Thomas Muller double helps Bayern Munich sink Chelsea in Singapore

Thomas Muller scored a first-half double as Bayern Munich beat Chelsea 3-2 in a warm-up game in Singapore.

The German champions, looking to bounce back from their 4-0 drubbing by AC Milan last week, stormed out of the blocks and took an early lead through Rafinha’s long-range strike.

Bayern’s pace was too much for the Blues’ defence to handle and they raced into a 3-0 lead courtesy of Muller’s volley followed up with a stunning strike from outside the box.

Marcos Alonso pulled a goal back for the Blues, who brought on record signing Alvaro Morata for his debut in the second half.

And Chelsea improved in the second 45 minutes with Carlo Ancelotti’s side weakened by the string of substitutions.

Michy Batshuayi, who netted twice in the 3-0 victory over Arsenal on Saturday, scored late on to set up a tense finish, but Bayern held on to seal victory from a thrilling friendly.
