Man City boss Guardiola lauds Bernardo Silva 'masterpiece'

Cesc Fabregas

Sergio Aguero finally reached 200 goals for Manchester City as his double saw Pep Guardiola's side overcome Chelsea 2-0 in the Community Shield at Wembley.

Aguero then set up Foden, whose low drive was stopped by the Chelsea keeper, but with 58 minutes gone Aguero put City 2-0 up.

The big-name players who are available though, are Leroy Sane, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, Claudio Bravo and record signing Riyad Mahrez, all of whom should feature against Chelsea.

Chelsea, under new manager Maurizio Sarri's 4-3-3 formation, looked defensively fragile and offensively blunt.

Some of their lethargy going forward could be put down to the heat, which made it hard for both sides to sustain any sort of tempo.

"He was training last season with us and he fought well with all of our players".

With both Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva absent, Foden was handed a starting berth in midfield alongside Fernandinho and the excellent Bernardo Silva.

But they produced a controlled and efficient performance to secure their third piece of silverware in the past six months.

Those affected economies have in turn targeted USA agricultural products, including soybeans, dairy, meat, produce and liquor. Benchmark U.S. 10-year notes last fell 5/32 in price to yield 2.9542 percent, from 2.936 percent late on Wednesday.

The match not just pits two of the most successful English teams in the last decade, but also two managers who share similar ideologies in terms of style of play.

"I didn't expect that level in that period after a short, short training session, like from Fernandinho, Sergio - majority".

But healing the wounds of Conte's fractious two-year reign - which ended with Chelsea 30 points behind City in fifth place - won't be easy for Sarri, as this spluttering performance underlined.

Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero (3rd L) shoots to score their second goal during the English FA Community Shield football match between Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium in north London on August 5, 2018.

"I believe we can keep them here and keep them happy, but we will only see when we sit down with them".

But he will arguably never score a more important goal than his 94th minute victor against Queens Parks Rangers in May 2012 that secured City's first league title for 44 years. But with Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante among those to return after the World Cup, it is too soon to make a judgement after more managerial turmoil.

"I think at the end of last season, the knee operation.he suffered the previous years with a little bit of a problem and Ramon Cugat, the best doctor in the world, made the ideal surgery and now he feels free". With him scoring goals City look formidable as they embark on their title defence. Pedro almost pulled one back for Chelsea but his curled effort rolled just wide before David Luiz was inches away from netting an own goal.

"We made it clear from the day I arrived we want him, but deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players. I want to congratulate the Chelsea players for they did the same effort like us", the Spaniard reflected after the game.
