Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview
Liverpool pushed Manchester City all the way in a historic Premier League campaign for the two clubs last season. Both sides got close to the 100 point barrier, with Liverpool accumulating the 3rd most points in Premier League history. These two sides were a class apart from their Premier League rivals and standards will remain as high as ever this season.
Liverpool come into the Community Shield off the back of a disastrous pre-season. The Reds have suffered defeats to Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Napoli heading into this game before a win aganinst Lyon last time out will have boosted the confidence. The front three of Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are yet to feature after international duty. The former was involved in the AFCON final just over two weeks before kick-off and is not expected to feature.
Manchester City have had their own absentees, with neither Sergio Aguero nor Gabriel Jesus having returned after the Copa America. This will likely see Raheem Sterling continue through the middle where he has been deployed for much of pre-season. Despite the transfer rumors, Leroy Sané looks certain to start, with Sterling’s regular position vacated and Riyad Mahrez also yet to return.
Community Shield Betting Tips
Neither team is likely to field their full-strength attack but that is no reason to expect a goalless affair. A Man City frontline of Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva should be deadly. There is a lot of uncertainty in the Liverpool attack, but Liverpool should still be dangerous, nonetheless.
Somewhat surprisingly, the last six Community Shields have averaged just 2.2 goals a game and have featured four wins to nil. City come into the match better prepared and should have the edge over Liverpool, particularly with their absentees. Use the BetBull sign-up bonus offer on Man City to win and under 4.5 goals is priced at 29/20.
The Manchester club made a habit of taking an early lead last season and with Sterling running in behind centrally, they look a good bet to do the same in this game. Manchester City to score first is priced nicely at 3/4. We’re also backing Manchester City to be leading after 15 minutes at 5/1 for our Community Shield predictions.
