Arsenal Beat Man City to Lift Community ShieldLatest News, News, Sports Sunday, August 10th, 2014
Arsenal defeated EPL Champions, Manchester City 3-0 to win this year’s community shield, to collect their second silverware in 85 days after going nine years without one.
The Gunners deserved their emphatic win in the traditional curtain-raiser to the new English season with goals from Santi Cazorla after 21 minutes, Aaron Ramsey, 42 and a stunning long-range third from Olivier Giroud just past the hour.
The two sides were without several of their first team players.
But the Gunners, fielding three debutants including £35m forward Alexis Sanchez, were far sharper than City who look like they have plenty of work to do before the start of the new Premier League campaign next weekend.
