Without Sadio Mané who left for Bayern Munich, Liverpool won its first trophy of the season. The Reds have dominated (3-1) on Saturday, July 30, Manchester City in the Community Shield thanks to a Mohamed Salah already sharp and decisive.
Liverpool is already on top of its game. Physically and tactically, the Reds have shown great things in this first official match in England. They dominated Manchester City 3-1 in the Community Shield final between the English champion and the FA Cup winner. Without his usual partner upfront Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah was decisive. The Egyptian winger was involved in all three of the Reds' goals. In the 21st minute, it was he who passed the ball to Alexander Arnold, who scored the opening goal.
While the Citizens came back to equalize (70th), Mohamed Salah gave the advantage to his team by converting a penalty obtained by Darwin Nunez (83rd). The Egyptian was at the origin of this action since it is him who delivers a nice cross to the Uruguayan striker. And on the third goal of the Reds, the Pharaoh delivers another nice cross to Robertson. The latter makes a delivery well concluded by Nunez with his head. 3-1, Liverpool knocked out City and won their 16th Community Shield trophy.
