Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger resume their bitter rivalry at Wembley Stadium this afternoon as Chelsea and Arsenal meet in the Community Shield.

Jose Mourinho won the Premier League title last season at a canter, finishing eight points in front of second-placed Manchester City and 12 in front of today's opponents.

The Portuguese manager has assembled a very strong squad that will enter next season as favourites to retain their crown.
