Result: Chelsea fight back to win in Slovenia

Goals from Diego Costa and Kurt Zouma see Chelsea come from behind to beat NK Olimpija Ljubljana 2-1 in their pre-season friendly in Slovenia.

Chelsea have come from behind to beat NK Olimpija Ljubljana 2-1 in their pre-season friendly in Slovenia.

The home side went in at half time 1-0 up after Nik Kapun had caught the Chelsea defence napping to fire in.

Chelsea were much improved in the second half, and they drew level on 56 minutes when Diego Costa latched on to a pass from Cesc Fabregas before smashing the ball past the goalkeeper.

The visitors then took the lead just seven minutes later as Kurt Zouma reacted quickest inside the penalty area to poke home.

Jose Mourinho's side thought that they had scored a third goal moments later, but Branislav Ivanovic's effort was harshly ruled out.

Chelsea almost grabbed another late on, only for Fernando Torres to somehow chest the ball over the crossbar from two yards out.
