Man City boss Guardiola fed-up with Liverpool media bias: C'mon guys!

Man City boss Guardiola fed-up with Liverpool media bias: C'mon guys!

But the 24-year-old England global took time out at the end of the match to provide some young Liverpool supporters with a priceless memento after helping Manchester City to victory.

Champions League winners Liverpool responded well and went close several times before substitute Joel Matip levelled 13 minutes from time. A Kyle Walker scissor-kick denied Mohamed Salah the victor on 93 minutes, with goalkeeper Claudio Bravo - who Guardiola felt was the man of the match - thwarting Xherdan Shaqiri shortly after.

Gini Wijnaldum saw his penalty saved by Claudio Bravo before Gabriel Jesus scored the victor. It's not as much important what I could say but what the boys showed today.

Far from the easing into what promises to be a long campaign for both clubs, this entertaining and open Community Shield clash was played at breakneck speed with chances created at both ends throughout.

It was a theme that continued for most of the first half and into the second. Liverpool hurried Roberto Firmino and Salah back into their side despite them only returning to training this week and Sadio Mane was unavailable. There was nothing left to do besides shoot the ball in.

Surprisingly though, it was Mo Salah who failed to break the deadlock for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's team were also runners-up to Manchester City in the top flight last season, despite losing just once and accumulating a huge 97 points - finishing a point adrift, with the most points ever managed by a team finishing second.

Van Dijk is human after all.

But the European champions did find an equaliser when, in similar fashion to City's opener, Henderson's free-kick found its way to van Dijk at the back post.

The likes of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson start in the full-back positions.

City ran out winners 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes at Wembley.

Substitutes not used: 22 Simon Mignolet, 6 Dejan Lovren.

Raheem Sterling scored two minutes later following a deft flick from David Silva.
