Arsenal Defeats Chelsea In The Community Shield

Spanish winger Pedro returned to Chelsea training at the club's Cobham facility on Wednesday

Premier League champions Chelsea and FA Cup winners Arsenal played three times last term, in matches which shaped their seasons.

"We want to be united and together throughout the season".

"Every game is a battle in the Premier League, like today".

But Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois blazed his kick over the crossbar followed by striker Alvaro Morata also missing.

Nigerian worldwide Victor Moses had opened scoring for Chelsea, a minute into the second half, after the first half had ended goalless.

But then Conte was denied the double in his first season as Blues boss when Arsenal won May's FA Cup final 2-1.

China ups rhetoric in increasingly tense standoff with India
The law is on our side, this is accepted by all other countries and if talks are to take place, both sides must pull back troops". On Thursday, the External Affairs minister spelt out the government's stand on the issue in Parliament .

Despite being without the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal was the first to threaten, Danny Welbeck heading straight at Courtois.

Although not all Chelsea fans saw this as redemption: an FA Cup and a Community Shield are not exactly the same thing. None of the Arsenal players faltered with their spot kick with Giroud's left footed kick sent Courtois the wrong way to give manager Arsene Wenger reason to celebrate after extending contract in the summer.

The goal was a wakeup call to Arsenal who came back strongly.

Morata was brought on in the closing stages and the 24-year-old headed narrowly wide late on in what would have been the flawless introduction following his summer arrival from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

While Diego Costa and Eden Hazard will be absent for the game against the Gunners, Chelsea will still have plenty of menace in attacking areas.

Eyes will be naturally drawn to Alexandre Lacazette to see what sort of impact the Frenchman can have against the Chelsea defence, while early impressions of Sead Kolasinic tend to suggest he could prove to be a shrewd signing from Wenger. In the Europa League if we can afford sometimes to rest some players we will do it.

The Gunners pushed for an equaliser, with Arsene Wenger sending on Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for Lacazette and Alex Iwobi.

At that moment Pedro, made a very stupid tackle after which he received the red card.

For Arsenal, this was the third penalty shootout in the Community Shield.

Replays showed the German veteran had lost a significant amount of blood.

The two sides have met in the Community Shield twice before.
