Who Wins The Community Shield?

The Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield) is English foot ball's  annual match contested between the champions of the previous premier league season and the holders of the FA Cup at Wembley's Stadium. The current holders are Arsenal,who retained the shield by beating Chelsea in the 2015 match.

This  year's  Community Shield match would be played by Leicester City who are the Premier league Champions of the 2015/16 season and Manchester United who are the FA Cup winners of the 2015/16 season.

Manchester United have won the Premier league twenty times(20) in the history of the. English Premier league. They are favourites to win the community shield. Jose Mourinho was appointed last May to succeed Louis Van Gaal,who was sacked after guiding the club to win their 12th FA Cup.
Mourinho has signed  a couple of players,that includes Zlatan Ibrahomovic who is a deadly striker that is a threat to any defence.
Out of the three matches United played in their pre-season, before coming to the community shield. They won two matches and lost to Borrusia Dortmund. Jose Mourinho's side has the experience and exposure of the community shield,because they have featured in it a number of times.

Leicester City are coming to the community shield as an under-dog . The last time they played against United in the league, it was two draws with two games in the previous season.
Claudio Raineri has signed a couple of players,that includes Ahmed Musa who was formerly at CSKA Moscow . During the pre-season game against Barcelona, he scored a brace despite their loss to the Spanish Champions. The Nigerian Winger is the player to look forward to in that encounter. The Foxes are a strong side and determined team. It was those attributes that won them the league last season.

In concluding this piece, the English Premier League is full of surprises. And anything can happen in the Community Shield. It is either the league Champions who are under-dogs that can carry the day or the Red Devils who can prove once again,that they want to get back the title won last in 2013.
Time will Tell.

Thank You All For Reading.
