The Premier League sorta-officially starts today with the Community Shield, a non-competitive “friendly” that pits the winner of the Premier League against the winner of the FA Cup. That means it’s Leicester City (FA Cup winner) vs. Manchester City (Premier League winner).
This match isn’t televised in the USA, but it is streamed on ESPN+. Par for the course these days, unfortunately. Please note that, as per usual, any links to illegal streams or even hints as to where to find such links will be ruthlessly deleted, and the offenders banned. Don’t do it. We can get in trouble.
This is your open thread for this match. Have fun! The usual match thread rules apply.

XI | Steffen, Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Mendy, Fernandinho (C), Gundogan, Palmer, Mahrez, Edozie, Torres
