OUR first dose of the new season comes in the way of Leicester vs Man City in the FA Community Shield at Wembley this weekend.
City will hope to begin their campaign with a winning start ahead of their Premier League title defence.
While Brendan Rodgers’ side took a huge step in the right direction last season as they finished fifth and beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
It’s unknown how strong both line-ups will be as the two managers will have one eye on the start of the new Premier League season.
Ahead of the fight for silverware, we have teamed with some of the UK’s leading bookmakers to offer up to £180 in free bets.
