Be interesting to see if Migs or Alisson starts.

I’m fully expecting it to be our strongest possible side so I think it will be Alisson

If we don’t sort ourselves out, could be on for a hiding. Having said that, Pep hasn’t probably slept for a couple of months worried about this game.... he will overthink it as usual.

Klopp will just give all our players a big hug.... and we will steam roller them 4-0. Ox with a brace, Bobby and Brewster to score the others.

Only keeper starting this is Alison.

If we win this, get ready for City fans to suddenly declare it isn’t really a trophy after all.

For me... and I don’t mind admitting this. It is a trophy (albeit the least important one) but it’s still a trophy.

I will be there, singing my heart out and watching MY REDS say Wembley for ye first time. It’s gonna be a special occasion and I hope we can win. Be gutted if we don’t

Klopp said it’s a pointless “trophy” as is super cup. He’d like to scrap both.

That's the opposite of what he said?

"Klopp, meanwhile, was taken aback at suggestions the Community Shield is not regarded as a major game in the English calendar.

The Reds boss twice won the German equivalent – the DFL-Supercup – while in charge of Borussia Dortmund, beating Guardiola's Bayern Munich on both occasions in 2013 and 2014.

And when told Sunday's game is something of a glorified friendly, Klopp said: “Is that how it’s seen in this country? Nobody told me that. Ah, a curtain raiser.

“I don’t know exactly why people play this competition if it means nothing. Why don’t we cancel it then?

“In Germany I won it twice but nobody mentions it. We played every year. The Super Cup – you win it, nobody cares, you lose it and some care.

"I will ask what it means in the history of the club"


Also:

Klopp, who was irritated about the game with City being called a friendly, added: "I would like to try to win it - it's a final.

"This is the first time I realised that nobody sees it like that, to be honest. 'A curtain-raiser', it's unbelievable."


Where did you get that he wants to scrap either trophy?
