Arsenal on Saturday defeated Liverpool 5-4 on penalties to win the FA Community Shield, SATURDAY FLAKES reports.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired Arsenal to their second Wembley triumph of the month as Mikel Arteta's side overcame Liverpool on penalties to lift the Community Shield.
August started with the Gabon forward inspiring the Gunners to a record 14th FA Cup win and ended with him wrapping up a morale-boosting win in the 2020-21 season curtain-raiser.
Aubameyang saw his fine curling effort cancelled out by Liverpool substitute Takumi Minamino as the match finished 1-1, but the Arsenal captain would seal another triumph by scoring the winning penalty in the subsequent shoot-out.
Rhian Brewster missed the only spot-kick as the Gunners won 5-4 on an afternoon that only underlined the need to get their star turn's new deal over the line.
SATURDAY FLAKES gathers that Aubameyang gave Arteta's men the lead by ending a fine team move in style and celebrating with the 'Wakanda forever' salute in tribute to Chadwick Boseman following the death of the Black Panther actor.
Arsenal dug deep after the early opener but their resolve was broken in the 72nd minute when Minamino slotted home his first goal for the club.
The match went to penalties and Arsenal's players added their second trophy under Arteta, with Aubameyang coolly sealing the success from the spot.
