Arsenal beat Chelsea 4-1 in a penalty shootout at Wembley Stadium to win the Community Shield.
The Gunners perhaps had the better of a largely forgettable first-half, although Chelsea felt they should have had a penalty when Willian appeared to be tripped by Hector Bellerin. Instead the Brazilian was shown a yellow card for simulation.
Chelsea started the second-half at a lightning-quick pace and took the lead after 46 minutes, when Victor Moses ran onto a Gary Cahill header and slammed a close-range finish beyond Petr Cech.
Antonio Conte’s side looked as though they would be able to seal the win, but Pedro was shown a red-card with less than ten minutes remaining when he jumped into a tackle with Mohamed Elneny.
And exactly 82 second later, Arsenal were level. Cesc Fabregas was caught playing everybody onside and summer signing Sead Kolasinac powered a header beyond Thibaut Courtois.
The game went straight to a penalty shootout with no extra time, and Arsenal held their nerve to win the Community Shield yet again

Liverpool losing Coutinho, United not adding much to their squad, Chelsea struggling, Spurs new ground. Arsenal vs City for the title? 🤔
