Arsenal and Chelsea resume their rivalry at Wembley on Sunday as the FA Cup winners and Premier League champions battle for more silverware in the Community Shield.

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners got the better of Antonio Conte’s Blues on the hallowed turf as they shocked the title winners with a 2-1 FA Cup Final victory.

The two capital clubs have played each other since then – a pre-season friendly which Chelsea won 3-0 in China – but the Community Shield will be a real test of both sides with the 2017-18 season fast approaching.



Sunday’s match should prove too soon for Alexis Sanchez, with the Arsenal forward scheduled to return to Arsenal training this week after an extended holiday following his Confederations Cup exploits with Chile.

Francis Coquelin is out while Shkodran Mustafi remains a doubt for the Gunners, so Wenger may be tempted to shuffle his three-man defense after experimenting with the likes of Mohamed Elneny at center-back.

Summer arrivals Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette will expect to start at Wembley, and there is plenty of competition for places in Wenger’s squad ahead of the new season.



In contrast, Chelsea coach Conte is concerned with a lack of options despite bringing in Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger for big money.

Line-ups

Arsenal XI: Cech; Holding, Mertesacker, Koscielny; Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac; Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette

Chelsea XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Batshuayi, Morata
