The official curtain-raiser for the 2020/21 Premier League season sees Arsenal face Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions take on FA Cup winners Arsenal in this weekend’s Community Shield at Wembley.
We haven’t seen a 0-0 between these two sides since 2015, and with this fixture effectively seen as a pre-season friendly by many, this should be a decent enough game with plenty of goals.
Both sides have won the Shield an impressive 15 times and will see it as the perfect way to start off what is set to be another hectic season.
Here are our Community Shield betting tips ahead of Saturday’s showdown at Wembley…
Community Shield Betting Preview
Don’t discount the comeback win
Arsenal came from behind to beat Liverpool in the Premier League last month.
With plenty of rustiness expected this weekend, backing either side to battle back for victory could be a good shout.
Keita to stake his claim?
Liverpool’s number 8 still hasn’t really kicked on since signing for the club in 2018.
However, he is undoubtably a talented player; his form towards the end of the 19/20 season proved that.
He grabbed a goal in Liverpool’s friendly against Stuttgart last week and will be keen to cement himself in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield three ahead of the new campaign.
Blink and you might miss something…
