Chelsea were without Eden Hazard, and were looking a bit threadbare after a poor transfer window, with even new man Alvaro Morata on the bench.
Arsenal started well, and Alexandre Lacazette was the man who managed to get all the plaudits from fans, with the majority of them praising him for his efforts – especially when he hit the post.
Both sides had their chances, with Pedro forcing a good save from Petr Cech, and while it is only a pre-season game, there was plenty for both sides to play for, including London pride, and Chelsea came in for some stick when Willian was booked for diving.
Of course whoever wins will get the bragging rights, but the majority of people won’t take it too seriously – and the first half was a fairly boring affair, with the best thing coming in the shape of the Lacazette chance that hit the post.

Lacazette was throughout my favorite striker during his exploits in Ligue Un; definitely one of the signings of the season. #AFC

Pogba vs Lacazette this season to see who hits the bar/post more. My money is on Pogba tbh

Gooners must look at that line up and be like . Lacazette doesn’t transform the team much. #CommunityShield
