Manchester City players celebrate their victory on the pitch after the English FA Community Shield football match against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. (Glyn KIRK/AFP) Blues boss Sarri, hired to replace the sacked Antonio Conte last month, endured a miserable debut in the prestigious friendly at Wembley as lacklustre Chelsea were swept aside by Premier League champions City. Picking up where they left off in their record-breaking campaign last term, Pep Guardiola's team took an early lead through Aguero, who rewarded City's dominance with a second goal after the break. The last side to win the Community Shield and then go on to clinch the Premier League title were Manchester United in 2010-11. On this evidence, City could follow in their arch rivals' footsteps at the end of the … [Read more...] about Aguero ruins Sarri’s Chelsea bow as Manchester City win Community Shield
