Chelsea succumb to Arsenal in FA Community Shield

Mohamed Elneny vows to prove he belongs at Arsenal after “my best game” vs. Chelsea

Arsenal claimed some early season bragging rights over London rivals Chelsea with a penalty shootout win in the Community Shield on Sunday night.

He said: "I am staying at Arsenal this season".

Created to prevent a perceived advantage to the team going first, the system sees team A take the first kick followed by team B - before team B go again.

"It was just a question on the bench of whether we could come back or not".

Premier League champions Chelsea were beaten 4-1 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, fans were left surprised after Thibaut Courtois took Chelsea's second penalty in the shoot-out, which saw the Belgium global fire his effort over the cross-bar. Club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette joins Welbeck, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Iwobi and Mesut Ozil as attacking options. "Before the FA Cup, and now the Community Shield".

The Gunners finished fifth last campaign and 18 points off champions Chelsea, which means they will miss out on playing in the Champions League this season.

As it turned out, Arsenal equalised from the resulting free-kick a minute later, new signing Sead Kolasinac heading in Granit Xhaka's ball in.

"Lacazette is stronger every week", Wenger said.

Confused? You are not alone as not even the players seemed to understand. He is the second part.

Conte has spoken out several times over his frustrations about the size of Chelsea's squad and - despite adding Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko as well as Morata - Cahill shared those concerns.

The tough questions on the pitch will start next weekend when the league season begins.

Television pundits including club legend Frank Lampard and former Chelsea manager Glenn Hoddle are both in agreement that Conte must approach the board for funds to buy players if the Blues want to retain their title.

Looking towards Friday evening's opening league match against Leicester City at the Emirates Wenger explained the win was more "an encouragement rather than a disappointment - nothing more than that".

"Obviously we played together and we made a lot of challenges during the training session in the penalty shoot-outs so this is not usually where he shoots".
