Sarri was without his best forward player, with Eden Hazard due back for post-World Cup pre-season training on Monday amid speculation Real Madrid want to sign him.

The backline should remain unchanged from the game against Arsenal, with David Luiz being solid at the heart of the Chelsea defence.

With each passing year throughout his eight-year spell with City the Spaniard has grown into a more complete player. "That's why it's so good to have another player with his talent and he's a Manchester City fan, he's Mancunian, so that's why, for us, he's so good".

Other than missing out on the aforementioned Jorginho signature (arguably understandable now given the managerial switch at Stamford Bridge), Manchester City aren't experiencing anywhere near the level of transfer turmoil of their rivals. Even though Chelsea possess a decent number of technically sound players, the change was never going to happen overnight.

His second came after the break, when he latched on to Bernardo Silva's pass and beat Willy Caballero with another precise low finish.

The Community Shield is an official honour but it's not much more than a glorified friendly in reality and with the two teams having much bigger fish to fry in future and with injury and fitness doubts aplenty, it's a very hard game to predict but preference for me is with Chelsea.

After a record-breaking season in which City amassed 100 points and scored 106 goals in the Premier League, Guardiola has signed only Riyad Mahrez and youngster Claudio Gomes this summer. The result will show who we are.

How could Chelsea line up after the transfer window ends?

He almost had hat-trick with a back-post volley from Kyle Walker's deep cross, but Caballero made one of many saves to deny him.

It was interesting to see Tiemoue Bakayoko not even named on the Chelsea bench against City.

The last four editions of the Community Shield have been won by reigning FA Cup holders, with Manchester United in 2013 the last reigning league champions to do so.

For Chelsea, Jorginho has been given a deep midfield role after joining the Blues in the Summer.

City boss Pep Guardiola believes Foden is now mature enough to cope with the demands of the Premier League and, having already labelled him a "gift" to the club, the Spaniard gave him a start against Chelsea.

Against a weakened Manchester City side, Jorginho has a relatively easier initiation into English football. Looked for all the world to be a third City goal.
