    • 50' Going to be a booking for McArthur for a late tackle on Welbeck as United look to move forwards.

    • 41' Vidic late on Maloney, and Wigan have a free-kick around 40 yards from the United goal. Cross coming up.
    • 40' Van Persie with a corner. Plenty of pace on it, but Welbeck can't keep the header down as the ball clears the bar.

    • 38' Holt is penalised for another late challenge. This time on the United substitute Smalling.
    • 37' McClean manages to bound beyond Smalling. Smashes the ball across the face of goal, but no takers on hand to convert. McClean showing his menace.
    • 36' Wigan Athletic have beaten Manchester United only once in 17 attempts (all competitions); losing the other 16.
    • 35' McClean with a super cross into the heart of the United box, but Holt is penalised for a late foul on Evra. Excellent cross by McClean.
    • 34' Jones under some pressure from McClean, but he knocks the ball out of play in taking no chances. Wigan with a throw-in out wide.
    • 33' Manchester United have won two and lost none of their last five matches in the Community fixture, winning two by way of a penalty shoot-out and losing one shoot-out.
    • 32' Zaha does well to keep the ball in play out wide to earn his side a throw-in deep in the Wigan half.
    • 31' Maloney can't escape the attentions of Welbeck out wide. De Gea has had nothing to do in that United goal so far. Wigan letting United have it in their own half.
    • 30' Perch tracks the run of Van Persie before walloping the loose ball out of play.
    • 29' Carson off his line to collect a high ball. All fairly easy for the Wigan goalkeeper. The Championship side continue to try to contain the English champions.
    • 28' All a bit tepid so far. Great goal from Van Persie, but not a lot of opportunities at either end. United enjoying this period of possession football.
    • 27' Carson wallops the goalkick long from deep. Smalling deals well with the McClean cross. Barnett then carries the ball out from the back.
    • 26' Barnett dumps the ball out of play. Not the best of passes from Carson. Van Persie then overhits a pass trying to pick out Evra. Wigan will have the goalkick here.
    • 25' Stephen Crainey tries to join the party for Wigan, but United are mindful of the Scotland defender's run to snuff out any danger.
    • 24' Giggs roaming about the park like a man half his age. Still an exceptional footballer. McClean then collects for Wigan.
    • 23' Holt guilty of catching Evra late around the halfway line. United just keeping the ball for fun. Plenty of movement in that United midfield. Which is the way it should be.
    • 22' Robin Van Persie has bagged seven goals in his last six games against Wigan Athletic. Wigan fans must just love the sight of the Dutch forward.
    • 21' Boyce throws the ball up to Holt. He is outmuscled before McCarthy fails to collect the Maloney pass. United playing the ball out from their own half.
    • 20' Jones caught by a late challenge, and United will have a free-kick in their own half. Wigan toiling to make any advances so far. Wigan revelling in possession so far.
    • 19' Vidic can't get on the end of the Giggs's delivery before Jones wheels a pass straight out of play seconds later. Disappointing for United.
    • 18' Phil Neville barking some instructions to Smalling. Neville looks good enough to fill that void himself.
    • 17' Rafael on the deck. Looks like he has rolled his ankle. He is going to depart the scene. Chris Smalling set for action as Giggs prepares to float in a corner.
    • 16' Van Persie with plenty of movement. Rafael seems to be carrying an injury. Zaha with a testing cross, but Barnett gets in ahead of Welbeck. Wigan survive that scare.
    • 15' On his last visit to Wembley, in the play-off final, Wilfried Zaha registered three chances created and 24 dribbles, both high moments in that game. He looks a threat today.
    • 14' David Moyes must be a happy manager at the moment. Thumbs up from him so far today. United continuing on from where they left off last season.
    • 13' Carrick and Giggs combine, but Van Persie can't gallop onto the ball over the top. Carson off his line quickly to collect the loose ball.
    • 12' Zaha and McClean coming together out wide. Watson forced to try to help out in stemming the side when United break from either wing.
    • 11' There have been 18 goals scored in the last four Community Shield games during ‘normal’ time. Make that 19. Van Persie thrilled with that finish. As are all the 'local' United fans.
    • 10' Holt can't convert in the middle from McClean's cross, and Giggs can clear the danger. Better stuff from Wigan moving forward after Van Persie shed possession.
    • 9' Plenty of work to be done there, but the Dutch striker still had so much composure about his aim. That is highly impressive stuff. Wigan look to break here.
    • 8' GOAL! Van Persie rises unmarked to guide a header into the corner of the net from Evra's cross. He started the move off. A brilliant goal. No chance for Carson.
    • 7' Giggs with a backheel to bring Rafael into play. The cross is cut out by the head of Watson.
    • 6' Wigan trying to pick up these second balls before Van Persie nips back to win the ball from McArthur. A loose ball from McCarthy, but Wigan survive.
    • 5' Jones brings McCarthy crashing to the deck. That will be a free-kick to Wigan. Owen Coyle making himself heard from the technical area.
    • 4' Evra tries to join the party in a supporting role, but ends up flicking the ball straight into the arms of Carson in the Wigan goal. Quite a warm day in the national stadium.
    • 3' Scott Carson dumps the ball straight out of play after some bright skills from Zaha. United control possession from the back before looking to bring it out.
    • 2' This year’s Community Shield game marks the first time a club outside the top division features in the curtain raising fixture since 1980 - West Ham United. And that club is Wigan as David de Gea hammers the ball out from the back.
    • 1' Wigan get the action off and running. Maloney and McArthur get the ball rolling.
    • 13:55 Teams on their way out. Denis Law out shaking hands with the players. Gorgeous day for football, it must be said. United in their trademark red, Wigan in blue. Almost ready to go.
    • 13:50 David Moyes adds: "Pre-season form has been a bit mixed. Today is still a pre-season game, but obviously there is a trophy to win. Wayne trained with us yesterday. He is not quite fit. Hopefully, he'll be involved for England (against Scotland) during the week." Owen Coyle also comments: "We believe we have the quality to win games, but we have tremendous respect for Manchester United."
    • 13:45 Owen Coyle (Wigan): "David has succeeded Sir Alex on merit. For years I have been saying he could manage any top club in world football. There is no doubting what he has done. He has been at the coal face with Preston and earned the right to go from there to Everton, where he also did a magnificent job. He was a natural successor to Sir Alex and it is great to see a home-grown manager evolving to that level. I have no doubts he will have huge success at Manchester United."
    • 13:40 David Moyes (Manchester United): "I just cannot wait to get the season started. As I have said before, I know what it is like to walk out at Old Trafford as the manager of the opposition, so to step out in front of more than 75,000 fans as the Manchester United manager will be a special moment for me. Being given the chance to manage a club like this was a dream come true for me and probably more so given that the previous manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, wanted me to be in charge of the club."
    • 13:35 Wigan's new signing James McClean will make his debut for the Latics after his switch from Sunderland, while former Norwich striker Grant Holt starts up front for the FA Cup winners, who hammered Barnsley 4-0 at Oakwell last weekend. New arrival Thomas Rogne will miss out with a back problem, while Gary Caldwell (hip) and Ivan Ramis (knee) are on the long-term injury list. Emerson Boyce and Leon Barnett starts up front.
    • 13:30 The referee for today's match is Mark Clattenburg.
    • 13:25 No Wayne Rooney in the United squad with Ashley Young and Nani also rested due to injury. United set to operate in a 4-3-3 formation with Carrick and Giggs sitting deep as Cleverly bursts from midfield. Quite a fluid formation with Welbeck and Zaha able to switch flanks.
    • 13:20 Teams: Manchester United De Gea Rafael, Vidic, Jones, Evra, Giggs, Carrick, Cleverley, Zaha, Van Persie, Welbeck.subs: Lindegaard, Evans, Anderson, Smalling, Valencia, Januzaj, Kagawa////Wigan Carson, Boyce, Barnett, Perch, Crainey, Watson, McArthur, McCarthy, McClean, Holt, Maloney..subs: Nicholls, Gomez, Espinoza, McCann, McManaman, Fortune, Dicko
