Moses scores but Arsenal edge Chelsea to lift Community Shield

And the Gunners eventually won the game on penalties after Thibaut Courtois and Alvaro Morata missed their spot-kicks.

Watch that and Arsenal's trophy lift below... With the scores level at full-time, the match went straight to penalties and Arsenal triumphed using the ABBA system.

Club record-signing Lacazette almost opened his account at Wembley when he curled an effort from inside the box following a counter attack but it rattled off the woodwork.

Following in the sequence, Gary Cahill put an elbow in Per Mertesacker's forehead that left BFG bloodied and had to be substituted off for the match.

Chelsea thought they should have had a penalty when Willian tumbled in the box after a tussle with Hector Bellerin, but the former was booked for simulation, harsh given that he essentially tripped over his own feet. It seemed the Brazilian kicked his own leg which caused him to lose his balance.

Victor Moses' strike soon into the second half was cancelled out by Sead Kolasinac's header eight minutes from time.

"It was just a question on the bench of whether we could come back or not".

Trump on jobs report: 'I have only just begun'
The number of women of this age and older who reported having jobs rose by 14,000 from June and by 66,000 from a year earlier. Unemployment in Windsor jumped to 6.2 per cent last month, up from 5.2 in June, mainly due to more people looking for work.

Courtois was called into action again, saving excellently at full stretch to deny a fierce long-range effort from Granit Xhaka. The Belgian stopper got a crucial fingertip to the ball to prevent Arsenal equalising.

The Gunners' equaliser came moments after Pedro was sent off for a tackle from behind on Mohamed Elneny and was no less than Arsenal deserved after Alexandre Lacazette hit the post in the first half. Pedro chose to try his hand at defensive duties and launched himself studs up into Elneny's ankle to result in a red card.

The Chelsea manager said: "He is one of our best players to take a penalty". After this each team takes two in a row until there is a victor.

That gave Arsenal the initiative and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored before Olivier Giroud netted the decisive penalty.

It is seven years since the Community Shield winners last went on to win the Premier League.

It was a dramatic end to a dramatic game.

Pedro was due to start the game wearing a protective mask after sustaining a facial injury in a pre-season friendly against Arsenal in Beijing.
