This match has produced plenty of goals and excitement in recent years and a repeat looks likely this weekend at Wembley
The two favorites to be crowned Premier League champions meet at Wembley on Saturday afternoon in the Community Shield as reigning English champions Manchester City take on FA Cup winners Liverpool.
There is no doubt that these two teams will face off for the title again in May, but both will be keen to deliver a quick blow with a victory in the capital.
Latest odds between Liverpool and Manchester City
There isn’t much to choose from in betting between these two sides, especially on neutral ground, but City are the marginal favorites offered to 6/4 (2.50) win in 90 minutes.
Pep Guardiola’s men are also available on 4/5 (1.80) to lift the trophy.
The Reds meanwhile are priced at 7/4 (2.75) win without overtime and 19/20 (1.95) to secure the Community Shield for the first time since 2007.
The draw can be supported at 23/10 (3.30) and both league meetings last season ended in stalemates.

Liverpool v Manchester City preview
It may not quite have the historic grandeur of the El Clasico encounters between Real Madrid and Barcelona, but the encounters between Liverpool and Manchester City are quickly becoming one of the most entertaining fixtures in European football.
The last seven meetings have yielded 28 goals and given the vast array of attacking talent on display at Wembley this weekend, there should be plenty of interest in backing a high-scoring game.
Indeed, there has only been one clean-out by either team in the last nine games and this game virtually guarantees goals at both ends.
Liverpool vs Manchester City Predictions
Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score are priced at 11/10 (2.10) and seems an obvious selection for what should be an open and entertaining encounter.
