Chelsea lose Community Shield vs. Arsenal but Willian shows good form

Willian was Chelsea's best performer on a disappointing afternoon that showed the Blues' overall rust.

Jose Mourinho finally succumbed to a Arsene Wenger-led side as Chelsea suffered a rare loss to Arsenal, falling 1-0 in the FA Community Shield.

Wembley was bathed in sunshine for the traditional curtain-raiser ahead of the new season; perhaps it convinced some of those in blue that they were still on their summer holidays.

Direct Arsenal see off Chelsea to earn Community Shield win

Arsenal defeated Chelsea via a first half goal from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to secure a consecutive Community Shield title over their bitter London rivals.

LONDON -- Three thoughts from Arsenal's 1-0 win vs. Chelsea in the FA Community Shield.

1. Arsenal win to end Wenger's Mourinho hoodoo

The Community Shield is only a semi-competitive game -- it's not quite a pre-season friendly but not truly a major trophy. Nevertheless, both teams were determined to win this contest, especially with no love lost between the two managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, and the atmosphere on a gloriously sunny afternoon at Wembley was fantastic.

Arsenal's luck against Chelsea could change in the FA Community Shield

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol insists that the Community Shield showdown between Arsenal and Chelsea will be an important match, particularly for the two managers, but as usual, Craig disagrees.

The Community Shield may be the Premier League's curtain-raiser, but Jose Mourinho wasn't all that interested in further raising the profile of the match, as his Chelsea champions prepare to face the FA Cup holders Arsenal on Sunday.

"I think it's in between," the Portuguese manager said in his Friday news conference, referencing the warmup games of the last few weeks. "It's not a friendly like against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Arsenal against Wolfsburg. It's more than that, but it's less...

Rivalry returns as Wenger and Mourinho set for Arsenal vs. Chelsea

The ESPN FC crew debate which side has the best defence in football, if Arsenal are done spending and more.

The Premier League returns next week and to get us in the mood, it's Arsenal vs. Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday. It's a chance to lay down a marker for the rest of the campaign as Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho do battle once again and ESPN FC bloggers Tom Adams (Arsenal) and Mark Worrall (Chelsea) take us through what to expect.

How's your summer been so far compared to Sunday's opponents?

Tom Adams: Let's put it this way: win on Saturday and Barcelona's reign as Europe's...

TOP STORY: City, United join Chelsea chase for Stones

With sources telling ESPN FC on Wednesday that Chelsea have seen an improved bid of £26 million for John Stones rejected by Everton, the Mirror reports that Manchester City are ready to join the race for the 21-year-old centre-back.

Sinclair and Wilson among Premier League's next breakthrough players?

With aging defenders and money to spend, Chelsea have their eye on John Stones, and ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti says it's a necessary investment.
There are big expectations for Liverpool's Jerome Sinclair, left, Chelsea's Bertrand Traore, middle, and Manchester United's James Wilson, right, this season.

Star names and big-money signings may hog the headlines but fans are also frequently fascinated by the young players with the talent to build their reputations at their club. Terry Burton, the former Wimbledon manager, Arsenal head of development and West Brom technical director, tips five Premier League boys to break through to the big time this season and two more who are not far behind:

1. Jerome Sinclair, 18, forward, Liverpool

A lot of people would look at Jordon Ibe as someone ready to make...
