Ladbrokes Community Shield Special as Arsenal and Chelsea Face Off
July 30, 2015
The English Premier League Kicks off in a week which means this weekend will see the Community Shield clash. The match is a traditional warm up for the football season ahead and this year will be contested by League Champions Chelsea and FA Cup Winners Arsenal. The Gunners won the Shield in 2014 after upsetting Manchester City and they’re once again outsiders for Sunday’s showdown at Wembley. Arsenal are $2.90 with Ladbrokes to win in normal time while Chelsea are $2.40; the draw is $3.40.

Arsenal Impressive in Pre-season
Arsenal have had an impressive pre-season, triumphing in 2 tournaments. They blooded some youngsters on the way to securing the Asia Cup a fortnight ago before recently claiming the Emirates Cup on home soil. The hosts routed Lyon 6-0 before beating Wolfsburg 1-0 in London. Theo Walcott netted the winner against the German club and if you fancy the speedster to score in an Arsenal win on Sunday, Ladbrokes are offering enhanced odds of $7.
Wenger Winless against Mourinho
Can the Gunner beat Chelsea though? They haven’t with the current coaches of both sides at the helm. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger may not think as highly of Jose Mourinho as the ‘Special One’ thinks of himself, but the Frenchman has never beaten Mourinho’s men. The Pair have locked horns on 13 occasions and the Portuguese manager has collected 7 victories and 6 draws. Will the Blues boss extend Wenger’s winless run or can Arsene achieve a first victory?
Both sides lifted silverware on their last trip to Wembley, with Arsenal emphatically securing successive FA Cups, while Chelsea claimed the Carling Cup earlier in the year. Who’ll be happier at the stadium on Sunday and will you be a happy punter after the result?
