The long wait is finally over. After a bunch of pre-season games, long travelling and International duties for few the new season finally kicks off with the usual season opener- FA Community Shield. Defending English Premier League champions Manchester City will take on Chelsea, the FA Cup holder, on Sunday in the match for the Community Shield.

For City, last season ended their long long wait for a Premier League title when they won the title in the most fascinating way possible scoring two goals in stoppage time. City who lost the Community Shield to fierce rivals Manchester United last season will be hoping they can better that result this time around.

Chelsea enter this competition as the FA Cup winners beating Liverpool 2-1 at Wembley last season. This game will mark Chelsea’s sixth appearance in the game since 2005 but they have only won two of the five previous appearances.
