Arsenal won their first piece of silverware of the season this afternoon, beating Chelsea 1-0 in the Community Shield final.
Following a very strong second half of the 14/15 campaign, Arsenal fans are beginning to believe this could be the year they finally reclaim the Premier League title.
Today’s performance will serve as extra encouragement for Gooners, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s superb 24th minute goal the difference between the two sides.
Incredibly, today marked the end of Jose Mourinho’s insane dominance over his rival Arsene Wenger, finally beating the Portuguese manager at the 14th attempt.
Arsenal debutant Petr Cech produced a fine display against his former team, keeping a clean sheet after making a fantastic save to deny Oscar.

No big deal for Chelsea but psychologically for Arsenal to beat Chelsea can only help them going into the new season.

Petr Cech is an absolute class act. Walked around shaking hands with his former teammates, then went to celebrate with his new ones. #AFC

Anyone saying this is meaningless should look at John Terry and Jose Mourinho's miserable faces

Formidable for Wenger to come into the new season with his first win vs José. Illuminating confidence, could be a victorious season for him.

Yes, a friendly, but Falcao still not looking any closer to a competitive level than he did during a dismal Copa America.
