Liverpool vs Manchester City: Community Shield 2022 Preview

On Saturday, Manchester City and Liverpool compete for the Community Shield trophy. Both teams have upgraded their squads in preparation for the new season, and it appears that we will witness another contest for all trophies between two of England's most complete clubs.

Given their pre-season friendlies, it would be a mistake to expect instant results from their performance. However, both have had a good run.

Manchester City will fight on all fronts, but their primary objective this time is to win the Champions League, which they have always sought.

Meanwhile, Liverpool were aiming for the historic quadruple last season but instead finished up with the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. So this season, the Premier League will be their main objective.

Liverpool vs Manchester City: Community Shield 2022 Prediction 

This will be a significant match for both sides, as it will determine who has the strongest team heading into the season. Manchester City have an unbeatable team, and given how Guardiola has improved several sections with fresh additions, it is difficult to imagine any club overcoming them.

Liverpool might be the team to break City, but Reds' new addition Darwin Nunez has failed to connect with his teammates after assessing his pre-season performance. Sometimes it takes a season for a player to acclimate to his new squad. However, Klopp has enough ammunition to replace Nunez. 

But, in this contest, City could emerge victorious.

Community Shield 2022 Prediction: 
Liverpool 2-3 Manchester City
