Liverpool will face Manchester City in the Community Shield Match today at 7pm. Will the Wembley arc be painted red or blue?
This will take us back to 2019 community shield match whereby Manchester City emerged winners in the shootouts after the match ended in a 1-1 draw. I know it will be a tough encounter as both teams have injury concerns. Liverpool will be without their first choice goalie while City will be without Aymeric Laporte.
Jurgen Klopp's red army will look towards redeeming themselves after losing two friendly matches. One against Manchester United (4-0) and the 1-0 loss to RB Salzburg. Man City won all their friendly matches.
Here's what is expected today:
1. City have a better squad.
Between the two power houses, Man City have the best squad. In games like this, if the managers are great then definitely, we should wait for individual brilliance to make the difference.
2. Liverpool to press hard.
As usual, Liverpool are expected to press hard in this match and capitalise Manchester City's mistakes. This would favour them if they take their chances because City are lethal too.
3. New boys to shine.
There are new faces on each team and they are expected to perform. Liverpool have Darwin Nunez while Man City have Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland. Both had fantastic preseason with Haaland grabbing his first win versus Bayern while Nunez grabbing a haul against RB Leipzig.
I know it's a tough match but City are likely to bag their first silverware due to individual brilliance.
