For the managers of the teams in Community Shield 2015 might be no more than part of the preparation for next season. However, for punters it is the first opportunity in two months to wager on competitive club football.

It will be important for supporters and players as well, since they will face one of their fiercest rivals. Maybe their main rivals for the Premier League season, as the title defenders expect a serious challenge from the upgraded Gunners.

Knowing the two teams’ recent preseason results and performances, it seems that Arsenal is on a roll already. This might hurt their league campaign as a dip in form can happen too early into the season. However, they can easily upset the odds in the Community Shield game on Sunday, as Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea expectedly will start to pick up their form only next week. Arsenal are 2.90 (19/10) underdogs at Bet365, however, backing them might be a wise decision. Chelsea are 2.50 (6/4) favourites, while the draw is available at 3.60 (13/5).

Before the Premier League starts next week, as a warm-up, followers of live sports results can watch the champions taking on the FA Cup winners for the Community Shield 2015 on Sunday.

Arsenal have just finished a virtually perfect preseason. The Gunners have won some minor tournaments like the Barclays Asia Trophy and the Emirates Cup. They also destroyed Olympique Lyon 6-0 with a remarkable performance. And they were also able to sign an elite goalkeeper in Chelsea legend Petr Cech with a move Mourinho didn’t like that much.

It seems that Arsenal were able to maintain the momentum they gained towards the end of last season. However, Mourinho outlined that preseason results don’t mean anything. He said, “Preseason is fake, for good and bad. If you’re bad, it’s fake, and if you’re good it’s fake.”

SkySports.com: Arsenal can see off Chelsea in Community Shield says Paul Merson

He based his statement on last year’s Community Shield game, when the Gunners demolished League champions Manchester City, as many of those who follow sports scores might remember. However Arsenal had a poor start in the season afterwards, and they were out from the title race already in the fall.

Merson agreed with Jose Mourinho about Arsenal having no excuses if they fail to win the league this season. They acquired a world class goalie, and so that they were able to improve a crucial section of the team. Merson emphasized that Petr Cech will be able to save some points for them, and that could be a key factor in title race.

Terry said before Cech left for Arsenal that by signing the world class goalie, Wenger will add 12 to 15 points a season to his team’s tally, online mobile news reported then. Terry expressed that he couldn’t wait for the start of the new campaign. He said, “It’s all about winning the trophy, it’s as simple as that, it’s against our big London rivals, Petr Cech’s gone there as well, it’s going to have a little bit more spice to it.”

He added, “For me even speaking about the Red Bulls game [which Chelsea lost 4-2] has got me fired up a little bit. I hate losing. Everyone in the squad’s the same, so ideally we want to take fitness from the games and prepare ourselves right but, at the end of the day, when there’s trophies on the line we want to go and win it.”
