Arsenal fans expressed their disappointment and anger on social media after the Gunners suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Chelsea in pre-season.

Brazilian forward Willian's curving shot and Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi's brace gifted the victory to the English champions, reports Xinhua news agency.

Jeremie Boga staked his claim for a place in Antonio Conte's first-team squad with a stellar performance against Arsenal at the Bird's Nest Stadium.

Ospina had proved hard to beat until then, denying Victor Moses and then tipping over brilliantly from the same man seconds after saving from Willian.

"But we are still active on the transfer market so let's see what kind of opportunities we can find".

The lead was doubled a minute later.

In the second half Arsenal were expected to pick up the tempo but it didn't quite happen.

Chelsea to make move for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain next week.

Chelsea made it 3-0 shortly after the break, as Marcos Alonso weaved his way into the box before picking out Batshuayi, who rifled the ball into the top corner. Arsenal should be favourites because of their build up, but you can never rule out Chelsea, who are beginning their preparation as defending Premier League champions.

With this in mind two title contenders, Arsenal and Chelsea, are set to face each other on Saturday in the Beijing Community Shield.

In the last five matches of Chelsea, they have won four matches in English Premier League against Sunderland, Watford, West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough and lost one match in English FA Cup against Arsenal. Young substitute Donyell Malen saw his effort come back off the post towards the end, but that was the best it would get for Arsenal.
