Sunday, August 4, 2019- Pep Guardiola’s all-c0nqouring Citizens face off with Jurgen Klopp’s mighty Reds today in the Community Shield at Wembley.
This mouth-watering clash will act as a curtain raiser for the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign that gets underway next weekend.
Both teams will miss services of key players who have barely recovered from their recent exertions in the Africa Cup of Nations and Copa America, many of whom made it to the latter stages in their respective competitions. Go Here>>>
Guardiola won’t count on attacking duo Gabriel Jesus and Kun Aguero while Klopp will not have the services of Sadio Mane but may include Mo Salah though not match fit.
Head to Head:
Liverpool have proved to be a bogey team for City having won this encounter on seven of nine occasions in the Premier League and Champions League before last season.
The most memorable of those Liverpool triumphs was a 3-0 Champions League quarter-final win at Anfield in 2018, followed up by a 2-1 second-leg victory at the Etihad Stadium. Go Here>>>
City handed Liverpool their only defeat of the season in a crucial 2-1 win in Manchester in January which ultimately saw them retain the Premier League title, one point ahead of Liverpool.
Possible starting lineups:
Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Origi, Lallana
Man City:Bravo; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden; Bernardo, Sterling, Sane
Prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Man City Go Here>>>
Liverpool's lack of fully-firing strikers gives City an important advantage against opponents still seeking top form ahead of the new season.
City look a more complete, ready squad at the moment and we reckon the Premier League Champions will carry the day in normal time.
