Arsenal beat Chelsea to win Community Shield in new penalty format

Arsenal beat Chelsea to win Community Shield in new penalty format

Chelsea have as expected left out Diego Costa after manager Antonio Conte made him surplus to requirements.

Moses was sent off against Arsenal in the FA Cup final back in May.

"We've had some bad starts in the last four years but we've had intensity in our games and the preparation that's needed to be ready so let's go into the Premier League now with the same discipline, the same spirit and let's see where we can go". Chelsea and Arsenal lined up pretty strong sides that were evenly matched in the first half.

"I don't know if it was a sending off or not but at that moment we were dominating", he added.

"I would like them to stand behind the team as we might go through some very good periods and some not so good periods". I'm not entirely sure what was talked about at halftime, but coming out with a goal was not one of them.

Jack Wilshere will definitely miss the match for Arsenal with a leg injury as will Francis Coquelin and long-term absentees Gabriel and Santi Cazorla.

Sanchez is still regaining fitness after his exertions with Chile at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, while Ozil has been nursing a minor injury.

Club record-signing Lacazette almost opened his account at Wembley when he curled an effort from inside the box following a counter attack but it rattled off the woodwork.

Eden Hazard (ankle) and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko (knee) were both absent.

The sides couldn't be separated at full-time so the 2017 Community Shield was decided on penalties.

Chelsea and Arsenal brought their respective pre-seasons to a close today as the Premier League champions and FA Cup holders contested the Community Shield at Wembley.

Watch that and Arsenal's trophy lift below...

Arsenal have won their last seven games at Wembley - the longest ever winning club run at the ground.

The traditional curtain-raiser pits the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners against each other.
