No advantage to Community Shield win, just the trophy - Jordan Henderson

It's the Community Shield on Sunday, in case you'd some how missed that fact, and the Reds will once again lock horns with Man City.

Guardiola's side completed a domestic treble last season, whilst the Reds went on to win the Champions League and push City all the way in the league.

But it's a new season, and a new season brings new challenges. That's why captain Hendo doesn't believe that a win on Sunday will give Liverpool any advantage over City going into the new league season.

Speaking to, the captain said: "I don’t think I’ll ever tire of playing at Wembley.

"I’ve been lucky to play here a few times with Liverpool and of course England. The feeling of coming here and it being special never gets old. It’s a big game and a big occasion.

"It’s a first for me – playing in a Community Shield – but I know it’s a competition Liverpool have always taken seriously, so that brings a responsibility for whoever gets picked to do everything we can to win.

"I’m not bothered about an advantage, we just want to win – full stop. The opponent is only relevant because in order to win it, we have to beat them. Sure, it’s the same for City. It’s the next game for us and therefore the next one we can win – that’s our attitude.

"We’ve huge respect for City and what they achieved last season and we also respect they’ll be a big force again this season – but [this match] isn’t about anything other than doing our best to win for our supporters."
