Community Shield: Pep Guardiola confirms injury boost for Manchester City

Gabriel Jesus signs new two year deal with Man City to earn KSh 13 million-a-week

Gabriel Jesus signs new two year deal with Man City to earn KSh 13 million-a-week

Chelsea have not had the best luck in the curtain-raiser losing their past three matches in the Community Shield, in 2017 and 2015 when beaten by Arsenal and 2012 when Man City got the better of them.

Others will be missing, however, with Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling not due to start training until Monday after the World Cup delayed their summer break.

In contrast, Sarri has had to work his way up from lower-league managerial jobs and is yet to win a major competition despite enjoying an impressive spell at home-town club Napoli which saw him land the Chelsea role. "But I want to stay here for a long time".

"I talked with the club about the market but only one or maybe two times, no more".

A high-octane set-up and such an adjustment to their work under Antonio Conte means Chelsea's players are likely to need more time to adapt to Sarri's attempts to bring a thrilling style. The midfielder played only 17 games in Spain, mostly as a substitute, but has impressed during pre-season to the extent Guardiola believes he can deputise for Fernandinho. Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too. The Italian coach only arrived at the club three weeks ago, yet judging from the Blues' pre-season performances, it seems the players at his disposal have taken his footballing philosophy to heart. Antonio (Conte) was. I am delighted that players with this style of play will be flawless for English football. "I hope that I can keep making the fans happy". Chelsea won the FA Cup in Conte's final match in charge, after finishing fifth as City won the league title at a canter. "We are going to try and convince the federation or the guys who decide the work permit to allow him to stay because I think he has potential to play and improve with us".

For Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas is a doubt with a minor knee injury.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of the club, of Chelsea", Sarri added.
