Manchester City started the new campaign as they finished the last one with another dominant performance, overcoming Chelsea 2-0 thanks to a brace from Sergio Aguero.

He was last season.

Brazilian-born Italian, Jorginho, a long-time target of Sunday's opponents, has followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea and it may not be long before the pair have Chelsea playing the sort of football that Pep Guardiola was gushing about before City took on Napoli in the Champions League past year.

On this evidence, City could follow in their archrivals' footsteps at the end of the season.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City are still short of their peak form.

But that was the only sour note for City as they got back in the groove in impressive style.

While to many the Community Shield is only a glorified friendly, some see it as a shot at silverware not to be sniffed at and Guardiola's pleasure was clear after adding to last season's Premier League and Carabao Cup crowns.

The Community Shield loss highlights some of the issues which might plague Chelsea as the season progresses, some of them include- Transfer market, the late arrival of Sarri, deadwood in current roster and so on. Looks like he could be a useful member of Sarri's Chelsea.

Aguero then set up Foden, whose low drive was stopped by the Chelsea keeper, but with 58 minutes gone Aguero put City 2-0 up.

Jorginho reportedly snubbed City to follow his Napoli boss Sarri to Stamford Bridge in a £57 million ($74 million, 64 million euros) deal.

Kante's absence was highlighted time and again as City pinched balls in risky areas and ran at a cumbersome rearguard.

After assisting Aguero for his 200th goal for the club, Foden played another sublime pass for the Argentinee, who could only find the side netting after rounding Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

But Chelsea's threats were fleeting, and City never looked flummoxed, even when Aguero wasted a glorious chance when rounding Caballero to fire into the side-netting in the 50th minute.

Richarlison, a 21-year-old Brazilian, had played only one year in England's top division - he faded badly after Christmas at Watford following a strong first half of the season - when he was signed by Everton last month for a fee that could rise to about $NZ97 million.

Guardiola has been impressed with the shape City's all-time record scorer returned to the club in after the World Cup and believes the Argentinian can hit the ground running when City begin their title defence.
