Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea FC LIVE! Abraham, Xhaka, Havertz goal; Friendly match stream, latest score updates today


The two London rivals face off this afternoon in a pre-season charity friendly which will likely still have a bit of bite.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are competiting in a mini pre-season round robin tournament called the Mind Series.

Funds raised from the three games will be split between mental health charity Mind and the clubs’ respective foundations.

With the new Premier League season less than two weeks away, both Mikel Arteta and Thomas Tuchel will look to give their players a good run out and blood some new signings.


Arsenal’s new £50million signing Ben White will look to feature after his first training session, while Nuno Tavares and Albert Sami Lokonga should be on show.

Chelsea, who have been less busy in the transfer market, will hope to give N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz minutes.

Ouch, that was painful viewing.

Bellerin, who has just comes on, picks out Abraham as if he’s already signed for Arsenal. Not one the Spaniard will want to watch again.
