Arsenal vs Man City: Community Shield Team News, Line-ups, and More Today

Manchester City and Arsenal will face off in the Community Shield, with both teams strengthening their squads.

The Community Shield is a highly anticipated game that marks the official start of elite football in England. This year, it features treble-winners Manchester City and last season's Premier League runners-up Arsenal, who will compete for the first prize of the new campaign at Wembley.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal's manager, has made some significant additions to his squad this summer, including Declan Rice and Kai Havertz. On the other hand, Mateo Kovacic has joined Manchester City as a replacement for Ilkay Gundogan, leaving Chelsea behind.

While the outcome of the Community Shield does not necessarily predict the fortunes of the upcoming season, it provides an intriguing opportunity to assess the strength of these squads before the start of the 2023/24 league. Stay updated with live updates from the Community Shield at Wembley below:

The Community Shield is always the first match of the season involving top-flight clubs, and we find ourselves here once again before the start of the 2023/24 campaign.

On Sunday, Arsenal and Manchester City will face each other at Wembley to compete for the first piece of silverware of the year. Both teams have been active in the transfer market this summer, as well as towards the end of the previous season, with the Premier League winners and runners-up going head-to-head.

While Pep Guardiola and his team emerged victorious on the pitch, securing the treble, including the league title, Arsenal's Mikel Arteta has successfully convinced Declan Rice to join the club instead of Manchester City. Rice previously served as captain at West Ham.

It is likely that both clubs will be contenders for major honors later in the season. However, their first meeting in the Community Shield could be a more open affair, with the focus on gaining valuable minutes on the pitch and refining tactics rather than the trophy at stake.

Here is everything you need to know before the match.
