Arsenal could be surprise opponents for Liverpool in the Community Shield next month even if they lose their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City, according to reports.

The curtain-raising showpiece is usually contested by the winners of the FA Cup and the champions of the Premier League, with the second-placed side in the league taking the spot if a team does the double.

But UEFA?s rearranged European tournaments have created big issues with the FA?s hopes of staging the Community Shield this year.

The Europa League final does not take place until August 21, with the Champions League final following two days later, and Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are still involved ? as well as being in the FA Cup semi-finals.
With the proposed date for the Community Shield currently just a week later, on August 30, any team that wins the FA Cup and also goes deep in European competition will be unable to take part.

However, according to the Daily Mail, FA bosses are still absolutely determined for the Community Shield to go ahead as planned, even if United or City win the FA Cup and play in a European final.
