Arsenal v Chelsea - Who will take home the Community Shield?

Published Add your comment

This weekend fans will get a taste of what's to come this season when Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Community Shield. In the past this fixture has been a feisty affair, and the latest clash doesn't look likely to disappoint.

The encounter once again sees old foe's Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger battle it out for bragging rights, with the added bonus of some early silverware.

Their relationship has become somewhat more civil since Mourinho's return to the Premier League, but one miss-timed tackle or disallowed goal might see that spark reignited.

Clash of the titans

On paper these teams cannot be separated at the moment, with top talents Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez looking to dazzle in front of their fans once more, whilst Diego Costa and Olivier Giroud are bound to be in amongst the goals. 

Petr Cech will face his old teammates for the first time since his move from Chelsea to London rivals, Arsenal.

He'll surely be looking to prove Mourinho wrong and show that he still has the talent to stand between the sticks of a top Premier League team, and there's no better way to do it than to take the Community Shield from his former club's grasp.

Thibaut Courtois on the other hand will want to show that the Special One has placed his trust in the right hands as he looks to put in another dominant display.

Who wins?

Last season Chelsea dominated the Premier League from start to finish, whilst Arsenal steamrolled over opposition on their way to claiming their second successive FA Cup in as many seasons.

Arsenal are the current holders of the Community Shield, but Chelsea are looking to take that status away and reclaim it for the first time since 2009, making it an incredibly enthralling affair.

The Community Shield takes place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, August 2. Football fans, who do you see winning it this year?
