Liverpool Preview – Will the Reds kick off the new season with a trophy?

Liverpool are back in the Community Shield after winning the FA Cup last term. The Reds were very successful in the domestic cup competitions last season, also winning the Carabao Cup. They beat Chelsea on penalties in both finals.

Liverpool had an outstanding 2021-22 season. They took Man City to the wire in the race for the Premier League, and Klopp’s boys also reached yet another UEFA Champions League final, narrowly losing out to Real Madrid. Can they top that in the 2022-23 campaign?

Our betting prediction:
Liverpool to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1206 GMT, Friday 29 July)

Bigger trophies are up for grabs, but winning the Community Shield will be an outstanding way to kick off the new season. The Merseysiders are the slight second favourites at the King Power Stadium, with the bookies offering 7/4 for a Reds win in the 90.

Manchester City Preview – Can the Champions nick the win in Leicester?

Manchester City edged out Liverpool last term in one of the most dramatic title races of all time. They were 2-0 down at home to Aston Villa on the final day, but three late goals saw City win 3-2 and keep hold of their Premier League trophy.

Man City have racked up an incredible amount of Premier League points since Pep Guardiola took over, winning the league title four times under the Spaniard. The Champions League has eluded him, but Pep has won a whole host of trophies during his time in Manchester, including two Community Shields (2018 & 2019).

City were beaten by Leicester City in last year’s Community Shield, which they followed up with an opening weekend Premier League loss to Tottenham Hotspur. Pep’s boys will not want a repeat scenario this time around. Can they get their hands on the trophy before their opening league game of the season at West Ham United next week?


Liverpool vs Manchester City Betting Advice

These two heavyweights played out two memorable 2-2 draws in the Premier League last season. They also squared off in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium, with the Reds edging a five-goal thriller.

Man City’s last victory over Liverpool was a thumping 4-1 success at Anfield in February 2021, though that is their only win over the Merseyside outfit in five.


Key Facts – Liverpool vs Manchester City Betting Tip

  • There were 13 goals scored in the three meetings last term
  • Man City finished just one point above Liverpool in the 2021-22 Premier League
  • Liverpool are the third most successful side in the Community Shield (15 wins)


The pair are by far England’s two finest sides at present, and they will no doubt put on a show at the King Power this weekend. The bookies are having a hard time splitting them, but we fancy Liverpool to nick a narrow victory in Leicester.

The Reds are priced at 7/2 to win by one goal. Also, have a punt on the 2-1 Liverpool victory at the top price of 10/1.
