Back to the football, and although the Community Shield is essentially a glorified friendly, it can be seen as a marker – of sorts – for where a team is.
Chelsea haven’t really strengthened their squad this summer (so far), and with Manchester City not really looking too different to last season as well, Arsenal will surely be starting the season with genuine belief that they are serious title contenders.
And there can be no better way to let the rest of English football know they have genuine title credentials, than by putting on a show against the current champions today.
Friendly or not, this match will no doubt be taken seriously by both teams. Mourinho and Wenger genuinely don’t like each other, and you never get anything easily of a Mourinho team. So for me, if nothing else comes from today’s match, it will be a genuine marker to see whether or not this could finally be Arsenal’s year in the league.
