Community Shield Woe

By Gary Watton
August 5 2018

A goal in each half by Sergio Aguero ensured that the English champions enjoyed a comfortable triumph against a much-changed and lack lustre Chelsea. This was a painful reminder that without Hazard and Kante, Chelsea look much like a mediocre mid-table team. I was rather hoping that the Londoners would get demolished about five-nil, so that the numpties that run the club would be shocked into belatedly strengthening the squad. Quite frankly, if Chelsea lose more than two of the following and don't adequately replace them, then mid table will beckon: Courtois, Hazard, Kante, and Willian. Chelsea have been a car crash of a club all summer, procrastinating over the selection of a new manager and dilly-dallying over alterations to the squad. It was therefore quite fitting that the off-field shambles was mirrored by today's awful performance.

Community Shield: CHELSEA 0 Manchester City 2; half time: 0-1


CHELSEA: Caballero; Luiz; Rudiger; Azpilicueta; Jorginho; Alonso; Fabregas; Barkley; Hudson-Odoi; Morata; Pedro. Used substitutes: Drinkwater; Willian; Moses
