Carlo Ancelotti grabbed his first piece of English silverware as Chelsea defeated Manchester United 4-1 on penalties in the Community Shield on Sunday.

Portuguese winger Nani opened the scoring for United in the 10th minute with a long-range effort across goal that evaded goalkeeper Petr Čech.

Ricardo Carvalho headed home the equaliser for Chelsea early in the second half before Frank Lampard fired the Blues ahead with 19 minutes left.

But Wayne Rooney then netted an injury-time equaliser to level the scores at 2-2 and set up a penalty shoot-out, which Chelsea won as Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra failed from the spot.
