United also hold the record for the highest-scoring game in their 8 - 4 win against Swindon Town in 1911.

The Gunners' win meant City were denied the trophy for the third consecutive season in which Pip Guardiola's side has lost the match.

Tottenham Hotspur

Despite Tottenham Hotspur experiencing a recent drought in trophy wins, the club boasts a storied past, having claimed victory in the Community Shield 7 times. However, the last appearance for the North London side was in 1991.

On 10th August 10th 1991, the competition, then known as the Charity Shield, showcased a North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal.

This rare occurrence came about because Tottenham had won the FA Cup while Arsenal had clinched the Premier League title.

This match remains the only time these rivals have met in the competition. The game ended in a 0-0 draw, and as the rules at the time did not include a penalty shootout, both teams shared the trophy for six months each.

Manchester City

Manchester City have won the Community Shield 6 times, all as outright victories, with their most recent win occurring in 2019.

In that match, they drew 1-1 with Liverpool and secured the title by winning 5-4 in the penalty shootout.

Today, the Sky Blues stand as a dominant force in English football, and this summer presents another opportunity for them to add to their impressive record in the competition.

Chelsea has secured the Community Shield trophy outright 4 times. In their most recent victory in 2009, they faced Manchester United in a thrilling encounter that ended in a 2-2 draw.

Goals were scored by Nani and Wayne Rooney for Manchester United, and by Ricardo Carvalho and Frank Lampard for Chelsea. The Blues emerged triumphant in the penalty shootout, defeating United 4-1.

Notably, this match marked Chelsea's first professional win on penalties since 1998.


Wolverhampton Wanderers have claimed the Community Shield 4 times in total, with 1 outright win and 3 shared victories. Their last triumph dates back to 1960, marking a considerable gap since celebrating a victory.

In the 38th Charity Shield, Wolves squared off against Burnley, resulting in a shared trophy. The two clubs had been fierce contenders for the league title in the prior season, with Burnley narrowly edging out Wolves by a single point.

This close competition denied the Midlands club a third consecutive league championship and the opportunity to achieve the first 'double' of the 20th century.

The current performance of Wolves leaves uncertainty lingering on when they might have another shot at competing for trophy.
