English Community Shield: Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview, Betting Tips and Prediction
Arsenal take on Chelsea this Sunday in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium. Arsenal are in excellent form over the past few months, winning their last five matches across all competition. Arsenal are in such strong shape that they have thrashed Lyon 6-0 at the Emirates last week and defeated Everton 3-1 in Singapore. The team have also finished third in the Premier League last season and defeated the Manchester City 2 – 1 in the Community Shield last season. Arsenal have also maintained a good record in the Community Shield competition, winning the competition thirteen times.
Chelsea have played terrible football in their pre-season games, losing four of their five games in all competitions. Still, the team are a lot more prepared and in much better shape compared to Arsenal, as Chelsea have remained unbeaten in their last eight games against Arsenal in all competitions. Chelsea have also won the Premier League last season and have registered four victories in the Community Shield.
Both teams will miss some of their star players in this match. Arsenal are playing without Alexis Sanchez, David Ospina and Danny Welbeck, while Chelsea will miss Diego Costa in this match due to hamstring injury suffered in a friendly against Barcelona.
It’s very difficult to predict the outcome of the match as both sides have the potential to win this game. Both sides are expected to play attacking game in order to win this game. We predict the total goals scored in this match will be Over 2.5.
