Premier League champions Chelsea beat London rivals Arsenal 3-0 in the International Champions Cup (Asia) match on Saturday.
Batshuayi got a brace after Willian’s opener to give Antonio Conte an emphatic win. Youngster Jeremie Boga, introduced after possible injury forced Pedro off, also impressed with close controls and mesmerising dribbles.
Arsene Wenger’s lads were nowhere near my Blues 😝 ⚽ 👌 💪 🙌 💙
Fabregas kept creating passes that left the Arsenal team in disarray. The Gunners were without Alexis Sanchez whose future at the club is in doubt.
Arsenal’s record signing Lacazette was stranded up front and couldn’t even manage a shot on goal. Batsman had four shots with three of them hitting the target…in the first half alone!
Nigerian star and Chelsea wingback, Victor Moses, also had an impressive game. Can’t say the same for any of the Arsenal players, including Ozil who probably went to China to take the census 😂
Yes, it’s a friendly but Wenger had said before the game no encounter between the sides should be relegated to a “friendly” level.
Both teams meet again in the Cummunity Shield at Wembley before EPL 2017 kicks off.
Chelsea’s preseason continues with games against Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in Singapore.
