Arsenal boss Wenger defends team selection for Chelsea defeat

Arsenal vs Chelsea

There's only so much you can do coming on in the 77th minute and then playing Shrewsbury in the League Cup.

Chelsea nearly went ahead after six minutes through Willia, but the Brazilian dragged his low effort inches wide of the upright from close range.

Arsene Wenger believes Saturday's exhibition match between Arsenal and Chelsea should not be considered a pre-season friendly because of the heated rivalry between the Premier League clubs. Ainsley Maitland-Niles, used out of position as a right-sided centre-back, coughed up possession to gift Willian an early chance.

Who will come out on top in Beijing? But ultimately we, Nigerians, are still waiting to see a world class Nigerian footballer since Jay Jay. If Arsenal are thinking about challenging for the title there will have to be significant improvement in the defensive side of things and Kolašinac will help bring that improvement. With Arsenal's professionals were involved it was never a friendly match among the players.

Koscielny joined Arsenal for £8.5million from Lorient in 2010 having played only one season of top flight football in France.

The Daily Express suggest Chelsea are set to overtake the Reds in the race for Oxlade-Chamberlain with an offer for the ex-Southampton man in the next 48 hours.

Meanwhile, Conte has conceded that it will not be easy for the Blues to make further forays into the market due to the inflation of the market.

A move would potentially reignite a career in danger of stalling. Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, will be worried at the ease with which the Premier League champions defeated his side.

And while Wenger remains adamant that the player will stay at the club, the Frenchman might just be compelled to sell the player to a direct rival, rather than run the risk of losing him on a free transfer next summer.

"We had some very good moments in the game as well, but we couldn't score".

However, the Nigerian was at his best on Saturday, helping Chelsea to a blistering start in their first outing in their Asian Tour. Boga created a strong impression that he must now dedicate himself to sustaining for the remainder of preseason.

Chelsea uploaded a picture of Morata signing the contract via their Instagram account, which Diego Costa liked.

The Italian also had words of praise for his young striker, and revealed that he was showing steady improvement.
