back-pass, but on the stroke of half-time Inter took the lead.
