Arsenal and Liverpool have the chance to collect another trophy as they contest the FA Community Shield at Wembley. This should be an exciting match with goals expected in London. Who will come out on top on Saturday?

Arsenal Form

Arsenal finished 8th in the English Premier League. Mikel Arteta’s side improved enough to win the FA Cup and qualify for the UEFA Europa League.

The Gunners won 2-1 against Liverpool in the Premier League before beating Man City 2-0 in the FA Cup semifinals. They lost 1-0 at Aston Villa but finished their league campaign with a 3-2 win against Watford.

Arsenal’s last match was a 2-1 win against Chelsea in the FA Cup final. The Blues scored in the 5th minute but two goals to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang overturned the deficit.

Arsenal Team News

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno returned rom injury in Arsenal's 4-1 pre-season win over MK Dons. With defenders Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi and Pablo Mari injured we could see new signing William Saliba start. 

Ainsley Maitland-Niles should start on the left wing after seeing offers from Wolves turned down. Brazilian forwards Gabriel Martinelli is injured and new signing Willian might make the bench.

Midfield is an issue with Dani Ceballos not an Arsenal player for now,. Lucas Torreira, Mateo Guendouzi and Mohamed Elneny all linked with moves away from the club. It remains to be seen who partners Granit Xhaka in central midfield.

Playmaker Mesut Ozil have fallen out off favour and could be shipped out of the club. 

Liverpool Form

Liverpool bounced back from the 2-1 defeat against Arsenal with a 5-3 home win against Chelsea. It was a memorable match with Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on target.

Jürgen Klopp’s side ended the season with a 3-1 win at Newcastle. The Reds fell behind in the 1st minute but hit back with goals to Virgil van Dijk, Divock Origi and Sadio Mané.

Liverpool have played two friendlies, a 3-0 win against Stuttgart and 2-2 draw against Salzburg.

Liverpool Team News

Centre-back Virgil van Dijk suffered a head injury against Salzburg but should be fine to start. Midfielder Jordan Henderson is back in full training but might not be risked from the start.

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t feature in the friendlies and are doubtful. Neco Williams is ready to deputise at right-back.

With Georginio Wijnaldum's future is up in the air, Rhian Brewster and Curtis Jones could be a surprise starters against Arsenal.
