Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a superb goal and netted the winning penalty in a shootout as Arsenal beat Premier League champions Liverpool in the Community Shield at an empty Wembley Stadium.

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster, brought on in stoppage time, hit the crossbar with his penalty - the only one not converted in the shootout.

 

Aubameyang's curling strike gave FA Cup winners Arsenal the lead in the first half before Liverpool substitute Takumi Minamino equalised after the break.

 

Minamino's flicked pass to Mohamed Salah bounced back kindly for him to slot home from close range.

 

There was a quick VAR check for handball by Salah but the replay showed no clear contact.

 

 

It is the second year in a row Liverpool have lost on penalties after Manchester City's victory in 2019.
