Dominic Solanke's first-half strike earned Chelsea a slender 1-0 friendly win over Thailand All-Stars on Saturday.

Solanke, who made his senior debut for Chelsea in their 6-0 Champions League win over Maribor in October, scored the only goal of the game after 13 minutes to hand Jose Mourinho's Premier League champions victory in Bangkok.

The 17-year-old swept Loic Remy's low right-wing cross into the left-hand bottom corner to ensure the Blues began their post-season tour in successful fashion at the Rajamangala National Stadium.

Chelsea now travel to Australia where they will take on Sydney FC, beaten by Tottenham earlier today, at the ANZ Stadium on Tuesday.
