Chelsea were thrashed 4-0 by Arsenal in a pre-season friendly game at the Camping World Stadium, Orlando.

The result showed the gulf in class between the two sides, as Arsenal seem by far very prepared for the new season.

Arteta boss Mikel Arteta was very pleased with his side’s performance, as the Gunners outplayed Chelsea from start to finish.

Arteta however asked for caution, as he said it was only a test game.

“I’m really happy,” Arsenal boss Arteta said after the game.

“With the performance in general and with the tour.

“The attitude from a club perspective to show here, and all the work we have done and understand how big we are and the amount of support that we get.

“Then obviously the performance today is a really good example again, that we are moving forward, improving a lot as a team, but don’t get carried away. It’s a test match and there are still a lot of things to do to get better.”
