Late Iheanacho penalty fires Leicester past Man City in Community Shield

The former City striker, who departed the Etihad Stadium four years ago, settled a generally lacklustre curtain-raiser to the new domestic season at Wembley.

Iheanacho came off the bench in the 79th minute and was brought down by Nathan Ake in the closing minutes.

The Nigerian international, who scored 19 goals for the Foxes last term, calmly slotted the ball beyond goalkeeper Zack Steffen from 12 yards out to give the FA Cup winners the spoils.

Liverpool remain unbeaten in EPL

The victory was inspired in large part by attacking right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold who created three goals and scored one himself.

Popping up in the inside-left position, Alexander-Arnold floated a pinpoint cross to the backpost for Brazilian Firmino to head Liverpool into the lead in the 31st minute.

Liverpool were utterly dominant but had to wait until the 71st minute to extend their lead when Alexander-Arnold's corner was handled by Caglar Soyuncu and substitute James Milner slotted home the penalty with his first touch of the ball.

Liverpool and United victorious

With Chelsea and table-topping Manchester City playing later in the week, Liverpool registered their second win in 48 hours after the Estonian popped up with his first league goal.

On the blue half of Merseyside, Manchester United climbed back up to second in the table after second-half goals by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard earned a 2-0 victory at Everton -- their first win in five games in all competitions.

EPL top four fight to go down to last day

City need a point from their final match to be absolutely sure of Champions League football after they beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 while fifth-placed Arsenal stayed in the hunt by beating relegated Sunderland 2-0.

Gabriel de Jesus, Kevin de Bruyne and Yaya Toure scored City's goals as they moved two points above Liverpool in third.

With a superior goal difference of five to that of Arsenal, who are three points behind, it would take a big turnaround to deny City.
