Community Shield - Arsenal v Liverpool: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch on BT Sport

Premier League champions Liverpool go head-to-head with 14-time FA Cup winners and current holders Arsenal in the annual curtain raiser live on BT Sport.

Published: 4 September 2020 - 3.23pm

The 2020 Community Shield sees Premier League champions Liverpool go toe-to-toe with FA Cup winners Arsenal in the traditional curtain raiser.

The Reds ended their 30-year wait for the title to book their place at Wembley, while Arsenal upset the odds to beat London rivals Chelsea and lift the FA Cup for a record 14th time.

It's a quick turnaround for both sides with just 28 days seperating the FA Cup final and the beginning of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Having ended the season with eye-catching victories over Saturday's opponents, Manchester City and Chelsea, Mikel Arteta's Gunners will be desperate to maintain that positive momentum going into the new campaign.

For Jurgen Klopp's men, it's all about laying down an early marker as title rivals look to strengthen their squads and prize the title away from Anfield.

Two of English football's most storied sides featuring some of the biggest names in the Premier League meet to get the new domestic season underway. This is not one to be missed!
