Don’t tell me that was a “friendly”, both teams desperately wanted to win the Community Shield on Sunday afternoon and while I’ll definitely get over the fact that Liverpool lost on penalties I can’t be doing with people pretending to not be arsed.

I was massively invested in that game and so too was Pep Guardiola apparently after he got a yellow card for literally kicking off at the fourth official. Add to that an acrobatic goal-line clearance from Kyle Walker and it is clear Man City were desperate to prevent us getting the first silverware of the season and vice versa.
So what did we learn from the loss?
1) There’s still nothing really separating these teams
2) Reds missed Mane
3) Defensive goal
