Community Shield: We Know What We Need To Do To Beat Man City —Arteta

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta has said the Gunners know what they need to do to beat Manchester City in Sunday’s FA Community Shield at Wembley stadium on Sunday.

Treble winners City and Arsenal will get the new campaign off when they clash in the traditional curtain raiser.

Despite trailing Arsenal in most part of last season, Pep Guardiola’s men eventually pipped the North London club to the league title.

They defeated Manchester United in the FA Cup before edging Inter Milan to land a first-ever Champions League title.

Looking forward to Sunday’s toe, Arteta expressed excitement at the prospect of challenging for another trophy.

“We’re very excited to play a final and have the opportunity to win a trophy against a team that is the team to beat,” quoted Arteta as saying

“They were the best team in Europe last season, and we know what the standards are and how we need to win the game, but we’re very excited.

“They’ve shown their consistency over the years and they merit respect from everybody for what they’ve done. If you want to chalkboard for that championship you know the total points you’re going to be needing and that’s unheard of in this league for the last 100 years.

“So that’s the standard and if you want to be there, you know what you have to do.”

Arsenal have won the FA Community Shield 16 times while Manchester City have lifted the trophy on six occasions.
