The England 2018/2019 football season gets underway on Sunday with the traditional FA Community Shield match pitting the previous season's FA Cup victor against the champion of the English Premier League, as The Sun explains, which this year means that the game will feature an elite-level top-flight clash between Chelsea, winners of the FA Cup, and multiple-record-setting Premier League champions Manchester City in a game that will live stream from London.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes the Blues need to bring in just one more player before the transfer window shuts down.
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.
With N'Golo Kante unavailable they looked the opposite of City, with play pedestrian and touches frequently heavy, especially in the final third. The Manchester City boss only has Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne missing in action after their World Cup commitments. The Italian worldwide will look to dictate the play from the middle of the park, with Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko giving him company in the midfield trio, with Cesc Fabregas likely to miss out due to a knee injury.
Sarri has only been working with the Chelsea squad for two weeks but says they must quickly improve ahead of the Premier League opener next weekend. As the Londoners wilted in the heat, Man City's football got even slicker, and it was only thanks to Willy Caballero that the game ended 2-0.

The women and children seemed to be very "intimidated" by the men and were potentially "brainwashed", the sheriff said. Deputies found no fresh water and only "a few potatoes and a box of rice" for food in the filthy trailer.
Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva, who was the only World Cup player to have any minutes on their preseason tour to the United States, was picked out for special praise. "Now, his knee is ideal, he arrived in a very good condition, a good mood and most important is he scores goals and creates chances".
Danny Drinkwater - 5 - Didn't make much of impact on the game.
The big-name players who are available though, are Leroy Sane, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Bernardo Silva, Claudio Bravo and record signing Riyad Mahrez, all of whom should feature against Chelsea.
Chelsea fans were voicing their frustrations throughout the contest and three players in particular received the strongest criticism. He is 26 and much more will be expected in the harsh climate of the Premier League where you either sink or swim. 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. "We will see at the end of the season what our level is". The work [training] has been very long sometimes, at other times not. He retrieves the ball before it goes out, though. 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.
