Video: Willian Scores Beautiful Curling Goal v Arsenal

Willian scored a beautiful opening goal in Chelsea‘s friendly against Arsenal in Beijing this afternoon.

The English Premier League sides are going head to head at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in a pre-season friendly just weeks before facing up in the Community Shield at Wembley.

As with every pre-season game, it gives fans an opportunity to see some of their new signings as well as some players who want to prove their worth going into the campaign.

But it was a Chelsea regular who opened the scoring – with Willian curling the ball home after selling Nacho Monreal a few dummies:

That’s a typical Willian finish – and one we expect to see from him a few more times in a Chelsea shirt.

Antonio Conte’s side will play two more pre-season games after this, facing Bayern and then Inter Milan in Singapore before returning to England for the Community Shield.

And we’ll expect to see Alvaro Morata and Antonio Rudiger at some point throughout those games.
