This is the type of football match where 'friendly' is nothing but a word. The purpose of the International Champions Cup may be more about player fitness and bedding in new signings than silverware, but Arsenal and Chelsea have a long standing rivalry. And we'll tell you how to live stream it from absolutely anywhere.
Both clubs are starting the new season with new managers in charge and both Arsenal’s Unai Emery and Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri will be looking to set the stage for the start of the Premier League.
Arsenal are entering the match off the back of a 5-1 win against PSG in Singapore on Saturday while Chelsea began the pre-season friendly tournament with a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan in Nice.
Chelsea will be without a number of their World Cup stars including N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, though new signing Jorginho has already impressed teammates and fans alike with his abilities on the pitch. Emile Smith Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi are players to watch on Arsenal’s side.
