That brings to an end a satisfactory day's work for Conte and his men. There were plenty of positives for Chelsea to take from this match. Cuadrado, Hazard, Oscar and Batshuayi all looked bright after coming on while N'golo Kante proved as reliable as ever in his first match for Chelsea.

Chelsea will go back home happy while Milan showed glimpses of good football to provide a small ray of hope to their fans

The last match in USA for the ICC cup comes to an end!

...
90' We will have two additional minutes here.
...
87' GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Oscar scores and that is the game for Chelsea! Cuadrado plays a lovely through ball and Oscar running in behind the Milan defence scores from a composed and brilliant first time finish. Lovely goal by Chelsea

...
81' After a very good start by Milan in the second half, Chelsea have dominated the game with Milan struggling to get out of their own half. Conte will be relatively pleased with his side's workout so far
...
78' Chelsea make two more changes as Nathan Chalobah and Juan Cuadrado come on for Matic and Willian
...
77' Kante as always has gone about his work quietly and effectively, putting in an assured performance in the defensive midfielder role!

Like a popular meme says, 70% of the earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by N'golo Kante!
...
73' Ever since Chelsea have changed their formation, they have looked much more assured and threatening on the ball with Hazard and Willian causing the Milan full-backs plenty of problems
...
...
70' GOOOOOOOAAALLLL! Oscar converts the penalty. Donnarumma guessed the right way, but Oscar's penalty was struck well into thr top corner

...
68' CHELSEA WIN A PENALTY! Willian sends in a lovely diagonal ball towards Azpilicueta whose cross is deemed to have struck the hand of Poli! Replays show that it was harsh on Poli and Milan
...
67' Chelsea are definitely starting to dominate possession here and with Hazard and Batshuayi looking particularly threatening!
...
64' CLOSE! The resulting corner taken by Willian finds Cahill whose header goes wide of the goal, Cahill should have done better there
...

...
60' Milan make their first change of the game as Montolio comes on for the impressive Ignazio Abate
...
59' Ivanovic comes on for Aina. Batshuayi and Oscar are also introduced as Costa and Fabregas make way.

58' SAVE! Fabregas cuts open the defence with a wonderful through ball , and Willians powerful shot is saved well by Donnarumma! You just cannot predict the winner here
...
56' OFFSIDE! Suso chips in a lovely free-kick, but Kucka was offside for Milan
...
55' The game's pace has slightly slowed down after the frantic start, but Milan are still looking dangerous.
...
52' Chelsea are bringing in the big guns! Eden Hazard and N'golo Kante come on for Traore and Moses. 

A change in tactics and formation for Antonio Conte I suppose
...
49' CLOSE AGAIN! Niang shows some lovely skill to leave Traore for dead and his cross-cum-shot takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner. A very positive start for Milan
...
48' CLOSE! Calabria and Niang combine well and the ball falls to Abate on the edge of the box whose shot goes narrowly wide of the post!
...
47' Milan are once again trying to play their way out of the back, but they look shaky whenever they attempt to do so
...
46' Chelsea get us underway in the second half!
...
The second half is just moments away with both teams set to make a number of changes
...
...
Chelsea and AC Milan have played out an entertaining half of football and one can only hope that the inevitable raft of substitutions in the second half do not disrupt the flow of this game.

That Bonaventura free-kick goal is still giving me goosebumps. Amazing goal! We will be back with the second half in no time at all! Stay tuned
...
HT CHELSEA 1-1 AC MILAN
...
43' The first half has zipped by with both Chelsea and Milan playing some attractive football. Niang and Bonaventura have looked bright for Milan while Matic and Traore have been the standout players for Chelsea so far.

...
24' GOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Chelsea score! Matic played in a lovely through ball to Moses who struck a first time shot. It is saved well by Donnarumma, but Bertrand Traore responded to the rebound and headed the ball into an empty net! Brilliant reflexed by the Chelsea youngster.

...
20' SHOT! Donnarumma gives the ball away to Matic who plays in Bertrand Traore, but the young forward's shot is straight at the Milan GK who saves easily
...
18' Chelsea are really struggling to impose themselves on the game with Milan making all of the early running. The 4-4-2 experiment from Conte seems to be failing with Fabregas and Matic hopelessly exposed at the centre of the park
...
15' CLOSE! Niang almost gives Milan the lead! The Serie A giants carve open the Chelsea defence again and Luiz Adriano's ball finds Niang. However, the young forward's strike is saved brilliantly by Courtois 
...
12' CHANCE! Diego Costa should have scored! Willian curls in an inviting ball straight onto Costa's head, but the Spaniard's header goes just wide. Costa should have scored!
