Georginio Wijnaldum was the only player to miss, with Gabriel Jesus scoring the winning spot-kick as City won 5-4. 

The game had ended 90 minutes after normal time, with Raheem Sterling's first-half goal cancelled out by Joel Matip 10 minutes from time. 

City, who handed a debut to new signing Rodri in midfield, were the better side in the first half despite losing Leroy Sane to an injury early on. 

They deservedly led thanks to Sterling's early strike but Liverpool improved after the break to play their part in an entertaining game. 

Matip's goal forced the game to penalties, with Wijnaldum's miss eventually setting the stage for Jesus to fire home as City won a fifth successive domestic trophy in England -- Community Shield, League Cup, Premier League, FA Cup, Community Shield.
