Manchester City beat Chelsea to win Community Shield

Manchester City beat Chelsea to win Community Shield

"The players are in bad, bad conditions", Guardiola said.

City were quicker and more inventive than their opponents and were in total control throughout an entertaining afternoon, and the only disappointment was we didn't score more goals.

Gabriel Jesus has fired a warning to Manchester City's title rivals by insisting the reigning Premier League champions are the front-runners to win a second-consecutive title.

With Agüero becoming the first City player to break the 200-goal barrier, Guardiola saluted the club's record scorer for the latest display of his predatory instincts. Aguero finished off a brilliant breakaway move, started by Stones who won the ball brilliantly on the edge of his own area, to make it 2-0 and put the game beyond Chelsea's reach.

But ominously for Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United - all hoping to dethrone City - Guardiola revealed his players are still well short of full fitness after only a handful of training sessions following the World Cup. Right now. But in 11 months it depends on what they show me on the pitch.

It was a management technique that Guardiola was happy to expand upon as he spoke before City's match against Chelsea at Wembley. But he arrived so sharp, so good.




Guardiola was effusive in his praise of Foden post-match, saying: "Phil is part of the team".

Already tipped for stardom after inspiring England to Under-17 World Cup glory, the 18-year-old played 10 times for City last season, but this term promises to be his breakthrough year.

But on Sunday he looked a proper first teamer, several times bursting forward from the halfway line to link well with the equally impressive Bernardo Silva and Aguero. "He did really well", Guardiola said.

While City tweak ahead of their Premier League opener, Sarri has major work to do.

"So, I think it's a long way we have to work".

What they lacked in sharpness they more than made up for in quality against a Chelsea side struggling for coherence under new boss Sarri.
