Relive Manchester City’s Community Shield victory over Liverpool from every angle with behind the scenes footage.

We kicked off the new campaign in the best possible fashion - by picking up some silverware at Wembley!

The Blues’ rigorous preparations were clear to see from the off as Raheem Sterling snuck his close-range 12th minute effort underneath Allison after a delightful flick from David Silva.

Nonetheless, our opponents continued to push for the equaliser with both Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah hitting the woodwork before centre-back Joel Matip’s header brought the sides level with around ten minutes to go.

Kyle Walker had to be at his acrobatic best to spectacularly deny Salah’s goal-bound effort later on and take the game to penalties, allowing goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to take centre-stage.

The Chilean denied Georginio Wijnaldum from 12 yards, allowing Gabriel Jesus to coolly sweep home the decisive spot-kick and bring the Community Shield back to the Etihad.

And based on the post-match smiles in the dressing room, it’s clear how much picking up this latest gong meant to everyone involved!
