Arsenal Beat Man City On Penalties To Win Community Shield

Arsenal beat Manchester City 4-1 on penalties to claim the Community Shield at Wembley, after Leandro Trossard had equalised in the 101st minute of normal time.

Treble-winners City looked on course to add a fourth trophy of the year to their collection, with Cole Palmer's fine curling shot giving them the lead on 77 minutes. 

But Trossard's last-gasp effort deflected in off Manuel Akanji to send the contest to penalties, where Kevin De Bruyne - on his return from injury - blasted against the bar and Rodri saw his effort saved.

Arsenal were immaculate from 12 yards, with Martin Odegaard, Trossard, Bukayo Saka and Fabio Vieira hitting the net to land a morale-boosting blow for the Gunners in the season's curtain-raiser.
