FA Community Shield

Teams: Chelsea v Manchester City

Date: 05 August 2018

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Premier League champions Manchester City will tackle FA Cup champions Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h00.

The Blues care competing in the Shield clash for the second straight season after they lost to Arsenal on penalties in last year's match.

City come into the clash in a mix bag of form, having only won one of their three International Champions Cup matches.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that new Riyad Mahrez will feature, although Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are not available.

Chelsea also spent their pre-season in America and they finished off their tour with a 6-5 penalty shoot-out loss to the Gunners on Wednesday.

New signing Jorginho is expected to play as he has done in the previous pre-season encounters, while Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and N'Golo Kante are not available.

Here's how they line up:

Man City: Bravo, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Sane, Bernardo, Mendy, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Foden, Aguero.

Chelsea: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Fabregas, Barkley, Pedro, Hudson-Odoi, Morata.
