Result: Chelsea 1 Suwon Bluewings 0

An unmarked Didier Drogba scored in the 80th minute to break the scoreless deadlock in the nightcap, knocking in a ball at the far post Shawn Wright-Phillips had intelligently scooped over the Bluewings defense.

The game, which started at a fairly pedestrian clip, livened up as it wore on.

Chelsea never looked particularly challenged and moved to 2-0 on its preseason tour of the U.S., after beating Mexico’s Club America in the Bay Area over the weekend.

Based on tonight’s Chelsea performance, Yallop has every right to be worried – and not just about his job.

Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho said after the game that after seeing his squad in 10 training sessions and two 45-minute games (he played virtually a separate line-up in each half of each game) he will for the first time this season against the Galaxy Saturday play the same 11 for an hour in a 4-4-2 formation.

Thankfully he only caught 10 minutes of the Galaxy game.

    Is there any way to see the Suwon/Chelsea match? I don’t have FSC.

    Nick: The Chelsea-Suwon game was last night. The Galaxy-Chelsea game is on ESPN Saturday with blanket coverage for much of the day, although the kick off is around 5:30 p.m.
