Arsenal and Chelsea to meet in Dublin pre-season derby

Arsenal and Chelsea will meet in a pre-season friendly at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, the Premier League rivals have announced.

A London derby will take place at the 51,700-seater stadium on August 1 as both sides continue preparations for the new season.

The teams are certainly no strangers to one another after meeting five times during the 2017/18 campaign.

The Gunners drew first-blood, following up their FA Cup final win over the Blues by beating them in a penalty shoot-out to lift the Community Shield in August.

Two Premier League draws followed before Arsenal got the better of Chelsea once again, winning their two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final thanks to a 2-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea also confirmed in the same announcement that they will take on Inter Milan in Nice and Lyon at Stamford Bridge in their other pre-season games.
