Pep Guardiola is eyeing Community Shield silverware as reigning league champions Manchester City look to kick off the campaign on the right foot. On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.

Chelsea have not had the best luck in the curtain-raiser losing their past three matches in the Community Shield, in 2017 and 2015 when beaten by Arsenal and 2012 when Man City got the better of them. 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.

In each of the past two Community Shield matches, new signings have scored, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting for Manchester United against Leicester City in 2016 and Sead Kolasinac doing likewise for Arsenal a year ago.

"Gabriel has improved a lot since he came", Guardiola said at his press conference ahead of the weekend's Community Shield game against Chelsea. I'll be happy if we arrive at the end being there [in contention] in April and May. We started two and a half weeks ago.

In a new campaign ad he playfully jokes about the only thing to his candidacy is his close relationship with the president. So how did Jeff Greene do at the Trump protest? "After a while, you forget who's the senator", Trump said.

"We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics [would be a good fit]". Both managers have the utmost respect for each-other and neither side will be going hell for leather for victory. "But in this moment of the season it's very important, the performance".
