Foden ready to shine, says Guardiola

Manchester City GETTY Manchester City prepare for Chelsea challenge
Ivan Hill | 06 August, 2018, 12:44

Aguero scored both goals in a 2-1 win.

Manchester City set a series of records in staking their claim to be the greatest English top-flight team of all time.

It was a dress rehearsal for the genuinely big games to come for both Chelsea and Manchester City, and the Premier League champions looked the much superior side.

Kante's absence was highlighted time and again as City pinched balls in unsafe areas and ran at a cumbersome rearguard.

Guardiola celebrated City's opener, made by Foden and converted by Aguero, with gusto, as Sarri returned to the bench to converse with Gianfranco Zola, the former Chelsea playmaker and now assistant manager.

The Community Shield has been contested by the FA Cup winners and the League Champions since 1974 and the FA Cup winners are on a run of four straight victories. City finished 30 points ahead of Chelsea.

And when asked whether the 18-year-old was now ready for the Premier League this term, the City boss was unequivocal in his reply. "He arrived so sharp, so good", he said. I think he is the guy most beloved in our team and today he showed me a lot of things. They defeated Chelsea 2-0 but it should have been a bigger winning margin.

"The performance of Bernardo Silva was a masterpiece", he told reporters after the match.

Manchester United may turn their attention to Bayern's Jerome Boateng
Officials at Manchester United aren't ready to splash the cash mindlessly and have had a reserved stance on transfer this summer. And this development has led to United calling off their pursuit of Mina and turning their attention back towards Alderweireld.


Although England missed out on World Cup glory in Russian Federation _ losing in the semifinals to Croatia _ the country still did win a World Cup in the previous year.

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.

City looked the stronger, more cohesive unit throughout. It only took 12 and a half minutes for the deadlock to be broken as Phil Foden slipped the ball into Aguero following a probing run, leaving the Argentine to do the rest. Yet the situation changed when Sarri, who built his Napoli side around Jorginho, ended his wait to join Chelsea.

With N'Golo Kante unavailable they looked the opposite of City, with play pedestrian and touches frequently heavy, especially in the final third.

Guardiola wants to sign a player who can be an alternative option to Fernandinho at the base of City's midfield, but time is running out to get a deal done.

Sarri wants to hear the message directly from Courtois.

"I have no reaction on the agent". "I have to speak with my club. I don't have any answer to the agent".

Premier League clubs have until Thursday to sign players after the close of the transfer window was brought forward to before the season opens.
