Arsenal celebrate winning the shootout.[check details here]


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.
