Arsenal boss Wenger delighted with Shield win

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was ecstatic after his side produced a strong performance to sweep Premier League champions Manchester City aside 3-0 in the Community Shield, ESPN has reported.

After dominating the opening exchanges, the North London club eventually took the lead on 21 minutes, when Santi Cazorla expertly beat Gael Clichy before firing low past goalkeeper Willy Caballero.


The Arsenal breakthrough failed to spark Man City into life, and it was 2-0 three minutes before half time when Aaron Ramsey found the far corner of the net. Substitute Olivier Giroud confirmed victory with a powerful drive from long range on the hour mark, and his side were cruising from then on.


And after the game, Wenger was hugely encouraged, and hopeful his team could carry that form into the new league season. He said: "Overall, it was a united team performance. Aaron Ramsey's goal was good and it showed that the belief was there - but what I keep in mind is that it was a real team performance. This showed that when the team is focused, we have a chance to win. We want to go into each game with the same confidence and belief."
