Posted by

Premier League champions Chelsea meet FA Cup winners Arsenal in Sunday’s traditional Community Shield clash to kick off the start of the new English football season, so here’s a best XI of the two London giants…

GK: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea)

One of the best goalkeepers in the world, Thibaut Courtois beats his old team-mate Petr Cech to a spot in goal here.

DR: Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)

Easily in ahead of the inexperienced, though promising, Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin, it’s the excellent Branislav Ivanovic at right-back.

DL: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

One of the most solid left-backs in Europe, Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta is another Blues player to get into this Community Shield combined XI.
