Batshuayi scores twice as Chelsea beat Arsenal in China

Batshuayi scores twice as Chelsea beat Arsenal in China”

It was a frantic opening five minutes in Beijing, given the circumstances of the shoddy pitch at the Birds Nest Stadium.

Arsenal had plenty of the ball without threatening a comeback in the closing stages and only Ospina's save from youngster Fikayo Tomori on the break prevented a more one-sided scoreline.

The Spain worldwide clashed with the Arsenal goalkeeper as he chased a loose ball in the first half of the match in Beijing and required lengthy treatment from the Chelsea medical staff.

Willian was the first to get on the scoreline following Batshuayi's brilliant swivel and pass.

Both player and club should cut their losses this summer, and Perez should return to a team where he will be loved and worshipped.

Conte said the winger was taken to a hospital for checks and could stay there overnight. As a result, Pedro could not continue so young Ivorian, Jeremie Boga came on in the Spanaird's place.

Shortly after David Ospina had made a double save to deny Willian and Batshuayi, he could do little when the former was fed by the latter and he sent an effort in off the post.

But Monaco have taken their lead from Manchester City signing Tottenham right back Kyle Walker, 27, for a fee which could rise to £54 million. Batshuayi then put the game to bed when he scored his side's third of the game in the 48th minute. Arsenal were all over the place.

The second half got off to a controversial start as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wanted to bring on Giroud amongst his substitutions but the referee found that the France global was not listed on the team sheet.

In the second half Arsenal were expected to pick up the tempo but it didn't quite happen. Cesc Fabregas found Marcos Alonso on the left and the Spaniard beat his man before pulling the ball back for Batshuayi, who finished superbly. Another moment for the Arsenal defence to forget.

But it proved the only real chance for the Gunners in the first period as Conte's side went on to stun Arsenal with two goals in two minutes.
