Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have won the Community Shield after a penalty shootout.
The Gunners have started the season off with a victory over Manchester City in the Community Shield. The game ended in a one-all draw and moved straight to penalties, where Arsenal had 4 against City’s 1.
The first goal in the game came in the 77th minute, when a subbed-in Cole Palmer found the back of the net with a stunning strike at the edge of the box.
City were on the path to victory before their expectations were cut short by a strike from another substitute player, Leandro Trossard, who hit the ball with his left foot, sending Stefan Ortega the wrong way after the ball came off Akanji to end at the back of the net to keep Arsenal back in the game with a 1-1 draw.
Arsenal, who had their hearts broken last season after spending a long time at the top of the league but relinquishing the position to Manchester City, allowing the champions to retain the Premier League trophy for the third time in a row, are off to a winning start this season.
Having signed a couple of players to boost the team and sharpen its edge for the task ahead, the Gunners victory over City will serve as a morale boost for the North Londoners to be title contenders this season again.
