Ainsley Maitland-Niles had a Community Shield final to remember after having a man of the match performance and took one of the coolest penalties in penalty shootout history.
Arsenal have won the Community Shield after beating Liverpool on penalties.
The regulation time score of 1-1 wasn't good enough for either team and Arsenal took home their second trophy this year after winning 5-4 on penalties.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles had a game to remember after putting in a man of the match performance as well as scoring an incredible penalty in the shootout.
Maitland-Niles has been linked with a move away from Arsenal with clubs such as Wolves, Newcastle United and Tottenham looking at the player with Arsenal valuing him at £25 million. However, the Englishman has put in a performance worthy of staying perhaps.
The penalty taken by Maitland-Niles was as cool as you can get with him casually jogging up to the penalty and easily slotting it, sending Alisson Becker the wrong way.
Fans on Twitter loved the penalty with Maitland-Niles not even looking at the ball once before slotting it in the back of the Liverpool net.
