City wins Both FA and League Trophy-How will Community Shield be played?
image Manchester City under the super head coach achieved the impossible when he led his team to set a new record in the history of English Premier League by ensuring all three major trophies contested by this season was in his cabin. This is coming at the back hill of a season the same side lifted the lead with a record breaking 100 points which was another record set last season. It now seems breaking and setting records is part of Pep Guardiola DNA. No doubt he has done this at different times in different leagues. Starting from the league campaign, Liverpool really fought hard to claim one of the trophies; being the EPL suffered a bad fate when they lost their staggering 7 points lead on the log back in January that could have nailed their grip on the trophy but series of subsequent draws ensured that Liverpool trailed their City by a point till the final whistle of the season to confirm the saying "victory goes to the person who made the next to the last mistakes. Mistake are inevitable but some much more avoidable. image image Traditionally, the participants in the community shield match are always pits between the winners of the premier league and the FA Cup. Manchester City haven lifted the EPL with 98 points and thrashing Watford 6-0 last weekend to set the all time highest scoreline in the FA Cup finals in Wembley Stadium in modern football as well equalled the 116 years old record of FA Cup Final victory of Bury over Derby County. With the two trophies which required for participating clubs to have, that makes it an all Manchester City community shield but how will City play against themselves or rather the position of the league management body? Instead of being all Manchester City, the winner of the premier league and the second runners up will slug out probably on Sunday 4th August in a penultimate warm up game a week before the start of the season. That mean the two outstanding teams will meet at Wembley first thing before the season begin when the 2019/20 league season starts. The community shield will be a very good match to mark the opening of the new league as the two super managers continue their rivalry next season.They have in recent time being a rivalry between fans of both clubs off the field of play when the citizens tried to sing the anti version of the Allez Alllez Allez chant. This game will be another avenue for both fans to meet again in an ego challenge. Community shield a a trophy that replaced the Charity Cup. This is a very trophy Liverpool has won 16 times and shared 5 times, their last being in 2006. So, are not new to the trophy. The last of it was won by the same Manchester City when they defeated Chelsea last August.
