Arsenal has hit the ground running, like a popular phrase in our political space, which is very encouraging ahead of the new season by beating Manchester City on penalties to win the Community Shield.
In a tight encounter between last season’s top two in the Premier League, Cole Palmer came off the bench to score a wonderful opener for the Treble winners but Leandro Trossard’s late deflected effort sent the game to penalties where Gunners prevailed.
Mikel Arteta’s side had appeared to be on the verge of defeat following substitute Cole Palmer’s sublime opener, but a leveller 11 minutes into stoppage time via Leandro Trossard’s heavily deflected effort rescued a 1-1 draw to force a shoot-out.
he curved a delightful left-foot shot into the far corner 13 minutes from the end.
However, deep into stoppage time Trossard took the contest to a shoot-out when his speculative shot deflected in off Manuel Akanji and Arsenal completed the remarkable turnaround from the spot.
After all said and done, Arsenal won on penalties shootout beating Man City 4:1.
