Arsenal “parked the bus” for the entire second half as a 24th minute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain strike was enough to seal a second straight community shield for Arsenal.
Following what was a tentative opening 10 minutes, both teams settled into a pattern and in the 24th minute, Arsenal broke forth and Ozil found Chamberlain in space inside the Chelsea box and the Englishman turned inside Azpilicueta before curling the ball into the corner to give Arsenal the lead. In the second half, Arsenal showed the world that whatever Mourinho can do, they can do as Arsenal spent most of the half camped inside their box. Chelsea dominated possession but failed to create any clear cut chances. Towards the end, Arsenal had two glorious chances to extend their lead but Courtois was alert to thwart both Cazorla in the 88th minute and Gibbs in the 93rd minute.
Arsenal have now won the FA cup and Community shield back to back and Wenger would now have his sights set on the Premier league.
