Community Shield 2021: Leicester City v Man City
The 2021 edition of the Community Shield is going to be a very special match. The Coronavirus changed the entire world. We were used to following our favourite team in the stadium. From the start of the pandemic stadiums were empty. Now it looks like the Community Shield match might be one where loads of fans can enter Wembley to support their team. In this article we look back at how both teams qualified for the Community Shield.
Manchester City Community Shield qualification
Pep Guardiola’s team had a strange season. After the first few months, everybody ruled them out for the title. Until everything clicked and the team started winning match after match. This lead to a first place early in 2021 and they never gave it up again. Ruben Dias proved to be a top signing. Together with John Stones he led the defense and they became almost unbreakable. This was the key to the success of Manchester City during the 2020/2021 season. They won the Premier League and earned their Community Shield ticket.
Leicester City Community Shield qualification
Leicester City got the shortest way to the Community Shield. But it wasn’t the easiest route into this match. They played Stoke City, Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Manchester United, Southampton and Chelsea in their FA Cup journey. Winning the final at Wembley against Chelsea was an amazing moment for the Foxes. It was one of the first matches last season where some fans were allowed to be in the stadium. The sound the Leicester City fans made when Tielemans scored a screamer is a moment we will never forget. Now it’s up to Brendan Rodgers and him team to get another trophy by winning the Community Shield. Do you want to watch this match live at Wembley?
