Arsenal claimed victory in the Community Shield, beating London rivals Chelsea 4-1 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in normal time. Victor Moses had opened the scoring at Wembley after capitalising on a breakdown in communication among Arsenal’s backline. The Premier League champions held on to their lead until the final 10 minutes of the match when Sead Kolasinac met Granit Xhaka’s free-kick to head home an equaliser. Both sides were unable to find a winning goal, sending the game to penalties and an eventual Arsenal victory.
