Sarri v Guardiola - the verdict after their tactical battle at Wembley

Manchester City

The England 2018/2019 football season gets underway on Sunday with the traditional FA Community Shield match pitting the previous season's FA Cup victor against the champion of the English Premier League, as The Sun explains, which this year means that the game will feature an elite-level top-flight clash between Chelsea, winners of the FA Cup, and multiple-record-setting Premier League champions Manchester City in a game that will live stream from London.

That initial concern has been banished by Aguero's relentless appetite for goals and he became the first player in City's history to score 200 times for the club when he opened the scoring in the 13th minute against Chelsea.

Some of their lethargy going forward could be put down to the heat, which made it hard for both sides to sustain any sort of tempo.

Sterling helped Man City win the Premier League title last season in record breaking fashion, however, even though he played in an England side that reached the semi-final of the World Cup this summer, his performances in Russian Federation were less than remarkable and could be what's stalling his demand for higher wages.

With both Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva absent, Foden was handed a starting berth in midfield alongside Fernandinho and the excellent Bernardo Silva.

Manchester City make as many headlines in off season as they do during the campaign.

Chelsea have so far signed just two players in the summer transfer window: midfielder Jorginho and third-choice goalkeeper Rob Green.

Bookkeepers and accountants are expected to testify in the third day of trial for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort . Manafort faces charges of bank fraud and tax evasion that could put him in prison for the rest of his life.

"Sergio always has a little bit with his physicality - maybe he needs a little bit more time to take his physical condition".

In truth Foden and his team mates were helped in their task by Chelsea's defence, which looked all at sea against City's interchanging attackers.

Manchester City ran out 2-0 winners over Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon. We've seen that before.

Two-goal Aguero was replaced by Vincent Kompany, with the Belgium defender untroubled as City strolled to the most comfortable of Wembley victories, Jesus denied their third goal by Caballero's save but Moses nearly pulling one back after a scramble late on. Pep Guardiola's team were in total control against a Chelsea side definitely missing the tiresome workrate of N'Golo Kante.

Both goals came courtesy of fine team moves - and both were started by City's centre-backs.

Antonio Rudiger grew into his role at Stamford Bridge last season following his move from Roma, where he quickly made Chelsea a tougher proposition in the defensive third. I am so happy for the players and it's good to start with one title by our side. Manchester United beat them 3-2 in 2011 and Arsenal beat them 3-0 four years ago, two years after City beat this week's opponents 3-2 at Villa Park.

They will report today, and Sarri added: "It's a long way we have to work". Pedro almost pulled one back for Chelsea but his curled effort rolled just wide before David Luiz was inches away from netting an own goal. "We can see there are some issues we need to resolve, but I believe we have a squad that can challenge for trophies this season at this moment".
