The game ended 1-1 and went straight to a penalty shootout, which Arsenal won 5-4, but Klopp believes Liverpool should've won the game in regular time.

Gabon forward Aubameyang had helped the Gunners win a record 14th FA Cup against Chelsea earlier this month and produced a superb strike to give Arsenal an early lead against the Premier League champions.

Aubameyang opened the scoring for Arsenal with a brilliant goal in the 12th minute on Saturday.

Stoppage time substitute Rhian Brewster hit the bar with his penalty, as Arsenal scored all five of their own for the win.

But Liverpool and Arsenal were back in action just 34 days after the end of the coronavirus delayed Premier League campaign and only six days after the Champions League final concluded the entire 2019-20 season.

The Gabon worldwide, who scored both of his team's goals in that FA Cup triumph over Chelsea, is crucial to the north London side and Arteta believes the club will have good news for anxious fans soon.

'We had some good moments, ' the Reds manager continued. "He was magnificent in the FA Cup final and he was magnificent again today".

For Liverpool, it was the second successive season they have lost the Community Shield on penalties after being beaten by Manchester City last term.

"We are going to see, today we will just take the trophy and that is it", he said.

When asked about any other transfer plans from the Gunners this summer, Arteta said: "We are working with the club to try to achieve what we planned, but we know that the market is what it is. Thank you very much to the players for the effort and the performance", Arteta said. 'We should've created more but we had to be careful because of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang because they are strong in counter-attack'.

The start of the second half was just like how the game ended in the first half as Liverpool looked for an equaliser and they nearly got one when Sadio Mane was put through but Emiliano Martinez made an incredible save. But we didn't do that and the shootout is always a lottery. "We respect the competition".
