Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a superb goal and netted the winning penalty in a shootout as Arsenal beat Liverpool in the Community Shield at an empty Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

Gunners skipper curling strike gave FA Cup winner the lead in the first half after Super Eagles target Bukayo Saka deliver a lovely pass in the 12 minutes of the game.

However, Liverpool substitute Takumi Minamino equalised after the break after flicked pass to Mohamed Salah bounced back kindly to the Janpanses star to poke home from close range.

There was a quick VAR check for handball by Salah but there was no clear contact shown on the replay.

It is the second year in a row Liverpool have lost on penalties after Manchester City beat them in 2019.
