Arsenal won Community Shield 2017

Arsenal won the Community Shield on penalties after Thibaut Courtois and Alvaro Morata missed in the shootout.

Gunners new boy Sead Kolasinac had struck late to take the seasonal curtain-raiser to spot-kicks after Victor Moses had looked set to gain revenge for 10-man Chelsea ’s FA Cup Final defeat in May

The Nigeria wing-back, sent off three months ago, rammed the ball home a minute into the second half after Arsenal failed to clear a corner.

But Kolasinac, signed on a free transfer from Schalke, headed home with eight minutes left after Pedro was sent off for a foul on Mohamed Elneny.

With no extra-time, and the new ABBA penalty format in place, Olivier Giroud scored the winning spot-kick.
