." The former defender highlighted how Liverpool have sent out a strong message to Premier League champions City: "When you win the Community Shield it is very important because it lays down a marker for the rest of the season. It is an opportunity to show that as a team you’re ready – your new signings are ready, the players are fit. "Winning the trophy gives you a lot of confidence before you start the Premier League season, so for Liverpool I think it's good because they’ve sent out a strong message to Manchester City.
