Mikel Arteta has done a good job since joining Arsenal as their manager last season. He was an assistant under Guardiola at Manchester City before taking up his first managerial job at the Emirates.
Arteta, who is a former Arsenal player, won the FA Cup in his first season with Arsenal. Now he has started his second season with a bang.
Arsenal has now probably beaten the best team in England. Liverpool dominated the Premier League last season but after the Coronavirus break, they seem to be a ghost of themselves. This FA Community Shield win at the very beginning of the 2020-21 campaign will serve as a major boost for Arteta’s side.
Arsenal captain Aubameyang gave his side the lead in the first half with a curling strike before Liverpool substitute Takumi Minamino equalised after the break. The game went into the penalties.
Both the sides converted the spot kicks except for Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster who hit the crossbar. Aubameyang converted the winning penalty to give a perfect start to Arsenal’s 2020-21 campaign.
It is the second year in a row that Liverpool have lost the FA Community Shield on penalties after Manchester City’s victory in 2019.
