Recent History

It bodes well for Arsenal that the past three Community Shields have been won by the previous season's FA Cup winners and Arsene Wenger's men will be relishing a return to Wembley where they have won their last seven matches in a row following their shock 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final in May.

The victory was only the Gunners' third win in the last fourteen Arsenal v Chelsea fixtures (drawn three, lost eight), although it is worth noting that two of those successes did come at Wembley.

Arsenal perhaps offer value at 9/4 in the match betting for Sunday (Paddy Power) but it is difficult to predict the outcome of a match for which Chelsea are 5/4 favourites after thumping Arsenal 3-0 in a friendly in China recently.
Match Odds:

Goals Galore?

Michy Batshuayi helped himself to a brace in that 3-0 win last month and the 23-year-old could well be given some game time up front at Wembley as new signing Alvaro Morata is struggling for fitness and Antonio Conte appears happy to let Diego Costa leave.

Batshuayi has scored eight goals in his last nine starts for club and country since the start of May and the Belgian is 7/4 to score at anytime with Betfred.

This match has provided goals in recent times as the last three meetings between these teams have produced at least three goals and over 2.5 goals is one for odds-on backers (3/4 with Boylesports), with six of the last eight Community Shields going that way.

Arsenal do have a few defensive issues to resolve as Francis Coquelin and Shkodran Mustafi will miss their clash with the reigning Premier League champions but the Gunners can take comfort from Arsene Wenger's record of six wins in eight previous Community Shield appearances with Arsenal.
