Iwobi, Moses Brace Up For Pre-season Clash In China
Two Super Eagles stars, Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses will be at opposing ends when Arsenal and Chelsea face off in China on Saturday.
The game could be seen as a replay of this year’s FA Cup final between both teams, which The Gunners won at Wembley after Moses earned a red card for simulating a clumsy fall.
Iwobi has been impressive for Arsenal in the pre-season as he scored a crucial equaliser for the Gunners in Wednesday’s win against Bayern Munich.
Arsene Wenger is looking forward to the game against Chelsea with keen interest and he says the game is more than an ordinary friendly for him.
“It is difficult to predict but it is a friendly between Arsenal and Chelsea – that means it is not really a friendly,” said Wenger. “There is some pride at stake and a desire to win.
Wenger submits that the match in Beijing will help gauge whether Arsenal will be able to hit the ground running when the new campaign kicks off next month.
