Its the Communuity Shield this Saturday as Liverpool and Manchester face each other once more at Wembley.
The big question everyone is asking is if Erling Haaland will make his full debut for Manchester City?
Erling Haaland’s debut for Manchester City was one to remember as he provided the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Bayern Munich on the tour of the United States.

Haaland’s goal will surely be one of many highlights this season as Manchester City looks to defend their Premier League title and compete for more trophies on the domestic and European stage.
Erling Haaland’s much-anticipated debut for Manchester City did not disappoint, as the Norwegian striker showed glimpses of his immense talent in a friendly match against Bayern Munich.
Haaland was brought on in the second half and immediately made an impact, linking up well with his teammates and coming close to scoring on several occasions.
His movement and physicality was a constant menace for the Bayern defence, and he will no doubt be a valuable asset for City next season.
Julian Alvarez also impressed after coming on in the second half, and with both players showing promise, Pep Guardiola will be hopeful that his side can finally find some consistency in front of goal.
Erling Haaland’s debut was a hugely encouraging sign for Manchester City, and with more performances like this, he could quickly become one of the best strikers the Premier League has ever seen.
Erling Haaland is sure to make an appearance in the Community Shield, although he may not make the starting line up.
Pep Guardiola has played a 4-3-3 formation in recent weeks with Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez playing down the flanks.
They would be the main supplier for Haaland who should play in the more central role and that combination is sure to see plenty of assists during the season.
The Norwegian showed great confidence and already looks pretty much settled in the Manchester City team.
In the game against Bayern Munich, it was clear that Haaland will be the centre man up top who can not only lead the line but hold up play as well.
Ahead of the FA Community Shield clash with Liverpool, Haaland looks to be getting back to full fitness so it would be no surprise to see him line up against Liverpool on Sunday.
That could prove to be bad news for Liverpool who are still coming to terms with the loss of Sadio Mane, although Darwin Nunez looks to be a shrewd bit of business.
