Sarri admits there is a big difference between Chelsea and Manchester City

Sarri admits there is a big difference between Chelsea and Manchester City

Will Sarri's smooth start continue? .

'This was the first game, now we need to prepare for the next one.

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. Pep said of Sarri.

The Italian was wanted by Guardiola this summer but instead opted for a £50m switch to Stamford Bridge, to link up with his former Napoli boss Sarri. The various England youth age groups have been tasting plenty of success on the global stage but so far only a handful of those exciting starlets have made the breakthrough in the Premier League.

Against a weakened Manchester City side, Jorginho has a relatively easier initiation into English football.

Sarri has only been working with the Chelsea squad for two weeks but says they must quickly improve ahead of the Premier League opener next weekend.

"Our mentality was right and we got the win".

Even though he wasn't playing, his name was all over social media.

"In the second half there was a big difference between us and City from the physical point of view, so we have to work", he said. Under the rules of the FA Community Shield, in the event of a level score after 90 minutes, the teams go straight to the penalty shootout, with no extra time played.

Chelsea have lost their last four appearances in the Community Shield and City have lost two of their three most recently played. But, the Englishman is likely to start on the bench against Manchester City.

The Community Shield is an official honour but it's not much more than a glorified friendly in reality and with the two teams having much bigger fish to fry in future and with injury and fitness doubts aplenty, it's a very hard game to predict but preference for me is with Chelsea.

Sergio Aguero, brushing aside Argentina World Cup woes, scored twice and was only denied a rare Community Shield hat-trick due to his compatriot Willy Caballero's outstanding save. "More than 30 degrees, in those conditions it was tough in the first half", he said.

Despite Sterling's impasse with City's owners, Guardiola has made it clear that he intends on keeping the player and insisted that the acquisition of Riyad Mahrez will not impact on his role in the team. Although Foden played in City's final game of last season, it was only to ensure he won a title medal, but this season he clearly has every intention of becoming a permanent fixture.

The chances of a keenly contested tie on Sunday look slim.

Both sides were hampered by World Cup absentees.

City outplayed Chelsea on the hallowed turf of Wembley in a one-sided game that flattered Chelsea somewhat by only finishing 2-0, with Sergio Aguero scoring the elusive 200th goal of his City career before adding another later on.
