Declan Rice fires brilliant Arsenal message after Man City win as first trophy secured

Arsenal star Declan Rice has fired a message to supporters following the FA Community Shield win against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon. The England international put in a fine display against the Premier League and European champions as he prepares for the start of the new season.

Arsenal matched City toe-to-toe throughout the clash in London before Cole Palmer opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola’s side. Mikel Arteta’s side responded in the dying moments of the game as Leandro Trossard equalised in the 101st minute with a deflected effort.

The game went to penalties as Kevin De Bruyne struck the crossbar before Aaron Ramsdale proved to be the Gunners’ hero as he saved Rodri’s penalty kick – before Fabio Vieira sealed the victory. Redemption for Arsenal some may say following their Premier League title disappointment last term.

It looks as though the Gunners will be challenging City at the top of the Premier League table once again in the 2023/24 campaign – and Rice will be at the heart of Arteta’s side driving them forward towards success. After lifting his first trophy with the north Londoners, the 24-year-old sent a message to fans on social media.

 

Rice posted a picture of himself biting his winners medal, with the caption: “COYG!!!” followed by love heart and trophy emojis. The England international followed this up with another post of himself holding the FA Community Shield, with the caption: “First trophy for The Arsenal!”

Following the victory, Rice said: “I feel like I’ve grown so much already in the first three weeks that I’ve been here. There’s a lot of information to take in of what the manager wants.

“I’m eager to learn, as I keep saying, I’m eager to keep improving and I’m sure with this team we’ve got, the manager, the staff, everyone so together, we can achieve anything this year.

“We just need to stay focused, stay together and enjoy today.”
