Chelsea lost 3-2 to Bayern Munich in an International Champions Cup clash at the The National Stadium (Singapore) on Tuesday afternoon.
For the third game in pre-season, The Blues manager Antonio Conte named Victor Moses in his starting line-up, while Bayern’s star of Nigerian descent David Alaba watched proceedings from the bench.
In less than thirty minutes, the Bavarians were three goals up courtesy of a brace from Thomas Müller and an additional tally by Rafinha.
In the third minute of first-half stoppage time, the Premier League champions reduced the deficit when Marcos Alonso finished after Victor Moses had supplied a cross.
With 76 minutes on the clock, England U20 star Fikayo Tomori came on for Chelsea’s goalscorer and he took up Moses’s position, and the Super Eagles star shifted sides.
Tomori almost grabbed his first senior goal after arriving at the far post, but he headed just wide from a Moses delivery.
It became 3-2 in the 85th minute, Batshuayi scored from close range after Morata flicked the ball at the near post.
Up next, Chelsea square off against Inter Milan at Singapore’s National Stadium on July 29, before returning to England to continue their pre-season preparations.
