Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction: Game Preview

The FA Community Shield is lined up right at the cusp of the new football season with the titans going at each other in a high-intensity clash. The FA Cup winners Liverpool is set to take on the Premier League champions Manchester City, who denied them the title for the second consecutive season.

Both the sides have managed to grab at least one trophy in the 2021-22 season but a win here in King Power stadium would be the icing on the cake. Liverpool has a clear edge in the overall head-to-head but the Pep Guardiola man is slightly ahead in the race, as far as various predictions are concerned.

Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction: Recent Form

Liverpool did have a great 2021 season but they missed out on an outstanding feat of holding a trophy in England as well as in Europe as they slipped in the final of the Champions League final. Nonetheless, wins in FA Cup and Carabao cup would have driven their confidence to do better in the 2022-23 season. On the other hand, their Premier League campaign was fascinating, to say the least, with the Anfield-based team falling short by just one point in the end. Overall, they would be looking to continue their domination in the circuit.

Looking at Manchester City’s outing, it won’t be an understatement to highlight their lack of returns despite spending so much yet again. Not only did they fail to win the UCL, but they also faltered in the early rounds of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup with the only exception being the Premier League trophy. With Pep’s stint in the club already at stake, it is important for the club to win the Community shield thereby paving way for a big season in 2022. It’s a matter of saving their reputation in the days to come.
