Premier league side, Arsenal, waited nine years to win a title and two came in less than six months for them as they beat Manchester City three nil to claim the 2014 Community Shield.
The Community Shield heralds the beginning of a new Premier league season. It is the competition played between the winners of the previous season’s Premier league title and the holders of the FA cup.
Arsenal won the FA cup last season while Manchester season claimed the Premier league title.
This is the first time Arsenal would be winning the Sheild since 2004 and the victory should give them plenty of belief before they start their top-flight campaign against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Arsenal took the lead through Santi Cazorla’s angled shot and added to that when Aaron Ramsey drove in a strike to finish a counter-attack.
Arsenal’s second goal came when Yaya Sanogo latched on to a Sanchez pass and held the ball up before laying a pass across for Ramsey, who expertly controlled and powered in a shot.
When City threatened a comeback, Arsenal scored a third. Giroud picked up the ball 25 yards out and sent a dipping strike over Caballero to effectively end the game as a contest.
