Gameday in Leicester for the community shield final between Liverpool & City.
Liverpool will be without Alisson, Diogo Jota, Tsimikas & Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Roberto Firmino should leave to Juventus so he might now play.
City will be only without Laporte. Ruben Dias could play against Bayern. John Stones, Foden & Gundogan weren’t in USA for the pre season but now they are back.
What a big clash we have to start the English football back.
Last year city won the PL with 93 points. They got 29 wins, 6 draws & 3 losses for 99 goals scored & 26 goals conceded.
Liverpool ended second with 92 points. They got 28 wins, 8 draws & 2 losses for 94 goals scored & 26 goals conceded. It’s not a surprise, Mane left to Bayern he scored 16 goals for them in 34 games last season. Diogo Jota is injured and he was also important last year, he scored 15 goals.
For me we have the best value on City DNB because offensively Liverpool will be quite in trouble at the early of the season to replace Mane. They added Darwin Nunez but for me he isn’t a top quality player yet, we could see in pre season that he has so much things to improve.
City’s offense is just insane now with the addition of Haaland who already scored in pre season. On the bench there is the Argentinian star Julian Alvarez. City should go with their offensive 4-3-3. I see them much more ready than Liverpool who will also be in trouble without their main GK.
