Two scrutinized and new Premier League managers matched International Champions Cup wits Wednesday at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland.

Arsenal’s Unai Emery emerged the winner against Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri, albeit in penalty kicks, after Alexandre Lacazette’s 90th minute goal made it 1-1.

Reiss Nelson sent the ball to Lacazette near the line for the dramatic equalizer. Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger scored from a corner in the fifth minute.

Petr Cech stopped an Alvaro Morata penalty kick in the 14th minute, the kick awarded after Hector Bellerin took down Callum Hudson-Odoi in the box.

The match is Chelsea’s last ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield against Manchester City.
