2020/21 Premier League champions Manchester City clash with Leicester today afternoon for the FA Community Shield at Wembley Stadium in London. This clash comes at the backdrop of Man City signing former Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish at a record fee.

However, Man City is set to miss the services of some of its top players after their international exploits.

According to Manchester Evening News, a simulation was made to determine the victor in this event that is considered a curtain-raiser for the 2021/22 season. The simulation was done using FIFA 21-a popular football video game by EA Sports. The difficulty was set to legendary.

Here are the predicted lineups for both teams;

Leicester City

Schmeichel; Pereira, Ndidi, Soyuncu, Bertrand; Albrighton, Tielemans, Soumare, Barnes; Iheanacho, Vardy. They could set up in a 4-4-2 formation.

Manchester City

 Steffen; Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Mendy; Gundogan, Fernandinho, Palmer; Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Grealish. They set up a 4-3-3 formation.

Man City would open the scoring in the first half with Riyad Mahrez followed by Bernardo Silva. Mahrez would double later in the same half with the involvement of Jack Grealish.

In the second half, Leicester scores two goals courtesy of Patson Daka and Harvey Barnes. Still, Man City will go ahead and win the title with a 3-2 scoreline.
