The Arsenal of Arsène Wenger is the team that has won the last two titles contested in England. The affirmation is entirely true, since it finished the course 16-17 heaving the FA Cup and begins the 17-18 conquering the Community Shield after defeating to Chelsea in the batch of penaltis.

The 'gunners' already have won fifteen times the mentioned title, remaining to only two of the Manchester United, that has won it until in 17 occasions. The 15º arrived in Wembley this Sunday after a really entertained party that it had to decide from the eleven metres -after the 1-1 final- and with a new format.

After the established order in the draw, both teams make two launchings each one -one after the another, as always-. The novelty is from the third. In this case, the Arsenal began launching the first penalti, but went Chelsea the one who invested the turns and launched his respective third and chamber. That is to say, the ones of Conte carried four penaltis launched by only two of the ones of Wenger. 

And it went precisely in this series of two penaltis consecutive that Chelsea lost all his options to win the party. Courtois Commanded it to the clouds and Morata wanted to apurar so much to the stick that his shot left was. Chamberlain And Giroud did not fail and the Arsenal carried the prize. 

Pedro, an expulsion that changed it everything

After a first-half trepidante and that finish without goals of surprising form, Chelsea advanced at all more go back of changing rooms after a series of refuse in the area of the Arsenal that finish with an unappealable shot of Moses, that beat to a Cech a so much dubitativo.

The ones of Conte began to dominate thanks to the physical deployment of his players, but as it is used to to be usual in the Italian technician, commanded to delay the lines to fault of 20 minutes for the end. It touched to defend and not risking. And clear, that was his conviction. Although it was Pedro the one who changed it all -alas for his team-. An unnecessary entrance by behind on Elneny commanded him to changing rooms expelled... And in this same action went to empatar Kolasinac of head. 

The Arsenal had options to mark the second, as well as Chelsea after a finish of Morata -acting- to centre of Cesc that it went by little. But the 90 minutes finish in tables (1-1) and the penaltis served to top to the Arsenal.
