Sports Desk – Arsenal beat Liverpool 5-4 on penalties to win the FA Community Shield 2020 on Saturday at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster, brought on in stoppage time, hit the crossbar with his penalty – the only one not converted in the shootout.
Premier League champions Liverpool are here for the second successive year following a 2019 defeat by Man City, while Mikel Arteta’s Gunners have less than a week of training under their belts.
Liverpool started brightly, but Pierre-Emerick Aubayemang’s superb opening goal gave Arsenal a deserved 1-0 lead by half-time – and it could have been more had Eddie Nketiah taken his chances.
In the second half, the tables turned as Liverpool penned Arsenal in their own box for the majority of the 45 minutes. Substitute Takumi Minamino equalised in the 73rd minute after a clever buildup play with Mohamed Salah. The match ended 1-1 at the full 90 minutes.
