Community Shield : Arsenal v Manchester City – PREVIEW

Arsenal v Manchester City - Preview

The Community Shield is a strange occasion. Within the context of a season it’s essentially meaningless, but it annually benefits from being the first competitive game most fans have seen for a while – it’s a friendly, but it pretends not to be and we go along with that pretence for the sake of our own amusement.

Having finally treated their long-empty trophy cabinet to some FA Cup silverware last season, Arsenal have splashed the cash ahead of the new campaign to improve a squad that could now be capable of pushing for loftier titles.

Sunday’s opponents Manchester City have been surprisingly quiet in the transfer window, suggesting manager Manuel Pellegrini is content with his squad ahead of their Premier League title defence.
