Five things we learned from the Community Shield

Guardiola will also want to send out a statement of intent ahead of the kick off of the new Premier League season next weekend.

Upfront, Alvaro Morata will be aiming to exorcise the demons of the 2017-18 season, looking to kickstart the new campaign on a positive note.

Asked if City would swoop before Thursday's transfer deadline, Guardiola said: "I don't know".

Diaz was able to force Caballero into one more save in stoppage-time, when Rudiger threw himself in front of Silva's attempt to add gloss to the scoreline.

"The players are in bad, bad condition and hopefully this week we have seven days and the next week seven days more where we can increase our level".

"Now we're set for the next one and prepare game by game and we'll arrive in April, May and June and it depends what we've done during the process". With him scoring goals City look formidable as they embark on their title defence.

Winning over Guardiola was arguably Aguero's greatest achievement however as the Spaniard had doubts about his ability to fit into a style of play that demands mobile forwards. "That is good. Him with Gabriel (Jesus), we have, in that position, good options". The inconvenient tour didn't teach anyone anything and new signing, Mahrez, even managed to pick up an injury although he will play on Sunday.

City's 18-year-old midfielder has always been tipped for stardom and Guardiola believes the England Under-17 World Cup victor is on the brink of a breakthrough campaign.

Guardiola was effusive in his praise of Foden post-match, saying: "Phil is part of the team. He did really well", Guardiola said.

Maurizio Sarri, the latest man to enter the revolving Chelsea manager's door, takes charge of his first "competitive" game for The Blues on Sunday after two decent enough matches in the International Champions Cup in France and Ireland, against Inter Milan last Saturday, and London rivals, Arsenal, on Wednesday.

The protracted negotiations to bring Sarri in from Napoli severely restricted his time to start implementing his philosophy on the Blues - he was only appointed three weeks ago.

"The second half was a difference from the physical point of view".

"We were not in control of the match".

The Premier League season is upon us, and a raft of questions and queries surround each team. The likes of Thibaut Courtois, Gary Cahill, N'Golo Kante, Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud are scheduled to return to training next week.

This afternoon's fixture lay somewhere in the middle of that spectrum, as both teams wanted to start their campaign with a win in the season's inaugural event, but both coaches were willing to field youth players and offer them a taste of the big occasion. "It's not very easy".
