Match status: FA Community Shield - Final
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London)
Despite enduring a difficult league campaign last term, the Gunners managed to clinch the FA Cup title to dispel rumors of incompetence amongst the players. In truth, they were awful all through the season, finishing eight on the standings.

With only 56 points from 38 games, Arteta’s men missed out on continental football but squeezed into the group stages of the Europa League via their league cup win. Even though they will be disappointed with last campaign’s display, the Gunners have every reason to be optimistic ahead of the new season.

Prepping up for a potentially intense Premier League run, Arsenal will be gunning for victory over an imperious Liverpool side this weekend, to get off on the right foot. Against a side as strong as Klopp’s, the Gunners will need to put their best foot forward to stand any real chances.

Arsenal vs Liverpool Team News

There is no sugarcoating it – Arsenal were pretty horrendous last season. Beginning the campaign with the experienced Unai Emery at the helm, much was expected from the Gunners as the season took off. However, Arsenal failed to live up to the early hype.

Floundering in the bottom-half of the standings with over 20 games played, the club’s board moved to make a decision. Some terming it a knee-jerk one, as they wanted Emery to be afforded more time to instill his philosophies in the players – the board felt differently.

As we know, football management is an unforgiving job and soon enough, the erstwhile manager was booted out of the club. A familiar face in Mikel Arterta was then unveiled – the former Arsenal player vested with the task of steadying the unwavering Gunners ship.

Thankfully, the Spaniard fared well, leading his favored club to a top-half finish and clinching the FA Cup title. The supporters couldn’t be happier as they saw a flustering campaign turned into a pretty successful one in the twinkle of an eye.

Meanwhile, Liverpool were the top of the pops in the Premier League last season, strolling to success in enviable fashion. Looking invincible at times, the Reds showed their supreme dominance in England, taking every other side to the cleaners.

After a thirty-year wait for a league trophy, the Kop were finally able to celebrate winning the Premier League title. You can imagine the joy that must have been flowing through their veins as they watched their favorite players thrust the trophy into the air in jubilation.

Now, those are pretty much in the past and the challenge for Klopp’s men is building on that success to play out another outstanding campaign. Complacency likely to be an issue for the Reds this season, they will have to guard against it as we kick-off.

Even though the Community Shield is not highly-rated in the country, the impact lifting this trophy can have on any team cannot be underestimated. Without a doubt, both teams will be desperate to get a win here to etch their name on the round-like silverware.
