61 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0 

Electric break down the Liverpool left from Diaz, who charged away from Rodri and swung a left-footed cross over towards Salah.

But it was just slightly overhit which forced the Egyptian too wide and City managed to flood enough bodies back to shut down the attack.

06:19 PM

57 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0 

Here come the subs! City replace Grealish and Mahrez with Foden and Alvarez, while Liverpool’s big summer signing Nunez comes on for Firmino.

06:15 PM

53 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Lovely interchange down the Liverpool right between Salah, Henderson and Alexander-Arnold.

The full-back cuts inside and unleashes a left-footed drive which is blocked by some last-ditch City defending.

06:08 PM

47 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Big chance for Mahrez 60 seconds into the second half!

He peels off Robertson, chests down a chipped through-ball and then cuts inside – but mishits his shot which allows Adrian to save comfortably.

06:06 PM

46 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

We’re under way in the second period. No subs at half-time but each side can make up to six changes given this is a designated friendly.

05:51 PM

HT: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Alexander-Arnold’s strike separates the sides at the break.

Liverpool started the livelier and took a deserved lead, but City came into the game as the half progressed.

Haaland had a couple of half-chances but has been well marshalled by Van Dijk and co for the most part.

05:47 PM

45 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Two minutes of added time to be played.

05:46 PM

42 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0   

Wonderful feet from Salah who bamboozles Bernardo Silva and Rodri on the left flank but is just crowded out as he looked to pick a telling pass.

05:41 PM

37 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0 

Another half-chance for City, this time Mahrez on the right edge of the box but he takes a bit too much time to get the ball under control and his right-footed effort is blocked by Robertson.

05:37 PM

33 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0 

Good save! City have numbers at the back post and work the ball from left to right, where Haaland shrugs off a challenge from Robertson and unleashes an instinctive half-volley which Adrian stoops to save.

Then moments later the big Norwegian has another opportunity but can’t direct his diving volley goalwards!

05:34 PM

31 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Decent spell of possession for City but it’s mainly sluggish stuff at the back.

Ake finally launches a long ball over the top and Mahrez unleashes a vicious strike which Adrian parries – but he was miles offside and the flag, eventually, goes up.

05:30 PM

26 mins: Liverpool 1 Man City 0

Decent opportunity for De Bruyne to pick out a team-mate as his side counter-attack but the Belgian misplaces a pass and Liverpool clear.

05:24 PM

GOALL!! Liverpool 1 Man City 0

A lovely strike from Alexander-Arnold who whips it home from the edge of the box (perhaps courtesy of a slight deflection!)

17 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0   

This might be a glorified friendly but a couple of meaty challenges on the halfway line have got the crowd roaring!

05:17 PM

13 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0 

Side netting again! Alexander-Arnold swings over a delicious ball to the back stick where his full-back colleague Robertson is in acres of space… but the Scot can’t find the target with his header!

05:16 PM

12 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0 

Sloppy play from Robertson in the centre circle nearly gifts City a counter-attacking chance but Henderson steps in to dispossess De Bruyne and snuff out the opportunity.

05:11 PM

8 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0

Electric stuff from De Bruyne, who latches on to a loose ball, takes a touch to set himself and then fires a left-footed strike just wide.

It was actually a decent bit of defending from Van Dijk who closed the Belgian down and deflected the ball out for a corner… which comes to nothing.

05:08 PM

5 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0

City nearly caught out at the back as Liverpool dink a quick free-kick over the top to Salah but the Egyptian was just crowded out as he was about to pull the trigger.

05:06 PM

3 mins: Liverpool 0 Man City 0

Close! Lovely play from Salah on the Liverpool right, collecting a long ball from Fabinho then jinking past Joao Cancelo and firing into the side netting!

05:02 PM

Here we go

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson gets proceedings under way.

05:01 PM

Boos for the national anthem

From the Liverpool end, just as there were at the FA Cup final. An explanation of why the fans have taken to booing the anthem is in Ben Rumsby’s piece from earlier on this year.

04:57 PM

The players are out on the pitch

Just the pre-match formalities to be completed and then we’ll be under way.

04:42 PM

Some pre-match reading

From Telegraph Sport columnist Jamie Carragher, who believes Erling Haaland’s signing – and Liverpool’s capture of Darwin Nunez – has given hope to the rest of the Premier League.

04:30 PM

Why isn’t the Community Shield at Wembley?

There’s one very simple reason.

There happens to be a massive game at the home of English football tomorrow, with the Lionesses going for Euro 2022 glory against Germany.

We will have live coverage of that one for you across Telegraph Sport.

04:06 PM

Erling Haaland starts for Man City!

There is no Darwin Nunez in Liverpool’s line-up but City’s big summer signing starts at the King Power this afternoon!

Subs: Ortega Moreno, Phillips, Stones, Gundogan, Alvarez, Foden, Mbete, Palmer, Wilson-Esbrand.

04:03 PM

Liverpool team news

No messing about from Jurgen Klopp who has picked a really strong starting XI.

Alisson misses out with injury which is why Adrian starts in goal – and new signing Darwin Nunez has to make do with a place on the bench.

Liverpool XI: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Henderson, Salah, Firmino, Diaz.

Subs: Davies, Gomez, Konate, Milner, Keita, Jones, Elliott, Nunez, Carvalho.

Good afternoon

Welcome to our live coverage of Liverpool vs Manchester City in the Community Shield, the traditional curtain-raiser to the top-flight campaign.

These two sides have dominated English football in the past few seasons, and it would be no surprise to see them battling for the Premier League title yet again this year.

How much this game will tell us about any prospective title tussle remains to be seen – and it will also be interesting to see how both managers line up today at the King Power Stadium, which is hosting the clash with the Euro 2022 final between England and Germany taking place at Wembley tomorrow.

You’d imagine neither Jurgen Klopp nor Pep Guardiola wants to give their rivals any chance of a minor mental edge ahead of the campaign but that has to be balanced against the continuing pre-season training requirements.

Both sides also have slightly rejigged attacking options this year, with trusted goal-getters Raheem Sterling and Sadio Mane replaced by shiny young things Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez – and it could be a first real glimpse of how those new cogs fit into two well-oiled winning machines.

However, Klopp has already suggested it will be reinvigoration rather than reinvention for his side.

The German said: “We want to be the team no one wants to play against because when they have the ball, they have pressure everywhere and when we have the ball we have to have more consistency and then when we have the ball, we have to create new ways, we have to help the boys with positioning, not invent ourselves new, that is not necessary but include new things here and there. That is what we were really working on.”

Today’s game kicks off at 5pm live on ITV. We will have all the pre-match build-up for you before then and then live updates throughout.
