The return of English football is here as Arsenal and Manchester City battle it out in the Community Shield on Sunday.
Man City, fresh off a treble winning season, are looking to win a seventh Community Shield title.
They are favorites to win the match, especially judging by their recent 8-0 winning record against The Gunners.
If Arsenal win on Sunday, they go joint second with Liverpool (17), while Manchester United remain the most successful team.
The annual curtain-raiser to the English top-flight campaign promises to be a thriller. Who’s your money on?
Arsenal finished five points behind Pep Guardiola’s men last season and need to find a rare win against their rivals.
Arsenal have appeared in the Community Shield on 23 occasions, winning 16 times and have only lost 2 in their last 10.
Three of the last six Community Shield matches have ended 1-1 after 90 minutes but that is not likely here.
