INCIDENTS: Community Shield match between Leicester City and Manchester United, held at Wembley

Leicester showed why they were Champions and fought right to end of the game. That though brings to an end today's commentary of the Community Shield between Leicester City and Manchester United. I have been Brandon Sayer and until next time have a good evening.

United though were not going to be denied the win as Ibrahimovic used his power to head in the winner seven minutes from time.The players got a good amount of minutes in the game which will only make them better going into the game with Bournemouth next week.  

The second half was so much better with Leicester coming into the game and they scored within seven minutes of the half when Vardy pounced on a Fellaini mistake to get his team back level.

Manchester United have won the 2016 Community Shield.

83' - Goal for United! It's Zlatan time alright. A brilliant cross from Valencia finds Ibrahimovic in the box and the big striker cuhsions his header into the corner past Schmeichel. What a time to score for yout team that is.

Leicester City have made two changes at half-time: Okazaki and Albrighton are replaced by Ahmed Musa and Gray.

Overall the first half hasn't really got going with both teams struggling but United lead thanks to a brilliant solo goal from Lingard. A lot of players are still trying to get up to full fitness and it's likely there will be some changes at half-time. Stay tuned as we bring you the second half commentary in a few minutes time.

32' - Goal for United! It's Jesse Lingard once again at Wembley. Lingard picked the ball up in the middle of the park and ran right through a number of different challenges to run through on goal and slot the ball past Schmeichel to give United the lead. The game needed that.

20' - A mistake from Rooney in the middle of the park released Vardy who in trun passed the ball to Okazaki who hit a shot which just deflected wide of De Gea's goal for a corner. From the corner Robert Huth got his head to the ball and it came back of the bar.

1' - Referee Craig Pawson blows his whsitle to get the game underway. Game on!

Both teams come into the game looking to set down a marker for the new season. It will be interesting to see how fit both sets of players are after the summer break. Stay tuned as we bring you the commentary from the match in a few minutes time.

Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs; Mahrez, Drinkwater, King, Albrighton; Okazaki, Vardy.

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Fellaini, Lingard, Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Martial.

The team news for the game is in. Stay tuned!

We'll have confirmed team news for you at around 3:00PM BST but before that, stay with us as the build up to the game continues.

Manchester United predicted XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Schneiderlin; Martial, Rooney, Mkhitaryan; Ibrahimović.

Leicester City predicted  XI(4-4-2): Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs; Albrighton, Drinkwater, King, Mahrez; Ulloa, Vardy.

On the other hand, Jose Mourinho has some selection dilemmas to make with Chris Smalling and Timothy Fosu-Mensah back in training after recovering from injury. Another big selection will be whether Marcus Rashford gets a start in attack after impressing in the few games he has played so far. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Adnan Januzaj and Paddy McNair will not be involved in the game after being deemed surplus to requirements by the manager.

In terms of team news for the game, Claudio Ranieri has a full-strength squad to choose from for the game with Vardy back in training after his England Euro's exploits. Ahmed Musa, who signed this summer, will feel confident after scoring a double against Barcelona in Leicester's last pre-season game. Riyad Mahrez, who has been the subject of transfer speculation this summer, is set to play with the foxes looking to him to create chances for them this weekend.

Last season the two clubs had two very close games as they both finished 1-1. The game at the King power stadium saw Jamie Vardy open the scoring for the foxes before Bastian Schweinsteiger equalise for United. At Old Trafford in the other game, it was United who took the lead through Anthony Martial before Wes Morgan equalised for the champions. It is likely that the game this weekend will be close once again with both teams well matched.

United's pre-season was also one of mixed fortune with them beginning with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Wigan Athletic. It was then time for the China tour which was a disaster as firstly they were defeated heavily by Borussia Dortmund 4-1 before the game with Manchester City was called off because of torrential rain. They then went to Gothenburg to play Galatasaray and they got back on track with a 5-2 win which included a Zlatan Ibrahimovic wonder goal. The final game before this weekend's game was Wayne Rooney's testimonial which United could only come away with a 0-0 draw against Everton.

The foxes have had a mixed pre-season to date and will be looking to put a marker down against United. They began with a 2-1 win against Oxford United before they began their International Champions Cup campaign. The first game saw them come up against Celtic which they won on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time. In the second game, they came up against French champions Paris-Saint Germain and lost the game 4-0 before losing their final game 4-2 to Barcelona.

United have won the Community Shield on 20 occasions which is five more than any other team and they will be looking to extend that this weekend. The Foxes are appearing in their first Community Shield match since they beat Liverpool 1-0 back in 1971 so they will be looking to make an impression this weekend.

It's time for the curtain-raiser to the new season with the Premier League getting underway next weekend. United being the FA Cup winners face the Premier League champions Leicester in a game which will show how close both teams are too full fitness ahead of the new season.
