Lucky Arsenal defeat Man City to win English Community Shield

Arsenal defeated Manchester City on penalties 4-1 to win the 2023/2024 English Community Shield at Wembley Stadium.

Regulation time ended 1-1 , courtesy of late strikes by Cole Palmer for the Citizens and a late equalizer by Trossard for the Gunners.

The game decided on Sunday August 6, 2023 was deadlocked and headed towards a stalemate before youngster Cole Palmer struck the opening goal in the 76th minute.

On as a substitute for last seasons top-scorer Erling Haaland, Palmer received a pass after great work from teammate Phil Foden.

Palmer cut in on his left foot before sending a curling effort past Ramsdale in goal for the Gunners to set up a crazy finale in what was a pretty tight English Community shield game.

Arsenal will press hard for an equalizer which arrived deep into additional time when Trossards shot took a heavy deflection to roll past Ortega to level scores at 1-1.

In the shootouts, Arsenal edged the Citizens to claim the Shield.

The traditional season opener in England, Arsenal have now begun the season with a victory over City , widely tipped to rival them for the title again.

The 2023/2024 English Premier League season will begin this weekend with Champions Manchester City facing newly promoted Burnley in the opening game.
