Given Manchester City's double triumph in both the EPL and the FA Cup last season, Pep Guardiola's talented squad will now lock horns with Arsenal, the runners-up of the EPL 2022-23, in the 101st edition of the Community Shield.

In the previous season, City narrowly clinched the EPL title from Arsenal with a late surge, then secured a dramatic 2-1 victory over city rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final. The Cityzens further etched their name in history by defeating Italian giants Inter Milan to lift their maiden Champions League trophy, completing an extraordinary treble.

With six Community Shield victories to their credit in 1937, 1968, 1972, 2012, 2018, and 2019, Manchester City boasts a formidable record in the competition. However, they approach the match having endured consecutive losses in the last two Community Shield encounters, falling 3-1 to Liverpool in 2022 and 1-0 to Leicester City in 2021.

In contrast, Arsenal has a rich history in the Community Shield, securing 16 wins and standing shoulder to shoulder with Liverpool as the second-most successful team in the competition. Only Manchester United, with an impressive 21 titles, holds a higher record.
