Normally, Wembley Stadium hosts the Community Shield, but that won’t be the case this year. Because of the final game of the UEFA Women’s Championship, it was decided to move to the King Power Stadium-the home ground of Leicester City.

As mentioned above the match is a clash between Manchester City (Premier League champions) and Liverpool (FA Cup winners). While Manchester City successfully secured their league title, which is the club’s fourth trophy in the last five years, after coming from behind to defeat Aston Villa in the final round, Liverpool beat Chelsea in the final after a nerve-racking penalty shootout to lift the FA trophy.

Statistics show that, in the Community Shield, with fifteen victories, the Kop dominate the Citizens, who have just six trophies. Both the clubs have been really busy in the transfer market this summer. Man City have shown their determination to defend the title by signing some new deals, including the sought-after striker Erling Haaland and the defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips. Liverpool were no less active in the transfer window than their rivals when they broke the club-record signing to sign the Uruguay international striker Darwin Nunez and some potential teenage players.

     Considering both teams’ form, in some current friendly matches, while Pep’s team had 2 wins, with Haaland opening his account after 2 matches, The Kop have had 2 losses in 4 matches, especially the humiliating 4-0 defeat against Man United.

Teams News:

Liverpool: According to Jugen Kloopp, Alisson Becker will not attend the game due to abdominal problem. In the same case, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calvin Ramsay, Caoimhin Kelleher are also suffering from different injuries

Manchester City: Pep Guadiola's squad’s have some losses when Aymeric Laporte is sidelined due to a knee injury, and Ruben Dias is unsure about his physical condition after the match against Bayern Munich last week.

Possible line-up:

Liverpool: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
