Chelsea clinch wins over Barcelona in the Japan friendly on Tuesday with goals from Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley. Chelsea striker Abraham opened the score account for Chelsea in the thirty-fourth minute by pouncing on a mistake by the opponent midfielder Sergio Busquets who was on the way to clear the ball.
While applying pressure by Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, the ball rolled to Abraham who had to just nudge past the rushing goalkeeper to gently place it to the net. Within the next four-minute a futile attempt was made by Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic who showed off his speed and footwork to infiltrate the Barca defense, but only to get a wide. Another of his fiery attempt was also blocked by Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea attained a clear lead of 2-0 with less than 10 minutes as midfielder Barkley picked up a cross in front of the box and swept it past the net.
Barcelona got a free-kick just before the injury time which went wasted as Ivan Rakitic’s shot went above the bar. But he quickly redeemed himself with a consolation goal for Barcelona in the injury time by firing a lightning right-footer that went right into the net.
