Manchester City got the better of Liverpool in penalties and claim the FA Community Shield for the second year in a row in an absolutely riveting game.
Raheem Sterling put City in front in the first half with a tap-in that left much to be desired from the Liverpool defense, but the Reds returned in the second half full throttle, finally getting a much-deserved goal courtesy of Joel Matip. Kyle Walker provided an unbelievable clearance to deny Mohamed Salah at the end of regular time, and Gigi Wijnaldum was the lone miss during penalties, allowing Gabriel Jesus to slot home the inner and claim the shield.
