Salah, Nunez seal victory as Liverpool best City to clinch Community Shield

Community Shield

Liverpool defeated Manchester City 3-1 to win the Community Shield, dealing the new season its opening blow.

With a deflected effort, Trent Alexander-Arnold got the Reds off to a strong start in the first half as Liverpool appeared to be the superior team.

With 20 minutes remaining, City tied the score when Julian Alvarez scored from close range, and it appeared that the game would go to penalties as a result. Darwin Nunez scored in stoppage time to secure the victory, but only Mohamed Salah needed to take the field and convert his penalty to retake the lead.

Jurgen Klopp now has all of the English domestic championships won during his time there, capping off a strong start for his team. 

The Reds play Fulham in their first league game of the season, while Pep Guardiola’s team plays West Ham the following weekend.
