Arsenal beats Chelsea 1-0 in Community Shield at Wembley

BY foxsports • August 2, 2015

LONDON (AP) Arsene Wenger finally earned his first win over Jose Mourinho on Sunday as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's first-half goal gave Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the Community Shield.

Oxlade-Chamberlain received the ball on the right edge of the area in the 24th minute and cut inside Cesar Azpilicueta before hitting a left-footed shot inside the top far corner to decide the traditional curtain raiser between last season's Premier League and FA Cup winners.

Wenger had not beaten the Chelsea boss in 13 previous meetings - a rivalry stoked by plenty of verbal barbs between the two - and the Arsenal manager may see this win as another sign that his team is finally ready to challenge for the Premier League title again when the season starts next week.
