The Gunners were completely outplayed in the Bird’s Nest in Beijing as they slumped to their first defeat out of the four games.
The team have travelled from Sydney to Shanghai and then Beijing on their tour, and they looked less sharp than the Blues, who were on their first game of theirs.
And Wenger stressed that the tour had finally taken its toll on the team and their performance.

“It was a game of good level where we finally lost well,” Wenger said in his post-match press conference.”I think it was a bit of a combination for us, a good opportunity for me to see a few players that have not played a lot of games.
“We played games with a mixture of youth players and senior players and you could see that we were a bit less mature than Chelsea. It was the last day of our tour and it was quite long and we looked a bit jaded.
