Manchester United and Manchester City will lock horns in the traditional curtain raiser to the English football season on August 7 at Wembley stadium.
The Red Devils will be looking to avenge their FA cup semi-final loss against the Citizens. David De Gea, Ashley Young, and Phil Jones will be the additional players to probably turn out for United this year. While the Citizens will have Sergio Aguero with their star player Carlos Tevez still uncertain to play. Other additions to the Citizens squad this summer have been Stefan Savic from FC Partizan and Gael Clichy from Arsenal.
United have been the most successful club in the Community Shield History having won the title 18 times including the last two seasons.
Fans of the Red Devils will be naturally excited to see their summer signings playing in their first competitive match. With Wayne Rooney, Nani, Smalling all one year older and wise, things seem to be good for United. Their also have been strong rumours about Sneijder joining the club. Javier Hernandez will miss the match as he is awaiting his recovery from concussion suffered during United's Tour of the States.
Manchester City new striker Sergio Aguero, brought in for a transfer fee of £ 38 million will be handed his debut in this match.
Both teams have had good pre-season preparations with United finally beating Barcelona 2-1 and Manchester City comfortably won 3-0 against Inter Milan in the Dublin Super Cup.
