The Premier League Champions lock horns with FA Cup winners Liverpool in the Community Shield at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Saturday 30 July at 17:00 UK time.
Manchester city hopes to get a win this time as last season their lost with 1-0 defeat against Leceister on the community shield final with the goal of Kelechi Iheanacho separating both side.
The citizen spent their summer in USA where they played two friendly games against Club America and Bayern munich where they were victorious in both games with a 2-1 win against club america and 1-0 win against munich.
Manchester city hopes to start a premier league campaign next weekend against David Moyes side Westham United with a community shield trophy.
The premier league winner could line up this weekend against The Reds with 4-3-3 formation : Ederson to start in the goal, walker and cancelo will play as fullback with Citizen only fullbacks i don’t think there is a debate on those posts, Dias will start on first place as centre back with Laporte injured and stones who didn’t participate in any preseason game where he stayed in England and trained with Manchester city u23 alongside Gundogan and Foden i think Pep will not hesitate to give Ake a starting line up, in the midfield there will be no suprise the trio who played many games together last season will continue in the starting line up rodri, bernado and debryune , up front i think Mahrez will take the right Wing and with a good performance versus bayern munich where he assisted Erling halland first goal , Jack Grealish will take the left wing , on the number 9 i think Alvarez will get a starting line up with Pep saying that Halland had some niggle in past days i don’t he will risk him.
Probable line up : Ederson, Walker, Dias(c),Ake, Cancelo,Rodri, Bernardo, Debryune, Mahrez,Alvarez, Grealish
The game to kickoff at 17:00 BST,
Venue: King Power stadium
