Chelsea closed their tour of the United States with a 3-1 win over AC Milan in Minneapolis.

Bertrand Traore opened the scoring for Antonio Conte's men, while Oscar's double sealed the victory after Giacomo Bonaventura had drawn Milan level.

Traore stooped a low header in to give the Premier League side the lead early on but Bonaventura curled in a superb free-kick to equalise shortly before the break.

After N'Gole Kante came on for his first Blues appearance in the second half, Chelsea began to take control and Oscar's penalty restored their lead.

His second three minutes from time sealed the victory when he found the bottom corner.

Chelsea now return across the Atlantic before a final friendly with Werder Bremen to close their pre-season schedule at the weekend.
