New head coach Antonio Conte was beaten in his first game in charge as Chelsea lost their opening pre-season friendly 2-0 against Rapid Vienna.
The Blues had completed the signing of N’Golo Kante earlier in the day, but the arrival failed to inspire anything other than a disappointing display from his new side, who were thoroughly outplayed by their hosts.
Joelinton netted early on and substitute Tomi sealed the win to give the Austrian side a perfect lift ahead of their league opener next week.
For Chelsea and Conte, there is plenty of work to do ahead of their next pre-season game against WAC RZ Pellets in four days.
