The latest iteration of the Community Shield did not disappoint.
Two of England’s best locked horns in the clash of the champion and the runner-up from last year’s Premier League season. It was Pep Guardiola against Jurgen Klopp and once again it was the Catalan manager who exited the bout victorious.
But it was truly a tight affair as 90 minutes could not yield a clear winner so a penalty shootout had to do the trick.
Still, Jamie Carragher posed an interesting question just before the kick-off.
The Liverpool icon took to Instagram to share a throwback photo from the time the Reds managed to clinch the title themselves, but he wondered should the Community Shield even be considered as a trophy.

Many had their say in the comment sections below and the opinions seem to be rather divided on the matter among the fans, if their replies are anything to go by.
One thing is for sure, though, it is a real trophy if you win it, and Manchester City are definitely celebrating it like that.
