Community Shield Live Stream and Manchester City vs Liverpool TV Guide


fa community shield

The English Premier League is not far off and the traditional warm up match comes the weekend before the season with the FA Community Shield, the ninety-seventh edition of this prestigious event between the holders of the FA Cup and the reigning EPL champs.

This year’s version sees Manchester City v Liverpool, and with both sides expected to challenge for the 2019 EPL title, it will be a brilliant contest at Wembley, and you won’t miss a minute when using the information provided in this FA Community Shield on Australia TV guide.

2019 FA Community Shield TV Preview

This year’s Community Shield is a bit unique in that Manchester City won this year’s FA Cup and are also the reigning EPL championships. Given that City won both competitions, the 2019 FA Community Shield will instead include last year’s EPL runners-up, Liverpool F.C. The Cup represents the first piece of hardware in the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign, and helped set the tone for Manchester City’s remarkable run last season. Manchester City will be striving to win their 6th Community Shield, while Liverpool will be looking to secure their 16th title, which would place them second all-time behind just Manchester United (21).

Manchester City are also the reigning Community Shield champions, having defeated Chelsea 2-0 with the help of Man of the Match Sergio Aguero, who netted both goals. Manchester City have played in the Community Shield four of the past seven years, with a record of 2-2, so they are no strangers to the intensity that surrounds the contest. For Liverpool, they haven’t appeared in the Community Shield since 2006, when they edged Chelsea (2-1).
