Arsenal beat Manchester City 4-1 on penalties to claim the 2023 Community Shield at Wembley.
Leandro Trossard had equalized in the 101st minute of normal time.
Instead, they were handed a third straight Community Shield defeat.
Trossard’s last-gasp effort deflected in off Manuel Akanji to send the contest to penalties, where Kevin De Bruyne – on his return from injury – blasted against the bar and Rodri saw his effort saved.
Arsenal was immaculate from 12 yards, with Martin Odegaard, Trossard, Bukayo Saka, and Fabio Vieira hitting the net to land a morale-boosting blow for the Gunners in the season’s curtain-raiser.
