Arsenal has won the Community Shield at the expense of Liverpool for the sixteenth time, the traditional meeting between the national champion and the winner of the FA Cup.
At Wembley was 1-1 on the scoreboard after 90 minutes, after which cup winner Arsenal took the penalty better than champion Liverpool.
Liverpool started the game strongly and Virgil van Dijk soon hit goal, but his goal was disallowed for offside. Shortly afterwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit the far corner on behalf of Arsenal.
After that, Liverpool, where Georginio Wijnaldum also had a base position, had the upper hand, but only after rest did it become 1-1 thanks to Takumi Minamino. The Japanese got the ball off his feet and scored cool.
In the sequel, Arsenal stood firm, after which the Gunners used all the penalties and substitute Rhian Brewster, who was brought in specially for the series of penalties, shot hard on behalf of the Reds and over the bar.
