Chelsea will face Arsenal at Wembley for the Community Shield on Sunday, August 6th at Wembley.

However, before that game, which is worth the first trophy of the new season, the two London clubs will play a friendly tomorrow in China.

According to the Gunners’ manager Arsene Wenger the game will not really be a friendly: “It’s a friendly against Chelsea and that means it is not really a friendly,” – Wenger said. – “There’s always some pride at stake and London desire. It was an interesting game in the FA Cup final. We play Chelsea in Community Shield and early in the season again. We know each other very well. It’s difficult to know how prepared Chelsea will be, it is another test for us.”

Chelsea won the Premier League this season, with an eight points lead over second placed Manchester City. So, Pelligrini said:

“When he wins, Mourinho wants to take credit for everything. I don’t do that myself because when I won the Premier League, I didn’t say a word.”

However, Pelligrini insisted he has a lot of respect for Jose Mourinho despite not being his friend and added:

“I don’t have any problem with him, he’s not my enemy and there isn’t any conflict with him but I differ from Mourinho on all fronts. I have no interest in analysing him as a person.”
