Community Shield Form

Arsenal actually have a decent success rate in Community Shields having won 12 of the 19 they’ve played in. Man City have only played in 9 Community Shields and taken home 4 titles in 1937, 1968, 1972 and 2012.

Both Man City and Arsenal will be determined to win the 2014 Community Shield and start off their 2014/2015 Premier League campaign on a high.

Although Arsenal have played in 19 Community Shields, their last appearance was back in 2005 and so they'll be keen to win incase their next appearance isn't for another 9 years.
