Sergio Aguero double helps Manchester City sweep Chelsea aside

Sergio Aguero double helps Manchester City sweep Chelsea aside

Pep Guardiola has revealed that fear of failure has been the driving force behind his spectacular success at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now Manchester City as he prepares for the new soccer campaign.

On this evidence, City could follow in their archrivals' footsteps at the end of the season.

But Guardiola says that the Community Shield match marks not a continuation of his team's historic 2017/2018 season - but a new beginning.

But that was the only sour note for City as they got back in the groove in impressive style.

The arrival of Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, who played in all of his team's matches at the World Cup, provides a solution to Liverpool's one obvious weakness, and should mean Juergen Klopp's team is a genuine contender for the Premier League title this season.

However, with Conte now gone and replaced by Maurizio Sarri, Willian is looking ahead to a sixth season as a Chelsea player.

Sterling was a revelation last season for the Citizens.

In stark contrast Chelsea looked like a side unused to what they're supposed to be doing.

Airstrikes on Yemeni hospital and market kill at least 55
In Hodeidah , one of the Yemeni army's largest offensives against the Houthi rebels is underway. There was no immediate comment from the Saudi-led coalition.

The two sides last faced off against each other in this tie back in 2012, when Manchester City ran out close 3-2 winners over Chelsea.

"Of course, winning 2-0, it was easier". During his time at Napoli, Sarri fielded a midfield three of Allan, Jorginho and Marek Hamsik.

Jorginho, signed as the central tenant of 'Sarri-ball, ' was guilty of wastefulness and frequently gave possession away.

Foden's incisive run ended with a simple pass to the unmarked Aguero, who applied the finishing touch with a fine low strike from the edge of the area.

Sergio Aguero slots into the striking position with little threat after yet another stunning season last term which returned 30 goals across all competitions, where he will no doubt pick up from where he left off as the 2018/19 campaign kicks-off.

The one bright spark was 17-year-old winger Callum Hudson-Odoi who delivered another fine pre-season performance, unsettling City with his pace as he sought to provide striker Alvaro Morata with the right sort of service.

Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante and Thibaut Courtois were among the high-profile absentees that Chelsea's manager had to deal without against a surprisingly strong City side boasting six of their World Cup stars in the starting line-up. That goal was AGUERO's 200th in a Manchester City shirt, a record. Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, or Ruben Loftus-Cheek will all hope to make it theirs, but the answer to this problem could lie in the transfer market.

Afforded all the time he wanted, he beat Caballero to open the scoring and took his second well, drifting behind Luiz to collect Silva's pass and find the near post.
