Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winning penalty in the shoot-out as Arsenal edged out Liverpool to win the Community Shield.

Arsenal won their second trophy in August as the FA Cup winners beat Premier League champions Liverpool 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the Community Shield.

Just 28 days after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice to sink Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley, the Gunners triumphed in the new season’s curtain-raiser in north London.

Mikel Arteta’s side was forced to do it the hard way, with Takumi Minamino’s first Liverpool goal having cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 12th-minute opener.
