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

Pep Guardiola

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri acknowledged that Manchester City were far superior to Chelsea as they ran out 2-0 winners in the Community Shield at Wembley. Right now, it is Bernardo and 10 players more.

Eden Hazard, Willian, Thibaut Courtois, Michy Batshuayi and N'Golo Kante are all yet to return to Chelsea training and make themselves available for selection. The Manchester City boss only has Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne missing in action after their World Cup commitments.

Manchester City are the winners of the 2018 Community Shield - but you already knew that unless you've been asleep all day.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated as Maurizio Sarri pounced to reunite with the player he managed at Napoli. He even agreed to join Manchester City, only for Chelsea to steal Jorginho in the 11th hour. "That is good. Him with Gabriel [Jesus] in that position we are in a good position".

Manchester City: Bravo 4, Walker 7, Stones 6, Laporte 6, Mendy 7, Sane 6, Bernardo 8, Fernandinho 6, Mahrez 7, Foden 7, Aguero 8.

One man who who has taken his chance is Phil Foden with the future looking brighter than ever for the Man City player.

Arsenal hoisted the 2017 FA Community Shield trophy, the FA recounted, defeating Chelsea in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw in regular time. 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. The basic aspects were that the lack of cohesion Chelsea had in the midfield as City matched Chelsea's numbers and won them with qualitative superiority.

A midfield marvel set to be unleashed.

Welcome to English football, Jorginho.

But Serie A is played at a far more sedate speed compared to the Premier League, and the all-action midfielder has some work to do. As far as matters on the pitch is concerned, Maurizio Sarri will look towards the Italian worldwide to run the show from the middle of the park and create the chances for his teammates in the final third.

Alonso was one of Chelsea's standout performers in a disappointing season, scoring seven times as he was named in the PFA Team of the Year. The Blues' new £57 million man Jorginho looked off the pace after losing the ball on a few occasions while Hudson-Odoi was the main threat on the break.

Football fans don't always pay too much attention to the Community Shield but this year's edition had an interesting subplot. But, the FA Cup holders shouldn't have it easy at all, with City likely to give them a run for their money. The team's 32 wins out of the season's 38 games was also a new record, as was the total of 106 goals scored.
