Another match at Wembley, another win for Arsenal.
On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal beat Chelsea 4-1 on penalties after drawing 1-1 over 90 minutes.
It wasn’t the most spectacular win in the world but we got the job done and all four of our penalty-takers – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Nacho Monreal – found the back of the net with ease.
The win should give us some belief going forward, which, after finishing fifth last season, we need.
We also got to see the best of some of our new signings – Kolasinac scored his first goal – as well as the worst of our tactical decisions.
However, it’s all a learning curve and it looks as if we’re approaching somewhere near ‘ready’ for our first Premier League match against Leicester on Friday.
With one or two new signings, we might actually look pretty convincing. Although, don’t we always say that?
So, what did we learn from Arsenal’s Community Shield win over Chelsea?

That’s nine wins in our last nine visits to the new Wembley.
We may joke about it being our ‘home’, especially since it’s now technically Tottenham’s home for the time being, but we can’t seem to lose there.
