2018 Community Shield – Man City 2-0 Chelsea
The Premier League champion won the first competitive game of the season in England thanks to a brace from Argentinian Sergio Aguero.
The team is locked to be the favorites to win it again after such an amazing 2017-18 campaign. Liverpool and Manchester United seem to be the only club that can rival the Citizens and stop them from repeating this season.
Coach Guardiola on the victory:
“We started well and played the level of last season with just five or six training sessions. The mentality was in the right position. It’s our third year so most of the things we practice we know, not like when you arrive.
We have to play with this attitude and what we have done. We’ll see at the end of the season what our level was.
When you win, you’re happy. We don’t have to think too much about defending the title. That was the first game – we have to prepare game by game.
In April and May, we will know. The result will show who we are. We’re not talking about having to win the Premier League title”.
Aguero has now passed the 200 goals mark with the club and comments on the performance:
“It was good to win the title so we are very happy and I am very happy to have scored but now we have to continue to win.
“Now it’s more important to win. The manager always says that we have to win, win, win so I am very happy.”
