Three key tactical headaches for Guardiola and Klopp as Man City face Liverpool in Community Shield | The Sun
SUNDAY'S Community Shield sees the two best sides in the country last season go head to head.
You can make an argument that Manchester City and Liverpool are not only the two best sides in the country on the pitch but off it as well.
Both clubs moved quickly to add more firepower for this coming season.
City signed the Norwegian international forward Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool took the Uruguayan international striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
These signings may represent a change in style for both sides as neither had previously played with a fixed striker leading the line.
This makes this showdown even more intriguing – and it promises to be a spectacular start to the season.

We have a look at three key tactical talking points ahead of Sunday’s epic clash.
How will Haaland fit at City?
In the end, it almost seemed like a calm and business-like signing from Manchester City as the news leaked that they had won the race to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
City benefited from the obsession that Real Madrid had with Kylian Mbappe as they were able to secure the signature of one of the premium forwards in the game at what feels like a bargain price of around £50m.
Yet the signing of Haaland feels like a distinct departure in terms of playing style for City under their coach Pep Guardiola.
