Video: Arsenal and Chelsea players freestyle together

Saurav Kapoor / 21 January 2016

Who can forget Arsene Wenger’s shove on Jose Mourinho or the Adebayor, Anelka and Mikel incident in the 2007 League Cup Final or the Lampard- Fabregas clash or more recently, the Gabriel and Diego Costa fight? Arsenal vs Chelsea is a fixture that has always produced some high-tension matches and Sunday’s fixture will probably be the same.

But two players seem to be completely unfazed by that – Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Charly Musonda. Arsenal’s summer recruit Rene-Adelaide and Chelsea starlet Charly Musonda have recorded a football skills video together just days before their clubs face off in the Premier League.

Arsenal-Chelsea clashes have been crucial in the context of the Premier League title since the turn of the decade but Sunday’s fixture is slightly different. It’s a huge match nonetheless, but this time, only one team is challenging for the title-Arsenal. Chelsea may be out of the title race but both sides will be desperate to get all three points. However, the bitter enmity between the two clubs always makes for a feisty fixture both on and off the pitch.


When these two teams last met, Arsenal had Santi Cazorla and Gabriel sent off for them as they lost the game 2-0. The game is remembered more for its controversy and less for its football as even Chelsea striker was handed a three-match ban after the game. This time, around both sets of players, will be hoping to avoid such things and play a proper football match but with Arsenal and Chelsea, you can never be sure.

Despite their teams’ rivalry, the lads have spent an evening showboating alongside each other. From keeps puppies to no-look backheels, heel catches to flicks, they’ve got plenty of tricks up their sleeves.

18-year old Jeff-Reine Adelaide was signed in the summer from Ligue 1 side Lens and has been with the first-team squad for most of the season. Interestingly, Arsenal were linked with Charly Musonda in the summer and maybe Adelaide can help Arsenal with that.
