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.”
