Arsenal are the 2020 Community Shield winners after beating Liverpool 5-4 on post-match penalties on Saturday.

The Londoners came into the game as the FA Champions, while Liverpool came as the Premier League Champions.

Arsenal Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang game his side the lead in the 12th minute with a volley from the edge of the 18-yard-box.

The Gabonese star celebrated his goal by crossing his arm in the 'Wakanda Salute', drawn from the Black Panther film, an attribute to Chadwick Boseman who died on Friday.

From then on, Jurgen Klopp's men pressed the Gunners in search of an equalizer, but it wasn't until the 73rd minute when substitute Takumi Minamino slotted the ball past Emi Martinez.

The game ended 1-1, prompting post-match penalties, where Arsenal claimed their ictory.

All takers tasked by Mikel Arteta netted from the spot, while Liverpool's youngster Rhian Brewster saw his kick hit the cross bar before flying overhead, the only miss of the 10 kicks taken.
