Mikel Arteta was yellow carded ahead of the kick-off of the 2023-2024 Premier League season as Arsenal saw off Manchester City at Wembley to win the 2023 Community Shield.

After a barren first half, Cole Palmer gave Manchester City the lead in the 77th minute, firing a rocket pass Aaron Ramsdale.

Manchester City nearly wrapped up a victory over the 2022/23 Premier League runners-up but were stung late in the game. Leandro Trossard scored a stoppage-time strike in the 90+11th minutes to restore parity for the Gunners, dragging the game into shootouts.

Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, and Vieira scored their penalties for Arsenal while Bernardo Silva was the only player who scored for City. Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri missed the spotkicks as Arsenal ran out with a 4-1 shootout win to emerge Community Shield winners.

It was a deserved revenge for the Gunners who narrowly lost the Premier League title to Manchester City last season and crashed out of the FA Cup, losing to the same opponent.

Mikel Arteta hit by Premier League new rule in Community Shield victory

There were a lot of prompts in the game. Mikel Arteta, with his usual touchline antics, was booked after he raised an imaginary yellow card following Rodri’s tackle on Declan Rice.

Arteta signalled to the officials that Rodri’s tackle was a bookable offense and should not be allowed to slide.

The gesture was met with disapproval by the referee, Stuart Attwell, who walked up to him and shown him a yellow card as a caution.

The Arsenal manager became the first manager to be hit by Premier League New Rules enforced by the FA. The rule is set to take full effect from this season.

The FA dolled out “nine rule changes” intended to clamp down on managers, players, or teams who violate them.

The rule intends heavier penalties and sanctions for violators with focus on managers and players who confront referees and other match officials during games.

Managers are particularly restricted to their technical area and are not allowed to enter into the pitch to speak with officials. The team staff and players are also restricted from gathering around match officials.

Team captains are asked to take more responsibility for the behavior of their teammates throughout the game.

A part of the rule is also directed at fans. The rule has barnished tragedy chanting during matches with defaulting fans putting their teams at risk of sanctions.

To enforce the rule, all the managers and their assistants have been asked, as a part of the new rule, to sign the new code of conduct before the 2023/24 Premier League season kicks off.

FA Nine Rule Changes Outline

  • staff members to sign new code of conduct
  • managers to attend pre-match briefings with referees
  • coaches to behave in responsible manner at all times
  • bosses and staff must remain in technical areas
  • no showing refs replays on electronic devices
  • staff banned from entering pitch to speak with officials
  • captains to take more responsibility
  • players not to invade official’s space
  • fans to stop tragedy chanting

Mikel Arteta reacts to his yellow card

Speaking after the match, Mikel Arteta said he is aware of the rules and will try to adjust.

‘I cannot change my behaviour in three days. I try my best. I understand the rule. I understand where they are coming from. We can get frustrated. It is fine. We will adapt’, he said.

Arsenal will kickoff their 2023/24 Premier League campaign against Nottingham Forest on 12 August 2023.
