Arsenal crush Chelsea 4-0 in friendly


Arsenal beat Chelsea 4-0 in a friendly at Camping World Stadium in Orlando (Florida, USA) on Saturday, with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Albert Sambi Lokonga . Well served by Granit Xhaka, Jesus opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a nice lob against Edouard Mendy, before Martin Odegaard doubled the lead in the 36th, after a pass from Gabi Martinelli. Mason Mount nearly deceived Aaron Ramsdale in the 49th minute with a powerful shot that hit the post just before halftime.

Finding himself on the rebound after a double save from Mendy, Bukayo Saka brought the score to 3-0 in the 65th minute, despite a slight offside. Abandoned by the defense of the Blues, Albert Sambi Lokonga scored the last goal of the game in the 92nd, on a header after a cross from Cédric Soares.

Winners of the very symbolic Florida Cup, Mikel Arteta’s men especially showed greater desire than the Blues and took advantage of their defensive mistakes. It’s the end of the American tour for the two clubs, which return to Europe to play a last friendly before the resumption of the English championship on August 6: Chelsea will face Udinese on July 29, while Arsenal will host Sevilla on July 30.
