Premier League Champions Manchester United and 2009 FA Cup winners Chelsea, battle it out today at Wembley Stadium in a bid to win the Community Shield—or Charity Shield as it will forever be known by football enthusiasts of a certain era.

The last time they met, the Red Devils won. And for football fans here in the Philippines, the Premiership ranks first amongst the other leagues.

Sir Alex Ferguson still has one of the world’s toughest teams at his disposal, despite the sale of the both Ronaldo and Tevez.

For Chelsea, John Terry will start in defense, and he’s likely to be alongside Ricardo Carvalho. While Ancelotti will assess whether he feels his most efficient attacking option is through a pairing of Drogba and Anelka, or one of them deployed as a lone striker.

The match kicks-off at 10:00 a.m. ET (4:00 p.m. CET).

UPDATE: Salomon Kalou scored the winning penalty as Chelsea beat United 4-1 in a shootout to clinch the Community Shield. The London side scored all four of their spot-kicks, while Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra both missed their penalties for the Reds.
