Publish date:

Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz were among the Chelsea stars to react to their 2-1 victory against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. 

Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel made it three wins from three in pre-season thanks to goals from Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham in north London.

Havertz slammed the ball into the roof of the net in the first half while Tammy Abraham restored Chelsea's lead 18 minutes from time with a neat finish past Bernd Leno. Granit Xhaka momentarily pulled Arsenal level, but the Blues fired themselves back into the lead just three minutes later through Abraham.

"We are happy. We are not in the freshest state physically at this moment, this is normal in pre-season, but we still managed to get the win which is very pleasing.

"It was quite an open game, both sides had chances, but overall I was happy with what we created and of course happy to get the win."
