Match preview

The 100th edition of English football’s traditional curtain raiser, as always, sees the first division champions take on the FA Cup winners.

This competition was first held in 1908 when Manchester United eventually beat Queens Park Rangers in a replay.

114 years later, for just the second time since 1973, the shield will be contested somewhere other than Wembley or the Millennium Stadium.

Manchester City have now won 11 major honours under Pep Guardiola, including four Premier League titles and this competition in 2018 and 2019.

12 months ago, the Citizens were beaten 1-0 by Leicester in the Community Shield, although it didn’t seem to affect them too much.

Although, given the high standards they’ve set themselves, ending the campaign with only the Premier League trophy probably isn’t seen as the success that it is.

Liverpool meanwhile did end the campaign with multiple pieces of silverware, lifting both the FA and Carabao Cups.

On both occasions, Jürgen Klopp’s team beat Chelsea on penalties following 120 minutes of goalless action.

The Reds did conclude the season with Champions League Final defat to Real Madrid, but even this didn’t take away from their glory.

Now, Liverpool are looking to lift the Community Shield for the first time since 2006, ending as runners-up in 2019 and 2020.

Who will prevail at Leicester’s King Power Stadium?

Liverpool team news

Liverpool have been very busy in the transfer market with Sadio Mané, Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino, Ben Davies and Neco Williams all departing.

Darwin Núñez is the high-profile arrival, joining from Benfica for around £65 million.

The Uruguayan striker would love to get off the mark on debut.

Slightly less high-profile arrivals Calvin Ramsey and Fábio Carvalho will also be hoping for debuts, most likely to come off the bench.

The main team news though surrounds Liverpool goalkeepers, due to the fact Caoimhín Kelleher and Alisson are both out injured.

So Adrián, who last featured on 27 October against Preston, is in line to start this one.

Manchester City team news

Manchester City also have a brand new centre-forward, namely Erling Braut Håland.

The Norwegian scored 85 goals in 88 appearances for Borussia Dortmund and only a brave person would back him not to net here.

Kalvin Phillips and Julián Álvarez are the Sky Blues’ other new recruits, also set to make their debuts.

Going in the other direction, Raheem Sterling has joined Chelsea with Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus moving to Arsenal.

Fernandinho is the other noteworthy departure, leaving for Atlético Paranaense.
