Liverpool vs Manchester City live stream, Saturday 30 June, 5pm
Liverpool and Manchester City will go head-to-head for the first piece of silverware of the 2022/23 campaign when they contest the Community Shield on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola’s side lost this fixture to Leicester (opens in new tab) last season, but it did not affect them in the Premier League: City (opens in new tab) amassed 93 points, scored 99 goals and won the title for the fourth time in five years. The Community Shield will not be too high up Guardiola’s list of priorities for the coming season, and he would probably prefer a strong performance but narrow defeat this weekend to a poor display and a fortunate victory.
Having said that, managers of Guardiola’s calibre want to win as much silverware as possible, so he is unlikely to name a weakened team for Saturday’s clash, which will take place at the King Power Stadium because Wembley is being used for the final of Euro 2022 between England and Germany.
As Premier League runners-up last time out, Liverpool (opens in new tab) will be looking to make a statement of intent against the team they will have to finish above in order to win the title in 2022/23. They beat City in the last head-to-head match between these teams at a neutral stadium, storming into a 3-0 lead in the FA Cup semi-final and resisting a second-half fightback to win 3-2.
Darwin Nunez and Erling Haaland, the two clubs’ headline summer signings, will make their first appearances in a semi-competitive match for Liverpool and City respectively.
Calvin Ramsay, who has joined the Reds from Aberdeen, looks set to miss out, though. Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kostas Tsimikas, Alisson Becker and Caoimhin Kelleher are also sidelined, with Adrian in line to start in goal.
City will have to make do without Aymeric Laporte, who is nursing a knee injury. Kalvin Phillips, who moved to the Etihad Stadium from Leeds (opens in new tab) last month, will probably be on the bench.
Kick-off is at 5pm BST on Saturday 30 July and is being shown live on ITV in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You’ll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won’t automatically block the service you’ve paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that’s a result.
