Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal can take confidence from their Community Shield win over Chelsea and avoid another bad start to their Premier League season against Leicester on Friday.
The Gunners have lost on the opening day in three of the last four seasons.
They face Leicester at Emirates Stadium on the back of a penalty shootout win after a niggly 1-1 draw at Wembley.
“We had the intensity in the games in our preparation that is needed to be ready,” said Wenger.
“Let’s go into the Premier League with the same discipline, the same spirit and see where we can go.”
