FT: Indonesia All Stars 1 Chelsea 8

The full-time whistle goes with not a moment of stoppage time and Chelsea can reflect on the perfect finish to a successful tour, having demolished the Indonesia All Stars 8-1 and produced a ruthless display.

88
The home side make another double change, with goalkeeper Meiga getting a well-deserved round of applause for his efforts in a losing cause as he comes off along with Greg.

86
The home side make another double change, with goalkeeper Meiga getting a well-deserved round of applause for his efforts in a losing cause as he comes off along with Greg. Saka and Supriyanto are the men to enter the fray.

85
The All Stars continue to chase shadows as Chelsea pass it around patiently in midfield. They may be winning convincingly but at this stage of a pre-season game in hot conditions, they will also be looking to conserve energy.

83
Another change for the All Stars sees Yudhi come on for Igbonefo.

81
Indonesia make another change a Maitimo is replaced by Hadi for the closing stages.

80
Essien has not quite found his shooting range just yet as he blazes off target from distance.

78
Schwarzer's experience makes him a great back-up option for Chelsea but it has been a quiet outing for him so far. Apart from picking the ball out of his net for the own goal, the Australian gets perhaps his first touch as he plucks a cross safely out of the air.

76
The first yellow card of the contest is shown to All Stars substitute Gatra following a foul just outside the area.

74
Chelsea are just content to pass it around in midfield at the moment, as patiently pulling the All Stars out of position and waiting for the right moment to pounce.

72
Lukaku is denied a hat-trick by an acrobatic save from Meiga as the All Stars keeper flings himself to his left to tip a header behind for a corner.

70
As a perfectionist, Mourinho would have loved a clean sheet here but he must be thrilled with the ruthlessness of Chelsea's performance.

68
GOAL! Another goal for a Chelsea player, but this time it is an own goal as Kalas puts through his own net to make it 8-1. Greg deserves great credit for the part he played after darting in from the right and cutting the ball back into a dangerous area, forcing Kalas into an attempted interception which he got all wrong.

66
GOAL! Lukaku keeps up his excellent form with his second goal of the game, and fourth of the tour, to make it 8-0. Chelsea carve open the All Stars far too easily and Lukaku provides the cutting edge with a neat strike into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

65
Traore tries his luck with a shot from distance but does not connect forcefully and Indonesia survive on this occasion.

64
The changes at half-time did not seem to disrupt Chelsea's rhythm but the most recent substitutions have just allowed Indonesia to gain a slight foothold in terms of possession.

62
The All Stars enjoy a brief spell of possession in midfield as they look to restore a small measure of respectability to the score line.

60
Chelsea make another triple substitution, with youngsters McEachran, Piazon and Feruz replacing Ramires, Van Ginkel and Hazard.

59
Lukaku is a very direct player and he makes a charge for goal but just loses control of the ball after initially beating his defender.

57
GOAL! Ramires adds a seventh for Chelsea with another stunning strike, powerfully lashed past Meiga from outside the area after good link-up play with Lukaku.

56
The All Stars win a free-kick in a great position just outside the area and Greg's effort is well struck, but flies over Schwarzer's crossbar.

54
It is more like a home game for Chelsea as the crowd, representing a sea of blue, shows their appreciation for a wonderful performance so far from Mourinho's men.

53
GOAL! Lukaku makes it six with a header from close range after great work by Hazard down the left, with the Belgian playmaker showing quick feet before sending over a pinpoint cross for his compatriot.

52
GOAL! Traore is certainly one for the future and he underlines his enormous promise with the goal of the game, curling a sublime shot into the top corner from 20 yards to make it 5-0.

50
Lukaku's pace and power is frightening when he is in full flow and he bulldozes his way down the right wing before just losing control at the final moment as he tries to get into a position to shoot.

48
Van Ginkel shows good speed and skill to skip past his defender near the byline and deliver a menacing cross, which Essien is just unable to get on the end of in the middle.

47
It is probably going to be a case of damage limitation for the All Stars in the second half, as Chelsea pick up where they left off at the end of the first period and press forwrad.

46
The second half gets started and there have been a host of changes at the break as you might expect. Schwarzer, Ivanovic, Essien, Lukaku, Kalas and Traore are all on for Chelsea.

The half-time whistle goes and Chelsea are running rampant with a 4-0 lead. The Indonesia All Stars battled hard for the opening 20 minutes but there has been a huge gulf in class since the Blues clicked into gear, and they could emerge from this game with a massive winning margin if they keep the intensity high after the interval.

45
GOAL! Chelsea make it four on the stroke of half-time as their make their aerial superiority count from a set-piece. Cahill wins the initial flick-on from Bertrand's inswinging free-kick on the right wing and Terry nods home the finish.

44
Hazard is cynically brought down by Pellu as he drives forward from midfield. The All Stars player was nowhere near the ball and would surely have received a card had this not been a friendly.

43
The All Stars enjoy a rare foray into the Chelsea forward but Sinaga finds himself isolated and does well to earn a free-kick following a foul by Wallace.

42
Everyone wants to get in on the act and Moses attempts to bend in a shot from outside the area, but again it is too close to the keeper and is easily caught.

41
Chelsea mount another attack down the right an Wallace delivers a teasing cross-cum-shot, which the keeper gets a touch on to take it behind for a corner.

39
Terry releases hazard into the area with a fine pass but the Belgian tries one trick too many as he rounds Meiga then attempts to cut back inside him and allows the keeper the chance to reclaim the ball.

37
Van Ginkel will have tougher challenges ahead at Chelsea but he is looking the part here, battling hard and passing the ball intelligently.

35
Chelsea continue to dominate possession as Hazard chases what looks to be a lost cause down the left wing. The keeper just manages to get to the ball first and clear, but only just.

33
Chelsea have well and truly hit their stride now and it looks like being a long hour ahead for the ll Stars after that three-goal blitz.

32
GOAL! Chelsea notch their third of the game as Hazard plays in Ramires, whose shot with the outside of the boot should be comfortably held by Meiga, Instead, the keeper only manages to shovel the ball out to Ba, who does well to react quickly and turn in a smart finish from close range.

30
GOAL! Ramires makes it 2-0 to Chelsea with a thumping finish into the roof of the net from ten yards which beats the keeper for power. Hazard set up the chance with a run in from the left and chipped cross back to the Brazilian, via a clever flicked header from Bertrand.

28
The woodwork comes to Indonesia's rescue for a second time in the space of a minute as Hazard leads a swift breakaway and plays in Wallace, who strikes the near post from a tight angle on the right.

27
Chelsea come close to adding to their lead as Chalobah threads a low shot through a crowded area and Meiga just gets his fingertip to the ball to turn it on to the post.

25
Chelsea are firmly on top now and Chalobah is looking impressive in his deep midfield role in front of the back four.

23
Moses tries to jink his way past his defender on the edge of the area but is too clever for his own good and slips to the ground.

22
GOAL! Hazard steps up to take the penalty and coolly sends the goalkeeper the wrong way as he tucks his shot low into the corner. 1-0 Chelsea.

21
PENALTY: Terry is not afraid to put his body on the line in a goalmouth scramble, even in a pre-season friendly, and his determination is rewarded with a penalty as Hamsah dangerously swings a leg at the Chelsea skipper, who gets back to his feet gingerly and will be fine to continue.

19
Moses powers his way through the middle before trying his luck with a shot that is too close to Meiga and is well saved.

17
Moses threatens again down the wide but is well tracked by his defender and the cross is intercepted.

15
Bertrand shows his attacking prowess with a fine run down the left and digs out an excellent cross for the unmarked Ramires in the centre. The Brazilian heads down and it looks like a certain goal, but Meiga gets a crucial touch to turn it behind.

14
Bertrand is beaten for pace by Andik down the Indonesia right but the cross is poor and Chelsea clear their lines.

13
Chelsea piece together a decent move to work themselves into a good position, but Ba's final shot takes a deflection off a defender which takes all the power out of the ball and presents Meiga with the simplest of saves.

12
Wallace is perhaps a tad too enthusiastic as he concedes a free-kick in Chelsea territory following a rash tackle on Greg.

10
Moses surrenders possession too easily in midfield and Indonesia break forward quickly, but they are unable to deliver an incisive final pass.

9
Hazard gets on the ball for the first time and there is an air of anticipation as he skips away from his marker and shoots from 25 yards, but it is a poor effort which flies over.

7
It has been a lively start in Jakarta and the home side are playing their part. They look disciplined and hard-working and, already midway through their domestic season, this should be a good test for Chelsea.

5
Bertrand gets forward well down the left before being sent tumbling to the floor by a mistimed challenge.

4
Wallace demonstrates his speed down the right and also a bit of skill before he is prevented from bursting into the box by a couple of defenders working well together.

3
An enormous roar erupts from the crowd as the All Stars break down the left, but Sinaga's cross falls kindly for Blackman to gather the ball.

2
Chelsea show plenty of urgency from the start as they press their opponents at every opportunity and aim to pin them back inside their own half.

1
Chelsea kick us off a couple of minutes late and there is a great atmosphere around the ground as the visitors look to enjoy a spell of early possession.

There is a packed stadium of more than 80,000 fans in Jakarta as the two teams stroll on to the field for what we hope will be a fascinating contest.

Iain is also in confident mood, writing: "I can only see one outcome, Chelsea will win this one by 2 to 3 goals. Lukaku will score at least one goal."

Oscar, a fan, not the player, has been in touch to say: "Hi, I'm predicting a 3-0 win today with the first two coming in the first half. Changes at the break will likely interrupt the flow of the game, but I'd expect Mourinho's men to control it despite the conditions. Come on you Blues!"

Indonesia All Stars: Meiga, Maitimo, Roby, Igbonefo, Hamsah, Bustomi, Pellu, Sinaga, Greg, Andik, Alam.

Arsenal and Liverpool have already played games in Jakarta during pre-season and fared very well, with the Gunners running out 7-0 winners over an Indonesia Dream team, and the Reds beating an Indonesia XI 2-0. The home crowd will be desperate to see their team challenge Chelsea this afternoon, although there will also be huge support for the Premier League club.
