Roberto Di Matteo was impressed after Chelsea fell to a friendly defeat in Miami. “Milan are a good team with a lot of internationals so it was a good test for us.”
The Champions League winners were beaten 1-0 as part of their US tour on Saturday night thanks to a goal from Urby Emanuelson.
“It is always better to win, it gives you a good feeling, so we are disappointed with the result but I thought there was a big improvement from Wednesday’s game,” Di Matteo told the official club website.
“It was a very tactical game for long periods of time. There were small periods in the first half when it opened up a little bit and maybe towards the end after they scored we got a little bit stretched because we tried to equalise, but Milan are a good team with a lot of internationals so it was a good test for us.”
Chelsea fielded a very strong side including John Terry, Ashley Cole, Eden Hazard and Petr Cech.
