Community Shield final: Manchester City vs Leicester City potential lineups could be:

 

In Community Shield 2021 final Manchester City could list their squad against their opponent Leicester City at Wembley.

Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola could mix the team lineups with some seniors players that are already back in the club training and the under 23 players.

Because most of the Man City senior players are recently return in training or didn’t come back from their vacation. While it is not clear that City boss what lineups will be present by Pep at Wembley. It will be all under 23 players or a mixed team with senior players

Manchester Lineups could be:

Goalkeeper

The Manchester City first-team regular Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson is not yet back to the training. The second American Goalkeeper Zack Steffen back who returned to Man City from his vacation last week. Steffen also played two friendly matches with Man City after his return. He is the only Goalkeeper from the senior side that back to the squad. He could be the first choice keeper of Pep in the Community Shield final at Wembley.

Defenders

The Man city defence will be not that issue for Pep because most of his senior defenders are back from their vacation in the training session and also played the friendly match.

The defence could be featuring Ruben Dias, Benjamin Mendy, Joao Cancelo and Nathan Ake.

Midfielders

Manchester City captain and one of the most experienced midfielders of City Fernandinho is the first senior player to return to City in a training session and at pre-season.

Fernandinho will be the most preferred choice of Pep for midfield lineups at Wembley along with Another senior midfielder Elkay Gundogan who also return to the squad. But the other senior midfielder Kevin de Bruyne and Rodri recently return to the squad after their Euro 202p games.

The availability of both Kevin de Bruyne and Rodri in the Community Shield final seems a little bit doubtful because both of them recently join in the training session and don’t play any preseason with the team.

If both of them play in the last preseason against Blackpool before the final then it can be a chance that they will be a feature in the Wembley final. The other midfielder choice for Pep will be the young midfielders, Cole Palmer and Claudio.

Forward

In the absence of their regular striker Grabiel Jesus and no new signing for the replacement of Sergio Aguero as he departs this summer to Barcelona

The recently return Bernardo
Silva could be a feature in the absence of Grabiel Jesus in the final if he plays the pre-season match against Blackpool. Ben Knight also in the list for striker role in the Final at Saturday as Pep is quite happy with Ben with his performance in the preseason.

In the right flank their star player Riyad Mahrez will be the first choice of Pep at flanks as Mahrez has already played 2 preseason matches with City and absence of Phil Foden, he didn’t return to the squad.

At left flanks, they’re a regular starter, Rahim Sterling is not return to the squad. In the absence of Sterling the Pep could go with Samuel Edozie

 

In Community Shield 2021 final Leicester City could list their squad against Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday

Unlike Manchester City, some key players of Leicester City are not return to the club from vacation. But with their three new signings this summer Leicester City could play with some of their new signings in Wembley. Leicester City players list will likely be dependent on their preseason against Villarreal before Community Shield final. Brendan Rodgers the Leicester manager will closely look into his player’s fitness and form against the Villareal match

Leicester City lineups could be:

Goalkeeper

In the absence of their regular goalkeepers Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward as they don’t return to the squad. Rodgers has two choice keepers for their Wembley final Eldin Jakupovic and Daniel Iversen

Defence

Their main defence players are already back to the squad they are not ready to play or they didn’t train with the team. Jonny Evans is not training with the Squad now so he will be feature in the final.

The other defence Timothy Castagne and James Justin are not ready so both of them are not sure to feature in the final by Rodgers. As in the preseason, Carglar Soyuncu and Wesley Fofana again can continue in the Final as central defenders. Both of them could be the first choice of Rodgers due to other players are not that fit.

Where Ricardo Pereira will be in the right-back position and Luke Thomas or Ryan Bertrand will be feature in the left-back position.

Midfielders

In the midfield position, there is good competition like in the left-back position.

In the three midfield position, Leicester City has 5 midfielders Youri Tielemans, Wildfred Ndidi, Boubakary Soumare, James Madison and Keirnan Dewsbury-Hall are the midfielders for Leicester City in Community Shield final

Keirnan Dewsbury-Hall impressed manager Rodgers with his performance after became back to City from his loan period at Luton Town. So Dewsbury could be the preferred choice for Rodgers in the Leicester midfield.

Forward

In the middle as a striker, Rodgers can try Patson Daka in the final and look how he adapts the English conditions for the upcoming seasons.

In the right flanks, Rodgers has two choices Marc Albrighton and Ayoze Perez for the starting XI

While in the left flanks Harvey Barnes is likely to start in Wembley although his fitness level
