While Chelsea beat Fulham 8-2 in a behind closed doors friendly game, Arsenal beat Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers in Australia before heading to Shanghai. There they beat Bayern Munich on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Chelsea and Arsenal will now face off at the Bird Nest Stadium in a friendly match in Beijing.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned that the game against rivals Chelsea wouldn’t be taken as a friendly.

He said: “It’s difficult to predict but as Koscielny said, it’s a friendly between Chelsea and Arsenal. That means it’s not really a friendly.

“There is always some desire to have superiority. We played them in the FA Cup, we play them in the Community Shield and then again early in the season.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
