CHELSEA CAME FROM behind to draw 1-1 at RZ Pellets WAC in a friendly last night.

Brazilian full-back Filipe Luis – who penned a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge last week – made his debut and played an hour of the pre-season fixture with the Austrian side at the Worthersee Stadion.

However, the Brazil international was unable to help his new team follow up friendly wins over Wycombe Wanderers and AFC Wimbledon.

After a goalless first half, the hosts went ahead in controversial fashion 10 minutes after the restart when Silvio’s effort was deemed to have crossed the line, despite protests from Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

But Chelsea escaped with a draw thanks to a fine solo effort from teenager Jeremie Boga.

French youngster Boga – who had replaced Lewis Baker at the break – restored parity in the 83rd minute.

The attacking midfielder began the move in his own half, played a one-two with Branislav Ivanovic and shrugged off two defenders before lashing the ball into the bottom corner.
