A late penalty from Kelechi Iheanacho was enough to ensure Leicester City beat Premier League champions Manchester City to win the 2021 Community Shield on Saturday, the second in the club’s history.

With the game still tied 0-0, Pep Guardiola brought on Man City’s British record signing Jack Grealish shortly after the hour mark for his first runout at his new club following his arrival from Aston Villa.

With the game looking like it was heading for a shootout, Iheanacho drew a foul on Man City defender Nathan Ake and the referee pointed to the spot before the Nigeria international converted his penalty for victory.

Manchester City begin their Premier League campaign on August 15 away to Tottenham Hotspur, while Leicester City host Wolves the day before.
