Pep Guardiola sends message to new Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri

Pep Guardiola and Maurizio Sarri

On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.

City became the first Premier League side to reach 100 points, as well as enjoying the most wins and scoring the most goals en route to claiming the title with a gap of 19 points to Manchester United.

Another player unaffected by this summer's World Cup, Laporte will hope to use the Community Shield to prove he deserves to be a starter for Man City in 2018/19. Both teams have each won the shield four times and the victor on Sunday will become the sixth club to win the competition at least five times.

Maurizio Sarri has indicated towards picking a similar starting lineup as he did against Arsenal as Chelsea prepare to face Manchester City on Sunday.

"I think always a player's dream is to play the World Cup because it is the most fascinating tournament every four years, the most fascinating, lovely and exciting tournament in the world", he said.

Sarri also heaped praise on Manchester City's Premier League winning coach Pep Guardiola ahead of tomorrows showdown, and also revealed that the lack of time he has had to get his ideas across to his players will be a significant factor.

They left the rest so far behind last season that they didn't even have to glance over their shoulders.

For Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas is a doubt with a minor knee injury.

"They're all top quality players, but for whatever reason over the course of the season, Pep managed to get the best out of his players more often than not".

Key player: Jorginho - The Brazil-born Italy worldwide seemed bound for Manchester City until Chelsea appointed his Napoli manager, Sarri. "But in this moment of the season it's very important, the performance".

"But deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players, so I don't know what is going to happen". "We need Jorginho more than City, so it's right that Jorginho is here", Sarri said. Both sides have four victories apiece in the fixture.

Willian is likely to be on the bench at Wembley, while Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois are expected to miss out altogether as they're yet to return to training.

Maurizio Sarri has given Chelsea fans an insight into what we could be looking for in the transfer market between now and the end of the week. "I can say that I am very lucky to be here".
