Chelsea vs. Arsenal: Storylines, players to watch in Community Shield

Chelsea summer signing Antonio Rudiger seen above right with Marcos Alonso also trained

"We want to be united and together throughout the season".

Chelsea look to defend their title this season, while Arsenal aim to reach the summit of the Premier League for the first time in over a decade.

Elneny turned in one of his best performances yet for Arsenal to help Arsene Wenger's side remain in the contest after they fell behind to a Victor Moses goal at the start of the second half.

For Arsenal this season, the target is 85 points and to push for silverware, manager Arsene Wenger has said.

Incidentally, Arsenal had beaten Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Arsenal's front three of record signing Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi moved around fluidly in the first half to create numerous chances.

Diego Costa's continued exile and Eden Hazard's broken ankle mean Chelsea will have a new-look strike-force.

Morata was brought on in the closing stages and the 24-year-old headed narrowly wide late on in what would have been the ideal introduction following his summer arrival from Spanish giants Real Madrid. The Gunners have stuck with the 3-4-3 formation which carried success at the end of last season and are likely to match up identically to their counterparts this Sunday.

The Gunners were forced into a change around the half-hour mark, Per Mertesacker replaced by Kolasinac after drawing blood in an aerial challenge with Gary Cahill, a blow for Wenger, who was already without Shkodran Mustafi and had opted to leave out Laurent Koscielny. And things got worse for the Blues a minute later.

Another summer signing Sead Kolasinac is on the bench, along with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Reiss Nelson, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Joe Willock. Chelsea, on the other hand, have tasted defeat in four of their last six appearances in the final, with themselves and Arsenal losing and winning one apiece in their two meetings since 2005. They have added Tiemoue Bakayoko, who is a very strong player, a strong ball-winner, similar to Nemanja Matic, maybe less of a distance runner but more of an impact player - but certainly they will fight for the championship again.

The official, though, decided that Willian had dived after the Arsenal wing back's miscontrol, but replays showed there to be contact before the Brazilian clipped his own heels.
