Some Serious Talent On Display As Arsenal And Chelsea Set For Aviva Clash

Irish fans of the Premier League are in for a treat tonight as Arsenal and Chelsea take to the field at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium for a pre-season friendly as part of The International Champions Cup. 

With two new bosses at the helm in the guise of Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri, supporters of these clubs, even supporters of rival teams, will be keen to see how they are shaping up before the Premier League kicks off in about 10 days time.

Both sides have named their starting lineups and they feature a whole host of stars so fans who are attending tonight should expect some very good football on display.

Arsenal will have the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey starting tonight, while Peter Cech captains the side.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will have Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Álvaro Morata lining out while Cesar Azpilcueta returns to captain the side.

Kick-Off is at 8 pm and it’s live on Eir Sport 2.
