Chelsea will face Major League Soccer’s Charlotte FC on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Finally, on Saturday the 23rd, the London derby against Arsenal takes place at the same stadium at 9 pm.
There were no goals in the first half, but there was a lot of aggression from both the teams. In the 24th minute, Reyes gave Kennedy a graceful cut and hit with a changed leg, close to Kepa’s left post. Chelsea’s response came on 28, when Kai Havertz was launched alone in front, and kicked on goal. At 40, Thiago Silva got high after a cross in the field and sent a graceful header into the angle. Well placed, Oscar Jimenez went for it, a partial 0-0 guarantee.
The second half came and Chelsea were able to open the scoring in the end. In a move initiated by Jorginho to the right, Timo Werner kicked twice and swelled over the net. It didn’t take long for America to draw. And the goal turned out to be strange. In the 14th minute, Reece James went back to goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, but sent him against his own goal: 1–1.

In the 37th minute, Chelsea again took the lead thanks to a shot from outside the field by Mason Mount, which hit Oscar Jimenez to the middle left corner. The Blues were close to wide in the 42nd minute with a shot near the post by Emerson. Controlling the match well, the English team had no difficulty managing the end of the game and confirming a 2–1 victory.
