Community Shield 2018: Chelsea vs Man City predictions, stats and betting tips

Sarri met Pep Guardiola's Manchester City last season in the Champions League group stages. On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.

City stormed to the Premier League title in record-breaking fashion last season, as well as winning the Carabao Cup.

He is in line to start for Chelsea in the Community Shield. 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.

Chelsea winger Willian made his long-awaited return to first team training on Saturday as the Blues prepare for their clash against Manchester City at Wembley.

The outcome of the Community Shield doesn't matter, but any opportunity to watch a master at work is to be savoured and the brilliance of the former Napoli player might just leave the Premier League champions with sour taste in the mouth.

"It's clear since the first day I arrived we want him, but the deals are the deals, and the agents are the agents, and the players are the players".

Red Planet Mars Comes Closer to Earth Like Never Before Today
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest in almost 60,000 years at 34.6 million miles (55.7 million km) apart. This close distance puts Mars at its brightest appearance in the night sky since the 2003 opposition.

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

The new Manager clearly wanted a former player to lead the way as he aimed to bring a new style of football to the Bridge and the 26-year-old looks the flawless conductor for the Sarri orchestra. "We need Jorginho more than City, so it's right that Jorginho is here", Sarri said.

"Yes, we were close but in the end Jorginho chose to stay with Maurizio", said Guardiola, who has welcomed all of his FIFA World Cup stars back to training, with the exception of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling. "They have worked together for two years and we started two weeks and a half ago".

Manchester United finished a staggering 19 points behind their cross-city rivals as Jose Mourinho missed out on silverware. "I'm going to learn a lot to see him every weekend", said Guardiola ahead of Sunday's traditional curtain-raiser at Wembley.

"We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics [would be a good fit]". Both sides have four victories apiece in the fixture.

"I'm sure he'll be coming back with the upmost confidence having won the World Cup and played a very important role in doing that".
