The Premier League champions Manchester United take on last season’s dramatic FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic, in today’s Community Shield match.
The traditional curtain-raiser for the season ahead, David Moyes will be eager to win his first piece of silverware as United boss, after taking over from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer. Wigan are a Championship side, but will hope to upset the odds like they did against United’s Manchester rivals in the FA Cup final in May.
Wantaway striker Wayne Rooney will not be playing, but expect Premier League top scorer Robin Van Persie to lead the line, with young starlets Wilfried Zaha, Jese Lindgard and Adnan Zanujaz hoping they have done enough during pre-season to earn a starting spot at Wembley.
Owen Coyle would love to bring another trophy to the DW stadium, after his predecessor Roberto Martinez left to join Everton following Wigan’s relegation. The Latics won their opening Championship match 4-0, and will hope to continue the good form today.
