Highlights and penalties from Arsenal’s win over Man City in the Community Shield

Well us Arsenal supporters expect a bit of drama in our lives when supporting the Gunners, and so it proved yet again in the Community Shield at Wembley yesterday.

There were many chances for Arsenal, with Havertz coming close a couple of times, but it was a 0-0 stalemate at half-time, and when Palmer (who replaced the disappointing Haaland) finally put Man City ahead deep into the second half, it looked like the Gunners were going to be beaten by the Treble Winners once again.

But the we got our usual drama in the dying seconds of added time, in fact in the 100th minute, when Trossard got a wicked deflection to equalize and the game went to penalties.

City were unexpectedly awful, but the Arsenal players were very cool and Fabio Vieira scored the final winning spotkick….

  1. The highlights are:-
    1) Arsenal produces more quality chances.
    2) Timber gives the same impact of a certain Chilean joining Arsenal from Barcelona. (Sanchez)
    3) The 4: 2 : 3 : 1 formation is the formation Arsenal should use to starts big games.
    4) Havertz is going to be massive for us when he’s fully integrated.
    5)Raya pending arrival is having a positive effect in keeping Ramsdale honest.
    6)Rice plays excellent with Partey in midfield.
    7)Arsenal plays with aggression and was willing to take the game to the Citizens.
    8)There is a case for atleast one more signing for the grueling campaign.
    9)Maybe it’s best for all parties for Tierney moves on.
    10)Tossard deserves to start the next game.

    1. I hope your number 4 will be correct. I see a player who is slow, not strong, not a finisher and not creative. The current player I am interested the most to see how he will unfold.

  2. Havertz IS not slow. If toi watch the game he was impressive. Physically, he IS there, technically also. He will integrate really well in the team sooner.

    1. Because he’s not as good as everyone makes out Ken , apparently he’s world class and any top team in the prem would love him as their LB ,
      Still waiting for those top teams to come in with their bids .
      It says something when the genius plays 2 RBS before him or even Zinchenko the midfielder.
      Time to sell while he’s not actually injured

    2. Ken
      You can only motivate yourself for so long, it is clear as day the Scottish is not a part of the gaffer plans.
