Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was satisfied with the team's performance after they started their pre-season with a 1-0 win over Singha All-Stars.
A Romelu Lukaku penalty was the difference between the teams at the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok.
Mourinho admits he is relishing the prospect of competitive action though when the season opens on 18 August with a visit from Hull City.
"It's just good to be back, but I'm waiting for Hull City, my first match when we play for points," Mourinho said.
"Defensively we were very strong. We moved the ball quite well, but we didn't create many chances.
"We are not sharp at the moment, we have a lot to improve, but it was okay - it was a good training session.
"I'm okay with the game and that performance."
