.@_Pedro17_ is heading home... #CFCTour https://t.co/nCbQ7FS0mp — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) July 23, 2017The injury scare overshadowed a brilliant performance by Belgian forward Batshuayi before a crowd of 55,618 at the Bird's Nest in the Chinese capital. The victory gave the Blues some measure of revenge against their London rivals after Arsenal stunned Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final in May to deny the Premier League champions the double. Batshuayi shone as Chelsea prepare to be joined by Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, who could make his debut against Bayern Munich in Singapore on Tuesday following his reported 80-million-euro ($92.2 million) transfer from Real Madrid. Batshuayi scored the second of his two goals five minutes into the second half, latching onto a pass from Marco Alonso to fire a curling shot past Ospina from just outside of the area.
Arsenal's own star signing, former Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, had a low-key game. French international Olivier Giroud entered the game in the second half and provided some spark but his early shots were saved or wide. Willian opened the scoring in the 40th minute, beating Ospina with a low drive. Two minutes later, Premier League player of the year N'Golo Kante fed Batshuayi, who beat Ospina again with a left-footed shot from the edge of the box.
