Arsenal claimed the first silverware of the new football season by beating London rivals Chelsea at Wembley.

The Community Shield win for the Gunners was decided after penalties when the 90 minutes finished 1-1.

Chelsea took the lead through Moses and just as it was looking as though the West London league champions were going to dent Arsenal’s great Wembley record, Pedro was sent off for a clumsy tackle on Eleneny, before debut boy Kolasinac cancelled out the one goal lead.

Past history of the competition used to see the shield shared between teams but now decided on penalties and this time it has a new rule….ABBA.

With the first team taking the opener, the second side then takes two spot kicks in a row. It didn’t help Chelsea, who had goalkeeper Courtois and Morata both miss back to back penalties to leave Giroud to seal Chelsea’s fate and Arsenal to celebratory ABBA dancing.
