'We can get even better', Guardiola warns City's rivals

Community Shield penalty shootout rules Why is ABBA system in use at Chelsea vs Man City

Riyad Mahrez has been handed a starting berth for Manchester City against Chelsea in the Community Shield clash at Wembley.

The English season got off to a familiar start as Manchester City's Sergio Aguero struck twice, including his 200th goal for the club, as they beat Chelsea 2-0 to claim the Community Shield for the fifth time at a sun-baked Wembley on Sunday. The tie-up would represent the largest commercial deal in the club's history and would be the third biggest deal in the Premier League behind cross-city rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.

Phil Foden drove at the heart of the Chelsea defence to set up City's 13th-minute opener with little resistance from Jorginho or anyone else.

If Guardiola needs to make changes then he can look to his bench, where his options include Gabriel Jesus and Vincent Kompany. "He arrived so sharp, so good", he said.

City's 18-year-old midfielder has always been tipped for stardom and Guardiola believes the England Under-17 World Cup victor is on the brink of a breakthrough campaign.

Guardiola heaped praise on man-of-the-match Aguero after his match-winning brace and Silva for a "masterpiece" of a performance that ensures he is the first name on the team sheet against Arsenal.

Picking up where they left off in their record-breaking campaign last term, Pep Guardiola's team took an early lead through Aguero, who rewarded City's dominance with a second goal after the break.

Chelsea, less than a month into Maurizio Sarri's reign as manager, lacked a presence in attack and managed only one shot on target, a long-range strike by 17-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi which Claudio Bravo fumbled to safety. This comes after managers complained about players leaving teams having already played several games for their original club during a domestic season. "Our pre-season until now has been a bit insane I think and so we have to work".

Sarri has still not seen six of his players after the World Cup, including unsettled Belgian stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, who are both linked with Real Madrid. "It's not very easy".

"In the next week we have a friendly match again (against Lyon) and I prefer in this moment to stay on the pitch with the players only for training".
