    If Sadio Mane had played today Liverpool may have won the game. Divock Origi has shown he is a supersub. Both teams have gears to go through.

    Liverpool play all of the top six in their first 12 games so I expect City will have a decent margin by November time.

  3. Post update


    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on BT Sport: "Wow, it was a really good performance, a powerful one in the second half. Both teams had a similar pre-season, I spoke to Kevin de Bruyne after the game and we both said we don't really know where we are yet.

    "The least we deserved was the equaliser, one save decided it and I cannot be disappointed today. The performance was much more important today than a win. We know we are still here, we can still play proper football.

    "In the first half we could have adjusted better, but we had chances as well. In the second half we changed a few things, we wanted it and in the end it was a little bit lucky. Congratulations to City."

  4. Stat of the day

    Manchester City have now won each of their last seven penalty shootouts.

    Germany in disguise.

    Raheem Sterling was getting booed throughout the first half and before the match, and then he goes and signs autographs with Liverpool fans.

  6. Post update

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on BT Sport: "An incredible final from both sides, no team can dominate for 90 minutes. We had real good moments, in the last 15 minutes we were exhausted and they had chances to win the game.

    "It was a good test for both teams. It's nice for the players to realise what they will face this season. At this level the difference is nothing. One penalty, one point.

    "The first title of the season is in our sight. In the second half they played more long balls and we didn't win the second balls. We could not control it.

    "United will be back, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea...I don't know what will happen."

  7. Post update

    The Manchester City fans are making their way to the exits as the players head down the tunnel.

    Pep Guardiola and his staff are having a team photo with the trophy in the middle.

  8. Post update


    Raheem Sterling has gone over to a group of Liverpool fans and is signing autographs and taking photos with them.

    He gets a round of applause from those who have stayed and the City fans soon catch on and join in.

    New signing Rodri thrusts the shield up in the air in front of the City fans. He can probably get used to this!

    Party time! There's strands of silver string being dragged all around the pitch now.

    Andrew Priestley: Even though it was just a ceremonial curtain-raiser for the season ahead, you can understand why these two were head and shoulders ahead of the rest of the PL last season, and why they will be again this year.

    Kieran: This City side are just serial winners

    Ilkay Gundogan is carrying the trophy towards the stand at the end where the City fans are. Oasis is playing in the background.

    It's champagne time!

    David Silva needs to get on the weights if he wants to be captain - he struggled to lift that trophy without some help!

  16. Post update

    Sergio Aguero, who didn't play today and David Silva, lift the trophy together as City's fans roar with delight.

    "Na, na, na, na, na, naaaaa, City" rings out.

    SMS Message: Didn't think I'd be so gutted to lose the "charity shield" first half was City's, second was Liverpool's. Both teams showed why they will be the two main contenders again. Brilliant game, congratulations City but we are not going to go away. Bring it on! from Paul, Luton

    Leroy Sane has made his way up the steps too, though a little gingerly. That's a positive sign on his injury though.

  19. Post update

    Now for the champions. Claudio Bravo is first in line. The keeper made a number of fine stops today and his save from Georginio Wijnaldum in the penalty shootout proved the difference.
