Liverpool, Arsenal eye Community Shield win at Wembley

English champions, Liverpool are set for a Community Shield showdown with FA CUP winners, Arsenal at the Wembley Stadium.

The match will be played behind closed doors at Wembley with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

The 112th instalment of the annual curtain-raiser will be contested between two of the competition’s most successful sides with a combined 30 victories between them.

The Kops are appearing for the second successive year following a 2019 penalty shootout defeat by Manchester City, but this time as Premier League champions having finally ended their 30-year wait for the title.

Meanwhile, Arsenal finished an eventful campaign on a high note by coming from behind to defeat Chelsea 2-1 and secure a 14th FA Cup triumph thanks to a brace from Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Both teams have played 229 times across all competitions over the years with Liverpool recording 89 wins to Arsenal’s 79 and 61 games have ended in draws so the Kops are expected to have an edge due to the head-to-head superiority.
