Competition: Community Shield
Market: Arsenal to lift the trophy
Odds: 1/1 @ Coral
FA Cup winners Arsenal lock horns with Premier League champions Chelsea in the Community Shield this afternoon, with the Gunners somewhat fancying their chances of a win given their impressive form in pre-season. Arsene Wenger’s men have picked up great results in their friendlies over the summer, and are hoping such fine form spills out into their competitive games.
However, it won’t be easy given their opposition. Chelsea blew the rest of the Premier League sides away last season, and took four points from their two games against Arsenal. Manager Jose Mourinho boasts a fantastic record against their London rivals, but has played down the important of the clash. His counterpart Wenger is desperate for his side to prove their worth against a top club, so Arsenal are going all out for a win.
The Gunners surprised many by beating Manchester City in the Community Shield this time last season, and as a result Coral are giving odds of 1/1 for the London giants to repeat the feat against Chelsea today, be that by extra time and penalties should the game go the distance.
