    Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea (6-5 on pens)


    Not long until Arsenal open their Premier League campaign at home to champions Manchester City on 12 August.

    The Gunners are off to Stockholm next to meet Lazio on Saturday while Chelsea are at Wembley on Sunday to face City in the Community Shield.

    Will Callum Hudson-Odoi feature? Let's hope so.

    Until next time...

    Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

    Great entertainment for the 40,000 or so inside the Aviva Stadium.

    Who will win the penalty shootout?

    It's about to begin.

  17. GOAL - Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

    Alexandre Lacazette

    Last kick of the game!

    It's been coming and Alexandre Lacazette diverts the ball over the line inside the six yard area after a super cross by Reiss Nelson.

    Lacazette didn't know much about it but it means this thoroughly entertaining game will be decided by a penalty shootout.

  18. Post update

    Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea

    Nine Chelsea players behind the ball. Arsenal are camped on the edge of the Blues penalty area. Three minutes additional time.


    Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea

    Arsenal should be on level terms but what a stop by substitute keeper Marcin Bulka to deny Alex Iwobi who cannot believe he has not equalised. The strapping Polish stopper sticks out a strong hand to deflect Iwobi's first time attempt away. The Gunners are getting closer and closer to an equaliser but they are running out of time.

  20. Post update

    Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea

    It's coming up to man-of-the-match time. Stop the voting now and just give it to Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Chelsea kid has been terrific and he's getting a standing ovation as he is replaced in the closing minutes.
