The final fixture of the International Champions’ Cup is here, with Chelsea taking on Inter Milan in the National Stadium, Singapore. The last time Chelsea encountered Inter was in a similar pre-season game in Indianapolis where the good guys ran out 2-0 winners;the last meeting in a competitive match was back in March 2011 when Jose Mourinho’s star-studded Inter knocked Chelsea out of the Champions League in the round of 16. Since then, much like their cross-city rivals AC Milan, they’ve been struggling to remain relevant and are currently in the process of building towards re-establishing their glory days, under the stewardship of Luciano Spalletti. Nevertheless, they should be giving us a good game today, after defeating Bayern Munich 2-0 prior to this.

Best XI it is, then. Morata and Batshuayi starting together (in a possible 3-4-1-2?), while Rüdiger should be coming on at some point as well. Let's do this!
