The Blues kicked off their pre-season campaign with an entertaining win against Arsenal on Friday. William draw the first blood on the Gunners with the clock reading 40 minutes. The under rated Belgian youngster Michy Batshuayi scored a brace and added one more to his tally within 10 minutes to complete a comfortable win.
The fans in Singapore are likely to see the new signing Alvaro Morata in Chelsea shirt of the first time. The Spanish forward joined the Stamford faithfuls for a record £67m move from his childhood club Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich’s pre-season haven’t gone well in recent weeks. They were first beaten by Arsenal on penalties, before AC Milan run rout on Friday demolishing the Germans by a 4-0 margin. Carlo Ancelotti will be keen to restore some pride with a much improved performance against Chelsea.
