Chelsea finished their pre-season tour of China and Singapore with a 2-1 International Champions Cup defeat to Inter Milan on Saturday - and their final fixture in the Far East will have given boss Antonio Conte plenty to contemplate.
A deflected Willian effort narrowly cleared the crossbar after 27 minutes and, with Chelsea piling on the pressure, Padelli nearly controlled a back-pass into his own net.
In the second half, Ivan Perisic drilled home from an angle in the 53rd minute after great build-up work by Stevan Jovetic to make it 2-0.
Alvaro Morata started his first game for the Blues following his £60m move from Real Madrid and he looked lively throughout despite not scoring.
It was a match full of talking points involving the officials - with Stefan Jovetic getting the opening goal with a rebound from his penalty, that had been saved by Thibault Courtois.
Corbyn told Venezuelan President Maduro that European Union is 'bad for the poor'
Maduro accused the USA of fomenting the unrest against him and his government, with the help of the conservative opposition. He calls on Venezuelans "to stop this with peaceful resistance and deep commitment to our efforts".
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.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says his team is working "very hard" ahead of next season's Premier League and Champions League.
"However, we have been playing a lot of games so close to each other, around five in a couple of weeks, and the last of them was just two days ago".
And the Chelsea striker was less than impressed about the decision. Will we see him lining up against Chelsea in the Premier League next season?
Chelsea's clash with Inter Milan will have made interesting viewing for Manchester United fans, given the presence of reported United target Perisic in the Italian side's line-up - and they will have been impressed with what they saw from the Croatian.
