Manchester United Win Community Shield

Manchester United emerged champions of the FA Community Shield after a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the Wembley Stadium in London.

Jesse Lingard put United in front after a fine run and finish in the 32nd minute, but Leicester hit back seven minutes after the break when Jamie Vardy raced on to Marouane Fellaini’s dreadful backpass to round David De Gea and slot into an empty net.

United would have the last laugh though, as new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic rose above Wes Morgan at the back post to head in Antonio Valencia’s cross in the 83rd minute.

Both sides will now turn their attentions to the Premier League season, which begins next weekend, with United visiting Bournmouth, while Leicester travel to Hull City.
