English Premier League

Starting XI: Man City v Liverpool

Community Shield
 
Teams: Manchester City v Liverpool
 
Date: 04 August 2019
 
Venue: Wembley Stadium
 
 
The champions of England will lock horns with the champions of Europe as Manchester City and Liverpool do battle in the FA Community Shield.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 16h00.
 
The two sides battled it out until the final day of the Premier League season but The Citizens' charges came out on tops, beating the Reds by one point.
 
Pep Guardiola enjoyed a successful domestic campaign after clinching the league, FA Cup and League Cup last season, although they came up short in Europe once again.
 
The Reds, meanwhile, ended their seven-year trophy drought after securing their sixth Champions League title after seeing off Tottenham Hotspur in the final.
 
While Liverpool have had a fairly quiet transfer window, City broke their transfer record to sign Spain international Rodri from Atletico Madrid.
 
Both of last season's encounters between the sides were evenly contested, with the first tie ending goalless at Anfield while City claimed a 2-1 win at the Etihad.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Manchester City: Bravo, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Rodri, D. Silva, De Bruyne, Sane, Bernardo, Sterling.
 
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Origi, Salah, Firmino.
 
Who do you think will come out on top this afternoon? Have your say in the comment section below.
