Arsenal Defeats Man City to Win Community Shield

385Views 0Like

Arsenal won the Community Shield by defeating Manchester City in a penalty shootout. The final score was 4-1 after a 1-1 tie during the match on Sunday. Arsenal’s Leandro Trossard scored a goal that bounced off another player and went in, making it a tie game with only 11 minutes left in the extra time. Before that, City’s Cole Palmer had scored a great goal to put them ahead late in the second half at Wembley.

During the penalty shoot-out, City’s Kevin De Bruyne hit the crossbar with his shot, and Aaron Ramsdale, Arsenal’s goalkeeper, saved a shot from Rodri. Fabio Vieira then made the winning penalty kick, giving Arsenal the victory in this annual opening match for the Premier League season.

Arsenal’s players were very excited and happy about the win, which was more intense than what’s usually seen in a friendly match. Their celebration showed how much they had been through difficult times since they missed a big chance to win their first championship since 2004.

“It feels great. It doesn’t get much better than winning a trophy at Wembley against the best team in the world,” Arteta said. “We are here to win trophies for this club. Seeing so many happy and proud people is great.”

“We are disappointed. We would love to win today. Manchester City is a good team but sometimes you lose. In the end we could not do it, their penalty takers were better than us,” City boss Pep Guardiola added. City accomplished something historic by being only the second English club to win the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup all in one season last year.

Manchester City secured their fifth Premier League title in six seasons, leaving Arsenal behind. Despite Arsenal holding an eight-point lead in April, they ended up five points behind the champions.

With new signings like Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Jurrien Timber, Arsenal wanted to prove themselves against City. They played aggressively and urgently, almost as if it were a championship match.

While Arteta and his team celebrated on the field, they should remember that winning the Community Shield usually doesn’t lead to winning the Premier League title, which has happened only once since 2011. Arsenal spent a significant amount of time leading the table last season but still fell short. Arteta admitted that stopping the champions will require an extraordinary number of points, especially since City is aiming for a record-breaking fourth consecutive title.

Arteta must have been pleased with Rice’s composed performance after his move from West Ham for £105 million. Timber, another new player, played well as a left-back, but Havertz missed crucial chances to give Arsenal the lead.

Havertz is expected to lead Arsenal’s attack while Gabriel Jesus recovers from knee surgery. Unfortunately, Havertz didn’t have the best debut with his new club. City’s new player Mateo Kovacic showed energy in his debut after moving from Chelsea, but Josko Gvardiol couldn’t play due to his recent arrival from Leipzig.

Cole Palmer replaced the anonymous Erling Haaland in the second half and scored a goal in the 77th minute. City executed a fast break, and Palmer’s excellent shot found the corner of the net. Due to new time-wasting rules, there was a significant amount of added time, and Arsenal managed to equalize 11 minutes into that additional period. Leandro Trossard’s shot deflected off a City defender and went into the net.

Arteta celebrated as if Arsenal had won the league, and his emotions were evident again when Fabio Vieira scored the winning penalty, igniting the excitement for the upcoming title race.
