Chelsea defeated Arsenal 3-0 today in a preseason friendly played at Beijing’s Bird Nest, China, thanks to a goal from Willian and a brace from Michy Batshuayi.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed after the game that he was satisfied with the intensity of his team’s performance in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal.
“For sure it was a good game,” said Conte.
“It is good to have this type of start but we have to continue to work a lot to improve on the physical and tactical aspect. Pre-season is very important.
