FA Community Shield

Result: Chelsea 0-2 Manchester City

Date: 05 August 2018

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Premier League champions Manchester City began the new season with a trophy as they defeated Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Community Shield on Sunday afternoon.

Aguero returned the City line up alongside Leroy Sane, Riyad Mahrez and Bernado Silva, while Jorginho made his official debut for the Blues.

The Argentine forward opened the scoring for Pep Guardioala’s charges in the 13th minute with a close range finish that brought up his 200th goal for City.

Alvaro Morata had a rare chance for the Blues in the 25th minute, but he shot over the crossbar with time and space on his side.

Bernardo Silva was a real threat for Man City after half-an-hour, easily edging the Blues’ Jorginho in the middle of the park.

City were comfortable on the ball in the final stage of the half as Maurizio Sarri’s men were failing to press them deep.

As a result, Guardiola’s troops managed to go into the break with a 1-0 advantage.

Aguero had a chance to double the lead for City and five minutes into the second stanza after going through on goal but he hit the side-netting with Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero closing the angle.

The Argentine forward was not to be denied two minutes before the hour after going through from 15-yards out to complete his brace.

Mahrez had a good chance to make it 3-0 for the Citizens 20 minutes before time after being setup from just outside the box, but he guided his effort slightly wide.

With 15 minutes remaining, Aguero almost completed his hat-trick with a volleyed strike at the back post but Caballero produced a great stop.

Chelsea offered very little going forward and had almost thrown in the towel with ten minutes to go.

Gabriel Jesus had a chance to get on the scoresheet for City five minutes before time after going through inside the box but Caballero kept the score respectable for the Blues, as the encounter ended 2-0.
