Predicted Arsenal and Chelsea line-ups for the Community Shield

Arsenal and Chelsea lock horns for the Community Shield at Wembley this weekend.

Arsenal and Chelsea lock horns for the Community Shield this weekend, which could be more about the rivalry between the clubs and their managers, as opposed to the chance to win some silverware.

Arsene Wenger will be desperate to get one over on Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who has so far been dominant in matches against the Frenchman.

Arsenal head into this game in decent form from pre-season, which shows continuity from the end of the last campaign.

At one point last year it looked as though the Gunners would put Chelsea under some real pressure and they won the FA Cup comfortably.

It will be very interesting to see the way that Jose Mourinho approaches this game and whether he’s more open or at his typically tactical self.

Chelsea are the Premier League champions and will want to prove it in a match against a side that they are likely to be duelling with over the course of a very long season.

We’ve attempted to name the line-ups that each manager could take into the game, in the traditional curtain raiser.
