Community Shield: Arsenal v Liverpool - What time? What channel? How do I stream it?

Arsenal and Liverpool will raise the curtain on the men’s new English domestic season in the Community Shield this Saturday, just four weeks after the Gunners won the FA Cup final.

It will be an opportunity for Jurgen Klopp’s side to win a first Community Shield since 2006 when they defeated Chelsea 2-1 to lift the trophy.

Last season, the Reds were beaten on penalties by Manchester City after a 1-1 draw, a defeat they will be looking to avenge this weekend.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side have won three of the last six Community Shields, most recently against Chelsea back in 2017.

Although often not considered to be a major trophy, the north London side will see this as an opportunity to build on their good form at the end of the last campaign and make a statement against last year’s runaway league winners.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.
