Chelsea's tour of Asia lasted a few days longer than Arsenal's, with boss Antonio Conte admitting his players were exhausted by the end of their schedule in relentless humidity.

Chelsea's Pedro was dismissed for a nasty lunge on Mohamed Elneny which led to Arsenal's equaliser while Wenger's side also handed a debut to record signing Lacazette.

"We had some hard moments at the start of the second half but after that we dominated".

Arsenal came from one goal down to snatch the season-opening Community Shield from London rivals, Chelsea, in a penalty shootout at Wembley Stadium.

Manager Arsene Wenger believes midfielder Aaron Ramsey will play after missing training on Thursday due to a "muscular problem", while Francis Coquelin is ruled out.

Moses was sent off in the FA Cup final in May for a second bookable offence and it was reported that the Nigerian worldwide will miss the London derby at Wembley.

Nigeria worldwide Victor Moses stabbed the ball home on 47 minutes for Chelsea, but Arsenal equalised nine minutes from time through new signing from Schalke, Sead Kolasinac.

It was Kolasinac's first goal for the Gunners after joining on a free transfer this summer, and came despite playing in a back three after he replaced the injured Per Mertesacker in the first half.

"Well, I don't know if it was a sending off or not but at that moment we were dominating", Wenger said. New-signing Sead Kolasinac powered a header into the back of the net, but there was still time for Chelsea to nearly snatch victory. Made a fantastic stop in penalties against Alvaro Morata, of all people. The match will be played at 2pm.

A 4-1 penalty shoot-out victory rewarded Arsenal for an encouraging display in the 1-1 draw and Wenger was quick to call for unity in the stands ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester.

Olivier Giroud is named on the bench. And things got worse for the Blues a minute later.

Cahill, scored for Chelsea to open the shootout, which was based on the ABBA format used in tennis tie-breaks. "They have added Bakayoko who is a very strong player, strong ball-winner, similar to Matic, maybe less distant runner but more of an impact player - but certainly they will fight for the championship again".

The two sides have met in the Community Shield twice before.
