Match Commentary

93' FULL-TIME: A friendly it might be, but both sides were desperate to win and played with admireable determination. Chelsea were the better side; quicker, stronger and more direct. Arsenal can take a lot of pluses from the match, but face a tough challenge to catch Chelsea again this season.
93' SWP dances past Cygan, but Cole is quick to get back and rob the little winger. Fabregas gives the ball away to Cole, thirty yards out, but Lauren is alert enough to slide in and clear for a corner.
92' CHELSEA SUB: Geremi on, Lampard off. A meaningless substitution, with only seconds remaining.
