Who will win the first England title of the new season?
An old saying goes that it is much more difficult for a team or an individual athlete to keep the top position than to even reach the top. How much effort the Reds have to put in to confirm their national supremacy after the outstanding last Premier League season, we will be able to find out for the first time next Saturday.
Then the traditional Community Shield final will take place at Wembley Stadium. There it comes to a duel between the FA Cup winner and the reigning champions. Arsenal welcome Liverpool. The odds of the best bookmakers imply a favorite role in favor of the team of coach Jürgen Klopp, who wants to add more silverware to his personal trophy collection at the weekend.
Two weeks before the start of the new season on the island, both teams have the welcome opportunity to test at the highest level and at the same time to win the first title in 2020/21. Both Arsenal and Liverpool currently have 15 successes in said competition. For the men from Anfield it would be the first Community Shield triumph since 2006; The Gunners were the unofficial English Supercup winners in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
We are looking forward to a high-class final and could well imagine that not every cog on both sides is far from working on the other. In view of the prestigious importance of this game, we still expect a concentrated performance from the master, so that the prediction of the Reds success should make sense between Arsenal and Liverpool.
Arsenal – stats & current form
There was positive news for Arsenal FC fans on Thursday. As her coach Mikel Arteta said, captain and goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is about to renew his contract in the English capital. The former Dortmund is something like the life insurance of the Gunners and is also primarily responsible for ensuring that the Londoners can play for the first national title of this season on Saturday.
With his two goals in the final of the FA Cup against Chelsea, the lightning-fast Gabonese ensured the 2-1 win and the first trophy won for the young Spanish coach, who is currently about to lead Arsenal back to its old strength. The way to get there is not only long, but also rocky and yet the ex-champion can be expected to have a lot in the new 2020/21 season.
Arsenal have won the last three finals in the English Supercup
On the defensive, one hopes for new impulses from the young Frenchman William Saliba, who knew how to convince during his loan in St. Etienne and is now supposed to stabilize the defensive together with the recovered German keeper Bernd Leno. Compared to the absolute top teams from Liverpool, Manchester City or Manchester United, however, the necessary quality is still lacking to play low-level teams and to display the necessary consistency over an entire playing year.
At least the latter will not be necessary on Saturday. 90 strong minutes would be enough for the Gunners to win the English Supercup for the 16th time. From the perspective of the Londoners, it should be mentioned positively that they were able to decide the final for themselves in their last three attempts. In our opinion, this historical fact is not enough to give a tip between Arsenal and Liverpool on the gunners’ title win.
To make matters worse, some players, Mustafi, Mari, Chambers and Martinelli, are still out due to injuries. Arsenal fans can look forward to it again this weekend, because summer newcomer Willian faces the competitive game premiere in a red and white jersey. The dress rehearsal at the first and only test match against MK Dons (4: 1) to date was positive.
Probable formation of Arsenal:
Leno; Saliba, Luiz, Tierney; Cedric, Willock, Xhaka, Saka; Willian, Nketiah, Aubameyang

Liverpool – stats & current form
Jürgen Klopp is a real title hamster. In the past two years, his Reds were first crowned European champion, then the best team in the world and, to top it off, also became English champions for the first time in 30 years. The question of what significance the Community Shield has for the sympathetic cult trainer from the Black Forest can therefore be allowed.
Anyone who has got to know “The Normal One” over the past few years knows how ambitious they are when it comes to raising trophies. Even when he was in Dortmund, he always gave the Supercup a very high priority. There is also a lot at stake on the island on Saturday, because for the first time since 2006 the LFC could claim the title again.
Does Klopp trust one or the other youngster?
We believe that the reigning national champion will be very happy to finally be able to play a real competitive game again. With all due respect to the Premier League games played after the break, the big focus was long gone due to the huge lead in the table. It will be all the more interesting to see whether Salah, Mane and Co. can knock over the buck immediately and build on the performances shown from the preliminary round 19/20.
The impressions so far in the training camp have been good. The 2019 Champions League winner celebrated a 2-0 victory against Bundesliga promoted VfB Stuttgart. Against RB Salzburg you had to be satisfied with a 2-2 deficit after a 2-2 deficit. Nevertheless, we believe in the self-confident Reds, who still have to do without Captain Henderson, Matip and probably Alexander-Arnold. With the young Williams, Jones or Brewster, Kloppo could surprise in the starting XI.
Probable formation of Liverpool:
Alisson; Williams, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Jones, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Brewster, Mane

Arsenal vs Liverpool Direct comparison
For the fourth time, the English heavyweights face each other in the final of the Community Shield. Liverpool won the trophy in 1979 and 1989, with the Gunners returning the favor in 2002.
However, the most recent direct duel, which took place in July of this year, is much more telling than this look into the past. Arsenal prevailed 2-1 at home, but benefited from the fact that the Reds were already established champions at this point. In the first leg of last year’s Premier League season, the Klopp-Elf had the upper hand in Anfield with 3-1.

The first title in English football will be awarded on Saturday. In the unofficial Supercup, the Community Shield, cup winners Arsenal and champions Liverpool face each other. The betting odds are relatively clear in the direction of the Reds, which is in line with our personal assessment.
Although the Gunners showed decent performance after the restart and ultimately deservedly won the FA Cup, the bottom line was that they lacked the necessary consistency. In addition, in our opinion, the LFC from the rest of the 19/20 season can no longer be compared with the Reds, who start the new season with fresh energy and motivation at the weekend.
Key facts – Arsenal vs Liverpool tips
Arsenal have clinched the title three times in the last three finals
The Reds could win the Community Shield for the first time since 2006
The most recent direct duel in July 2020 went to the Gunners (2: 1)
We therefore decide between Arsenal and Liverpool for the tip that the Klopp-Elf wins after regular time and that although the German coach may provide one or the other unexpected personality in his starting line-up.
