Guardiola: I'm going to learn a lot from Maurizio Sarri

Man City boss Pep Guardiola aims dig at Chelsea new boy Jorginho GETTY Man City boss Pep Guardiola has aimed a dig at Chelsea new boy Jorginho

Eden Hazard has sought permission from Maurizio Sarri to report late for Chelsea duty, the new Blues manager has revealed. On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.

The 47-year-old Catalan will start the new Premier League season aiming to become the first manager since Alex Ferguson in 2009 to retain the biggest prize in English club football. Both teams have each won the shield four times and the victor on Sunday will become the sixth club to win the competition at least five times.

Jesus is one of a number of players back in the City reckoning after the World Cup, with Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling the only squad members yet to return to the fold.

Guardiola admitted the match comes at a tricky time without his full complement of players but said City were prepared and would target their fifth Community Shield win.

They left the rest so far behind last season that they didn't even have to glance over their shoulders.

Cesc Fabregas's ability to control the tempo of the game and take responsibility in the middle of the field sees him edge out his younger rivals.

"We tried in our short time together to review what we have done, analyse a little bit what Chelsea will be to try and see what we have to do, and play the final".


"I'm ready. From my point of view, the players don't have to be anxious". Manchester United beat them 3-2 in 2011 and Arsenal beat them 3-0 four years ago, two years after City beat this week's opponents 3-2 at Villa Park. The Citizens did the double over Chelsea last season but Chelsea haven't lost three in-a-row to City since 2010 and they might just stop the rot again here.

Pep said of Sarri.

"I think he [Pep Guardiola] is the best coach in the world right now, or one of the best", he added.

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 away kit!

"The match is very hard for one reason". Both managers have the utmost respect for each-other and neither side will be going hell for leather for victory.

When asked how close City had come to signing the 26-year-old, Guardiola said: "We were close but in the end Jorginho made a decision to stay with Sarri".

"I want to win because it is important to have an immediate trophy".
