The first silverware of the season is up for grabs as Arsenal the FA cup holders take on Liverpool the Premier League champions in the Community Shield or English super cup.
Arsenal have won the Community Shield in each of their last three appearances, 2014, 2015 and 2017 while Liverpool last won it in 2006.
Kick off: 16:30 UK time
Venue: Wembley stadium
Referee: Andre Marriner
The Gunners have had just a few training sessions in preparation for the match against Liverpool and just a single friendly which they won 4-1 against MK Dons.
As a result, it is difficult to know what side Arteta will pick, particularly when you consider some players have had to quarantine after returning from holiday which was the case for Emiliano Martinez.
The team that will face Liverpool will be similar to the one that played in the friendly against MK Dons with William Saliba set to make his competitive debut.
FA cup hero Dani Ceballos is no longer part of the club and that has paved way for out of favour Mohammed Elneny, who scored in the 4-1 friendly win.
Head to Head:
Arsenal and Liverpool have met 229 times across all competitions. Liverpool have won 89 times, Arsenal 79 times while 61 games have been draws.
Last 3 matches: Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool, Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal(carabao cup) Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal
Saliba, Holding, Tierney;
Cedric, Elneny, Xhaka, Maitland-Niles;
Nelson, Aubameyang, Saka
It’s a tough match to predict, either side could win it depending on the team that wants it more or comes up with a better team selection.
