Arsenal beat Liverpool on penalties to win Community Shield

Arsenal beat Liverpool 5-4 on penalties to win the Community Shield after the game finished 1-1 on Saturday.

Goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Takumi Minamino left the game level after 93 minutes and sent the teams straight into penalties.

Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster, who Jurgen Klopp sent on for Georginio Wijnaldum after 92 minutes, was the only player to miss a penalty with his effort hitting the crossbar.

It looked like Arsenal, who have won the Community Shield the last three times they contested it, were in for a disappointing day when Liverpool appeared to open the scoring through Virgil van Dijk after seven minutes.

However, the offside flag went up immediately and a replay showed that Van Dijk was well ahead of the Arsenal backline as Andy Robertson delivered in the cross.
