Arsenal and Chelsea will meet in a preseason edition of the London derby that will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. It will mark the end of both clubs’ U.S. tours.
The Gunners are looking to make it a perfect five wins in five during what has been a strong preseason run. The victories have included wins over Ipswich Town, Nurnberg, Everton and Orlando City. They will play Sevilla on Saturday, July 30, at Emirates Stadium in London to close out the summer tuneup schedule.
Chelsea are looking to show a marked improvement from a disappointing 1-1 draw against MLS expansion side Charlotte FC in midweek. The Blues needed a late goal just to beat Mexican side Club America before that. Their final preseason match is at Italian side Udinese.
Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates and commentary.

31st min.: Gabriel Martinelli is needing treatment for an injured left wrist coming after a cross that saw him fall on it. They’re taping it up and it looks like he’ll continue.
28th min.: Reports from the stadium is that Thomas Tuchel was not happy with his players during the hydration break.
We’re at the drinks break and it looks like Thomas Tuchel is absolutely ripping into his players.

20th min.: It’s been all Arsenal so far. A Martin Odegaard free kick is tipped over the bar by Edouard Mendy. And the ensuing corner kick is headed over by Gabriel.
15th min.: Goal Arsenal! After a poor Chelsea giveaway, Granit Xhaka intercepts and immediately feeds Gabriel Jesus and he applies the delightful chip over Edouard Mendy. What a cool finish, and another preseason goal for Gabriel Jesus who’s been lighting it up in preseason for the Gunners.

6th min.: Chance for Arsenal! Just moments after William Saliba stuffed Timo Werner on one end., Arsenal broke forward with Martinelli feeding Saka and his shot was stopped by Edouard Mendy.
5th min.: Arsenal are on the front foot. Gabriel Jesus is standing out for roaming all over the field. He’s committed and staying busy early on.
1st min.: We’re off in Orlando. Raheem Sterling committing the early foul on Gabriel Jesus and Arsenal get a set piece to start, but nothing comes of it.

120 mins from kickoff: We could see a Kalidou Koulibaly debut for Chelsea, while Oleksandr Zinchenko will start for Arsenal. For Zinchenko’s sake we hope it’s better than his first attempt at singing in a Gunners kit.
