Chelsea’s Asmir Begovic and Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson, they just can only be described as a London derby, however, both have merely a difference, which is a football is not involved, on the contrary, for two Premier League stars, they”ll face off in a game of Virtual basketball.
The duo were selected to take part in the third clash of an NBA 2K17 celebrity gaming tournament, which has already seen Erik Lamela and Diafra Sakho advance to the quarter-finals. So there really was everything to play for and as you can see, the pair don’t go easy on each other as they battle it out to become champion. NBA 2K17 The Arsenal and Chelsea stars prepare to do battle.
As soon as the game gets underway, Jenkinson, who picks the Toronto Raptors, appears to be the slightly better player and takes an early lead. But Begovic, who humorously picks the San Antonio Spurs, pegs him back and eventually sees himself go ahead – for a very short amount of time, that is.
The Arsenal defender then steps up his game and storms into the lead to win the grudge match 47-34 – and we have to say, it’s well deserved. And if Lamela can do the business over Sakho, and of course, Jenkinson can keep his run of form going in the quarters, then we could be gifted with a north London derby.
