A new season of the English Premier League is about to begin, and every team is preparing for it. Arsenal have faced Chelsea as part of their pre-season preparation. However, Gunner boss Mikel Arteta set up the team formation with 4-2-3-1. He played Gabriel Jesus, who joined Arsenal from Man City. On the other hand, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel also played his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation. He deployed his new player, Raheem Sterling, in this match.
However, Arsenal tried to be dominating from the beginning of the match. They created many chances in the first half. So, they didn’t need much time to take the lead.
