That could be anything from a culture shock to the amount of coverage they receive after missing chances. 3Darwin Nunez impressed Troy Deeney with his goal, and celebration, in the Community ShieldCredit: Getty 3Signings of Erling Haaland and Nunez will make it another two-horse title raceCredit: Getty It may even be someone like Haaland playing at Anfield in a Manchester City shirt for the first time, or getting a good old-school whack from a defender. They will both enjoy the physicality. They are both big human beings. Seeing Nunez whip his top off in the Community Shield I thought: ‘He’ll be OK’.

    THE epic nature of the rivalry between Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City almost demanded a Champions League final meeting last May. When they last met in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley in April, both managers would have been fully expecting a last tango in Paris to round off another season of this fascinating duopoly. 3Rival bosses Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have huge respect for each otherCredit: PA 3Manchester City won the race for the summer's hottest property, Erling HaalandCredit: Getty 3New striker Darwin Nunez has been in brilliant pre-season form for LiverpoolCredit: Getty Instead, owing to the wrecking-ball efforts of Real Madrid, they meet again today in the more low-key environment of a Community Shield at Leicester’s King Power Stadium. But while the venue has been shifted because of the women’s Euros final at Wembley tomorrow, and the match will rightly be overshadowed by the progress of England’s Lionesses, Liverpool versus City is never a fixture to be sniffed at.
