That though is all we have time for today at Vavel. I hope you have enjoyed our coverage of the game between Chelsea and Manchester City. I have been Brandon Sayer taking you through the game but until next time, have a good evening.

Chelsea have some work to do between now and their season opener against Huddersfield on Saturday. Sarri will also have a few days now to decide if he wants any new players before the transfer window closes.

From start to finish City were the better team and the scoreline proved it as two goals, one in either half, from Aguero saw City win the 2018 Community Shield.

90+4' - The referee blows his whistle to signal full time. Chelsea 0-2 Manchester City.

90' - The referee has decided to add on four minutes at the end of the second half.

89' - What a chance for Chelsea! Finally Chelsea break the City backline with Barkley in behind, who crossed to Abraham, who saw his shot well-saved by Bravo and Otamendi was their to clear the ball away afterwards.

87' - Manchester City substitution: Laporte is replaced by Nicolas Otamendi.

83' Brahim Diaz is the next to go close to scoring for City as another great passing move ended with the youngster shooting from inside the box but once again Caballero is equal to the shot.

80' - Manchester City substitution: Aguero is replaced by Vincent Kompany.

79' - Chelsea substitution: Pedro is replaced by Victor Moses.

76' - Manchester City substitution: Foden is replaced by Brahim Diaz.

72' - Aguero almost had his third goal goal of the game after a short corner kick was finally whipped into the box by Kyle Walker, who found Aguero but his first time volley was well saved by Caballero.

69' - Chelsea substitution: Morata is replaced by Tammy Abraham.

68' - Manchester City substitution: Mahrez is replaced by Gabriel Jesus.

60' - Double Chelsea substitution: Hudson-Odoi and Fabregas are replaced by Willian and Danny Drinkwater.

58' - Goal for Manchester City! Aguero nets his second goal of the game. This goal came from a counter attack which started with Stones and ended with Bernardo Silva playing a great through ball to Aguero who made no mistake this time aorund by slamming the ball home. Fantastic from City that goal.

50' - What a miss from Aguero! Foden played a fantastic through ball to Aguero, who rounded Caballero, but somehow he put his shot into the side netting when he should have scored. That is a massive let off for Chelsea.

46' - The referee blows his whistle to begin the second half. Game on!

Manchester City substitution at half-time: Sane is replaced by Gundogan.

Well so far so good for Guardiola's men at Wembley as Aguero's 13th minute strike is the difference between the sides at the break. City could and probably should have doubled their lead after that but they didn't and that allowed Chelsea to get back in the game a bit with Hudson-Odoi carrying their biggest threat. What will happen in the second half? Stay tuned as we bring it to you live in a few minutes time!

45+2' - The referee blows his whistle to signal half-time. Chelsea 0-1 Manchester City.

45' - The referee has decided to add on two minutes at the end of the first half.

34' - Finally Chelsea show something going forward as Hudson-Odoi received the ball Barkley and he ran at the City defence which started to open up and he forced Claudio Barvo into a smart save from the edge of the box. Much better from the Blues that.

25' - And now it's time for a water break due to the heat today at Wembley. This is new.

23' - Chelsea are really lucky to only be 1-0 down as a mistake from Jorginho was pounced upon by Foden, who played Sane through on goal but the winger's first touch was far too heavy and that allowed Caballero to come out and gather the ball. So far City look much sharper than Chelsea in all aspects of the game.

13' - Goal for Manchester City! Aguero opens the scoring for the Premier League champions. The goal was created by a great passing move which ended with Foden given the ball to Aguero on the edge of the box with his left foot and he rifled the ball home to score his 200th goal for Manchester City.

3' - It's been a good start to the game so far as the first half chance of the game falls the way of City as Leroy Sane who hit a left footed shot just wide of the goal.

1' - Referee Jon Moss blows his whistle to begin the game. Game on!

Manchester City substitutes: Ederson, Kompany, Gundogan, Otamendi, Jesus, Diaz, Gomes.

Chelsea substitutes: Bulka, Christensen, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Moses, Willian, Abraham.

The all important team news is in from Wembley for this intriguing Community Shield match. Stay tuned as we bring it to you next!

We'll have confirmed team news for you at around 2:00BST but before that, stay with us as our build-up to the game continues.

Predicted Manchester City starting XI: (4-3-3) Bravo; Bolton, Denayer, Laporte, Zinchenko; Foden, Brahim Diaz, Gomes; B.Silva, Nmecha, Sane.

Predicted Chelsea starting XI: (4-3-3) Bulka; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso; Fabregas, Jorginho, Barkley; Pedro, Morata, Hudson-Odoi.

Guardiola will also be without a number of players as Kevin de Bruyne, Kyle Walker, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Benjamin Mendy have yet to return from their holidays after their World Cup commitments. The good news for the City boss though is that Riyad Mahrez, who went off injured in the last game against Bayern, has recovered and is likely to play some part in the game.

Sarri will be without Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Gary Cahill due to the World Cup, while Willian is not likely to feature after he returned home late from training which didn't go down well with the Chelsea boss. Callum Hudson-Odoi is a youngster that has really impressed for Chelsea during pre-season and is likely to get another chance to impress against City on Sunday and will play a part throughout the season.

Both sides come into the game without a few players due to the World Cup but still, both managers still have a number of quality players that they can put out and still win the game.

Pep Guardiola's side also took part in the International Champions Cup but they lost 2 and won 1 of their three games that they played. They began against Borussia Dortmund but they lost the game 1-0, before they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool in their second game. Things got better for the Premier League champions though as they came back from 2-0 down to defeat Bayern Munich 3-2 in their final game of their US Tour.

In terms of result during pre-season, Chelsea have done well as Maurizio Sarri has seen his side defeat Perth Glory 1-0 in Australia, before they defeated Inter Milan 5-4 on penalties in the International Champions Cup after the game finished 1-1 in normal time. Chelsea though did suffer defeat in their last game against Arsenal 7-6 on penalties after the game finished 1-1 in normal time at the Aviva Stadium but overall they have had good runouts which will help them going forward.

Chelsea will be hoping for a better result in this year's Community Shield as they were beaten by Arsenal 4-1 on penalties last season after the game finished 1-1 in normal time. The Blues took the lead in the game through Victor Moses but Sead Kolasinac equalised eight minutes from time. 

The curtain raiser for the new season is here as the Emirates FA Cup winners from last season Chelsea take on Premier League champions Manchester City at Wembley in a game which could lay down a marker for the upcoming season which starts next weekend.

Hello there everyone, and welcome to VAVEL UK's live minute-by-minute commentary of the Community Shield match held at Wembley between Chelsea and Manchester City. Kick-off at Wembley is set for 3:00BST, so stick with us until then as we build up to the game and get the confirmed team news.
