JAKARTA, Indonesia - Chelsea outclassed an Indonesia All-Stars team 8-1 in the last match of the club's Asian tour on Thursday.

Playing before a large, vociferous crowd at Jakarta's Gelora Bung Karno Main stadium, Chelsea took the lead through a 21st minute penalty by Eden Hazard after captain John Terry was felled by Ferdinand Sinaga following a corner.

The Blues stepped up the pressure and eight minutes later Ramires scored his first of the night, rifling home a pass from Ryan Bertrand. Two minutes later, Demba Ba snapped up the rebound after Indonesian goalkeeper Kurnia Mega could only parry a shot from Ramires.

Terry made it 4-0 at the break with a header in injury time.

Chelsea picked up in the second half where it had finished in the first, with teenage midfielder Bertrand Traore scoring after five minutes with a long shot near the edge of the area.

Two minutes later, Romelu Lukaku made it 6-0, before his long pass following a quick counter attack was finished off by Ramires in the 56th minute.

Lukaku completed the rout with a left-foot shot from inside the area.

The home side fought hard to narrow the deficit and a close-range shot from the left by Greg Nwokolo was deflected by Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas into his own net.

Chelsea's Asian tour had previously taken the squad to Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, where it had defeated a Thai All-Star team 1-0 and a Malaysia XI 4-1.

It was Indonesia's third defeat in pre-season friendlies against England clubs.

Last week it was beaten 2-0 by Liverpool, a week after it was trounced 7-0 by Arsenal.
