Pep Guardiola lauds Bernardo Silva: It's him and ten others

The season curtain-raiser went the way of last season's Premier League champions, with Sergio Aguero striking either side of half-time in a win far more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline suggests.

City may opt to use Mahrez centrally as Guardiola looks to manage the 32-year-old David Silva's game time.

In the United States, the start time for the FA Community Shield will be 10 a.m.

After their record-breaking title triumph last term, City showed they are still hungry as they seek to become the first team since Manchester United in 2009 to retain the crown. It was a management technique that Guardiola was happy to expand upon as he spoke before City's match against Chelsea at Wembley. Further forward, the returning Eden Hazard would be an upgrade on Lorenzo Insigne (there aren't many of those about) as the left sided forward who cuts inside.

"We didn't train a lot this week". They were comfortable on the ball, hardly allowed the opposition to gain the upper hand and overall were easily the better side. He was played clean in by Foden, he had all the time in the world and made a decision to round Caballero, but from a tight angle he hits the side netting. "My hat's off to them". "In four or five days we will know it". "I was focused on the final, so we will see".

"Kyle Walker trained just two training sessions", Guardiola said.

13' - GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 City.

It was a typically predatory finish and he netted again after the interval, prompting Guardiola to salute his star's sharpness at a stage of the season when many of his peers are still rusty.

"We don't have players to substitute Fernandinho".

And when Foden set up Aguero's first goal, it was with a burst through an area left untended by Jorginho.

"We have the idea to press". Often he needs time for his physical condition. "Now, his knee is ideal, he arrived in a very good condition, a good mood and most important is he scores goals and creates chances". In general, we made a good, good performance. The inconvenient tour didn't teach anyone anything and new signing, Mahrez, even managed to pick up an injury although he will play on Sunday. The 23-year-old England worldwide scored 18 goals in 33 appearances and assisted 11 more for his team-mates. "He did really well", Guardiola said.

Chelsea, over the course of the match, looked like a side consisting of players who were looking to find their feet in a new system, different from the past two seasons under Antonio Conte.

The protracted negotiations to bring Sarri in from Napoli severely restricted his time to start implementing his philosophy on the Blues - he was only appointed three weeks ago.

"We were not in control of the match".

The English soccer giants are widely reported to have agreed a technical partnership with the German sportswear brand worth UK£50 million (US$64.8 million) per year from the 2019/20 season. Continues to look like a player that will not be at the club for much longer. "It's not very easy".

"We have to do what we did last season, and remember the good things we did and the things that unfortunately didn't work out, learn from it and make this season better than the previous".
