Moses Helps Chelsea to Defeat Inter Milan in a Friendly (UPDATED)

Jose Mourinho returned to the Blues this June, after managing Spain’s Real Madrid the past two seasons.

The victory, courtesy of goals from Oscar and Eden Hazard in the first half-hour, saw Chelsea book a meeting with AC Milan on Sunday in New York in the International Champions Cup friendly tournament.

The event, which also features Everton, Juventus, Real Madrid, Valencia and the Los Angeles Galaxy, kicks off in Miami on August 7.

Victor Moses and company have comfortably won all three of their matches in Asian tour before arriving to the USA.

41,983 fans attended Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, and they didn’t have to wait long for the first goal.

Chelsea took the lead in the 12th minute as Nigeria’s Victor Moses broke through to the edge of the penalty area and passed to Oscar, who curled a superb shot past Samir Handanovic and into the upper corner of the net.

Rodrigo Palacio tried to level things with a long-range shot deflected off John Terry, forcing Petr Cech to make a one-handed grab.

However, Inter would get no closer the rest of the night.

Chelsea doubled their advantage in controversial circumstances in the 28th minute. Moses was brought down on the edge of the area and a penalty was awarded despite the protests of Inter players – whose claim he was outside the box appeared to be justified by video replays.

Nevertheless, Belgian winger Hazard calmly took his shot, sending Handanovic the wrong way to notch his second penalty in as many matches.

Inter were clearly frustrated, and Hugo Campagnaro was sent off for a nasty stamp on Terry at the hour mark.

“The red card changed (the match) completely,” Mourinho said. “Not good for them because they played with 10, and not good for us, because we played against 10.”

In his usual post-game commentary, Victor Moses shared the following on Twitter:
