Chelsea win the Community Shield

Chelsea lift the Community Shield

Chelsea have won their first big match of the season, after beating Manchester United 4-1 in a penalty shoot-out for the Community Shield.

United took the lead with a goal from Nani, but Ricardo Carvalho then headed in an equaliser for the Blues. Frank Lampard then made it 2-1 for Chelsea.

But a last-minute equaliser from Wayne Rooney made the score 2-2 and meant the game was decided on penalties.

Chelsea didn't miss a kick but only Michael Carrick scored for United.

Chelsea's victory meant they won their first trophy under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
