THE Premier League’s two top sides, Liverpool and Manchester City, are all set to face off in the season’s traditional curtain raiser.

But the Reds did secure FA Cup glory with the second of two penalty shootout victories over Chelsea they enjoyed at Wembley last season.

Liverpool played out 0-0 draws with the Blues in both the FA Cup and League Cup finals but emerged triumphant in both matches after they went to a shootout.

Victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men in the FA Cup final has seen them qualify for the Community Shield, in which the league and cup winners face off.

In a break with tradition, this year’s match will be played at Leicester as Wembley is hosting the Women’s Euro 2022 final.
