Liverpool defeated Lyon 3-1 in their final game of the pre-season and now, they will collide against Manchester City in the Community Shield contest on Sunday.
In the last campaign, the Sky Blues won all the domestic competitions and the Reds won the biggest prize in Europe. Who will come out on top at the weekend?
As far as the team news is concerned, manager Jurgen Klopp could make seven changes in the squad that started vs Lyon yesterday.
In the fullback positions, the likes of Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson should return to the starting line-up. On the other hand, Matip and Van Dijk should replace the likes Gomez and Lovren to start in the central defense in front of Alisson.
The likes of Shaqiri, Lallana and Keita started in the midfield vs Lyon. Fabinho, Wijnaldum and captain Henderson should replace the trio in the center of the park.
As far as the attack is concerned, Mane is still on vacation and in his absence, Wilson might retain his place in the starting XI. The young attacker is naturally a right winger but he played on the left wing against Lyon and scored a stunning long range goal.
The Welsh attacker should start with Firmino and Salah up front. Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Man City:
