Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable win over Malaysia yesterday.

Belgium forward Kevin de Bruyne made a goal and scored another before departing on a stretcher as Chelsea claimed a comprehensive victory against a Malaysia XI at Shah Alam Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.

Bertrand Traore, a 17-year-old Burkina Faso international and trialist, scored after six minutes and De Bruyne doubled the advantage after 29 minutes before going off with a knee injury which did not prevent him from joining his team-mates on the bench for the final quarter of the match.

Romelu Lukaku added a third in first-half stoppage time and Victor Moses added an 89th-minute fourth.

The biggest roar of the night came when Nizad Ayub headed a stoppage-time consolation as Jose Mourinho recorded a second win of his second spell as boss at Stamford Bridge.

Mark Schwarzer made his first Chelsea appearance in goal and Traore also started in a team which mixed experience and youth.
