Liverpool v Manchester City betting preview
Liverpool's lack of fully-firing strikers will give City an important advantageAfter losing against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Napoli and drawing against Sporting Lisbon in this summer's friendly matches, Liverpool ended their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 victory over Lyon. The absence of the Salah-Manè-Firmino trio has clearly been felt during much of the Reds' pre-season. Despite winning the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp's men are looking for revenge against the Citizens as they finished one point and one place behind Guardiola's men in the Premier League last season. The Merseysiders lost just the single match – against City – and had the best defensive record.
Sadio Mane is not expected to return to training until after the curtain-raiser at Wembley, following his time away at the African Cup of Nations. The likes of Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are all expected to feature having played the most recent pre-season game. Divock Origi is a viable alternative up front, should Jurgen Klopp decides to rest Salah or Firmino. Full-back Nathaniel Clyne has been ruled out for six months after rupturing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament against Borussia Dortmund.
35/1 Man City to win the Community Shield
Man City are unbeaten in our last seven games at Wembley Stadium (W6 D1)Manchester City's pre-season has gone rather smoothly. Man City have recorded three wins and a penalty-shoot-out loss to Wolves in the Premier League Asia Trophy this summer. As to new signings, they did smash their club record to lure midfielder Rodri away from Atletico Madrid while Fabian Delph and Vincent Kompany have left the club. At the same time, Guardiola appears to have his eye on Juventus full-back Joao Cancelo in a transfer potentially sending City's Danilo the way of the Serie A champions. The reiginin Premier League champions claimed a dramatic 2-1 victory when these sides last locked horns.
There are no notable injuries in the ranks aside from Benjamin Mendy. Aymeric Laporte is a major doubt while Riyad Mahrez is unlikely to feature after AFCON duties. Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Nicolas Otamendi are all back in training following their participation at the Copa America but the two forwards are not expected to start. Phil Foden could play a key role for City after being praised by Guardiola in the build-up while Leroy Sanè could start on bench as he has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich. There is a dilemma over the influential Fernandinho, who played with a knee problem at Copa America.
