foot­ball / 1.00pm / BT Sport 1

In what tra­di­tion­ally forms the opener for the Pre­mier league, this sea­son’s Com­mu­nity Shield (k-o 2.00pm) is a replica of last sea­son’s FA Cup fi­nal, in which Chelsea took on Ar­se­nal, the Gun­ners win­ning 2-1. Af­ter splash­ing the cash in the trans­fer win­dow, both teams have bol­stered their num­bers – Chelsea shelling out for Real Madrid striker Ál­varo Mo­rata, and Ar­se­nal go­ing all out to pick up Lyon’s Alexan­dre Lacazette, also a for­ward. The main man for Chelsea this sea­son, though, may be Cesc Fàbre­gas, with Blues boss An­to­nio Conte want­ing him to be an in­te­gral part of his team.
