By on August 2, 2015

Arsenal inflicted a physiological blow to Chelsea ahead of the new season after coming out 1-0 victors in the Community Shield at Wembley this afternoon.

The Gunners started brightly and took a deserved lead in the 24th minute when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cut inside on his weaker left-foot before smashing home a thunderous effort into the top corner for 1-0.

Both sides had chances to add to the score-line with Ramires guilty of missing two good chances for Chelsea while Santi Cazorla and Kieran Gibbs could both have wrapped it up late on for the Gunners.

However, Arsenal held on to secure a narrow win and send a message to the defending Premier League champions that they are serious contenders this year. The game also marked Arsene Wenger’s first victory over Jose Mourinho in 14 attempts.
