These days there are a lot of rivalries, but over recent years Chelsea and Arsenal have developed a particularly intriguing one, with players, fans and even managers joining in. Which should add to the atmosphere at Wembley this year in the Community Shield.
Chelsea and Arsenal have qualified for the competition by winning the Premier League and FA Cup respectively.
Jose Mourinho already kicked off his mind games by commenting on Wenger earlier in Pre-Season. However, in terms of players Chelsea have looked good during their pre-season winning all four of their games two in 90 minutes and two on penalties. During the Pre-Season, Eden Hazard and Fabregas particularly impressed.
Over the course of the summer Chelsea made two big signings in the form of Falcao and Begovic, the latter of which allowed for Petr Cech to leave to Arsenal.
Many consider Arsene Wenger's acquisition of Cech as one of the best signings this summer. During their pre-season Arsenal played in both the Barclays Asia Trophy winning the final against Everton and the Emirates Cup of which they also won. As Cech arrived, Szczesny left (on loan) to Roma. Which could be the signal that Cech's first competitive game for the gunners will be against his old club.
We're predicting: 3-2 to Chelsea.
