• Chelsea comes to this Community Shield (the English Supercup) as the EPL champions while Arsenal won the FA Cup last season.
• Chelsea has won 5 of the last 7 London derbies against Arsenal.
• Arsenal has been perfect at this preseason, winning their 4 friendly games while Chelsea has won 4 of their 5 summer friendlies, beating teams like Barcelona or PSG after a penalty shootout.
• In the last decade, Chelsea has won 2 Community Shields while Arsenal won the last season Supercup.
• Both teams look ready for the EPL kickoff next week and we should expect a tight London derby today. Chelsea is a more competitive team than Wenger’s team, and Arsenal doesn’t beat their neighbours since 2011, so we should pick the Blues here.
