Unlike in the FA Cup final when they took an early lead through Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal found themselves a goal down in the Community Shield before summer signing Kolasinac levelled eight minutes from time. The game will go straight into a penalty shootout, but with a different format - an "ABBA" penalty format.

"I'm very happy because we won a trophy that we wanted to win, and because I believe the quality of the game was very good, two teams who gave absolutely everything", Wenger said.

The fierce rivals met in last season's FA Cup Final, with Arsenal running out as 2-1 winners on the day.

We have seen the desire on both part of the field, but nothing happened until the 80th minute of the match. - The last two red cards issued in Community Shield matches have been to Chelsea players (Branislav Ivanovic in 2012, Pedro in 2017). There was no need for such a brutal start, but the Spanish worldwide was pretty reckless.

Arsenal secured full-back Sead Kolasinac from German outfit Schalke on a free transfer while they broke their transfer record by shelling out 52 million euros on French hitman Alexandre Lacazette.

The Bosnian global was a substitution, and he entered on the pitch in the 34th minute replacing Per Mertesacker.

"We showed great composure to come back to the game", Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech said, "then it is penalties and who keeps their cool better". Nothing worth mentioning has happened.

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker Michael Owen has revealed his prediction for the Arsenal v Chelsea Community Shield clash. And then something unusual happened.

Belgium global Thibaut Courtois is a definite starter in goal, although Willy Caballero could be favoured for the Cup competitions during the upcoming season.

Pedro is also a doubt meaning summer signing Alvaro Morata might start in a more withdrawn role behind Michy Batshuayi. - Victor Moses scored his first goal in 27 games for Chelsea in all competitions, since netting against Tottenham in November 2016. They have added Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is a very strong player, a strong ball-winner, similar to Nemanja Matic, maybe less of a distance runner but more of an impact player - but certainly they will fight for the championship again.
