Chelsea beat a Singha All Star XI 1-0 in a pre-season friendly played in Thailand this afternoon.
The Blues secured the win courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku penalty. Hardly a comprehensive victory, but better than Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to the same opposition.
The only concerns for new manager Jose Mourinho were a lack of some clinical finishing and an ice pack being clutched by Frank Lampard, who dropped out of the starting line-up at short notice. Rumours are it’s just a minor ankle knock.
