Tournament: 2018 FA Community Shield.
Maurizio Sarri has decided not to act rashly and meanwhile nobody has left the team during this shoulder season, even Victor Moses who really doesn’t fit into the gaming model of the Italian coach.
The match for Community Shield will take place between the matches of ICC in which Chelsea still takes part. In the first game of the tournament the Londoners have won over Inter in penalty shootout (1:1, 5:4 penalty). All five football players who were shooting were accurate including the beginner Jorginho who has moved from Napoli after his coach.
Parisian PSG wants to sign the contract with N’Golo Kanté but meanwhile the Frenchman stays with the Blues. At the same time the midfielder is still resting after the World Cup, which was successful for the national team.
Since the game for Chelsea only Pedro has managed to score and that was he was has scored a goal to Perth Glory (1:0) in frames of the debut match of shoulder season.
The team of Guardiola much earlier, than its future rival has introduced into the ICC and therefore they have been getting ready for the match for the 2018 FA Community Shield for a week.
After defeats from Borussia (0:1) and Liverpool (1:2) the Citizens were stronger than Bayern (3:2). Bernardo Silva has scored two goals in this match. He has substituted Riyad Mahrez on the 27th minute. But the injury of the newcomer of Manchester City was not so serious. So he will be able to help the champion of England in Sunday fight for a trophy.
The starting lineup of the Citizens – according to the coach – is absolutely completed. Rumors about possible moving of Oleksandr Zinchenko to Wolverhampton remain to be still rumors so far. He is actively training and playing for his current team.
In frames of the championship last season Manchester City has twice won over the rival with the score 1:0. Those matches became delegation of power from the owner of a trophy of the winner of the EPL 2017 to the champion 2018.

You shouldn’t wait from Sarri for a title from the first match. But we also won’t witness the style which Antonio Conte has demonstrated in the matches with the Citizens. His motto was “if only not to lose deadly. This Italian coach will begin to charm Stamford Bridge by the attacking and beautiful football. So if his team “dies”, then definitely not with under betting.
