Liverpool vs Man City Time, TV Channel and Live Stream: How to watch the Community Shield

The football is back! Okay, it never really stopped. But in terms of importance, today’s game might just eclipse the Nations League, Copa America, Women’s World Cup and AFCON − combined. It is, of course, the Charity Community Shield, a competition that has always held a special place in Pep Guardiola’s heart. Fourmidables indeed. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Liverpool vs Man City, including full live stream details.

All jokes aside, clashes between Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Guardiola’s Man City tend to be breathless, chaotic, unpredictable affairs. Aka the best kind of game.

The Reds haven’t had an ideal pre-season, and Man City’s summer preparations have been overshadowed by criticism from China and the ongoing speculation revolving around Leroy Sane. These two sides may have ended last season by clinching the Premier League and Champions League respectively, but it’s safe to say they could both also do with a bit of a boost.

Whichever side you’re on, it could be a really entertaining game − and you can either watch it on TV or stream it. Here are the details.
