Having beaten Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final on August 1st, Arsenal will take on title winners Liverpool in the Community Shield.
The traditional curtain-raiser for the season normally takes place the week before the Premier League starts, but this time will be played at the end of August with the new league campaign beginning on September 12th.
As ever, it will be played at Wembley, with a kick-off time of 16.30 on Saturday August 29th.
The game will be played behind closed doors, and with many players currently away on a break before resuming preparations, chances are this will be little more than a training exercise for both teams.
It has been speculated that this will be a chance for Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp to test some of their younger talents on a big stage, with perhaps some experience to build match fitness.
Our last appearance in this fixture was in 2017 when we beat Chelsea 4-1 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
