Willian returns to training ahead of Man City clash

Willian returns to training ahead of Man City clash

Jesus is one of a number of players back in the City reckoning after the World Cup, with Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling the only squad members yet to return to the fold. "If he has it, he will stay with us".

Sarri met Pep Guardiola's Manchester City last season in the Champions League group stages. Giving the Spaniard company in attack will be compatriot Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has arguably been the most impressive player for Chelsea in pre-season.

It's the first opportunity to see City's all time most expensive player, Mahrez, play a meaningful game with his new club. "I think we need something, but maybe only a player".

"We will see", Guardiola said of the club's transfer business ahead of Sunday's Community Shield match against FA Cup winners Chelsea.

Jorginho will pull on a Chelsea shirt for the first time in England and he will be hoping to show Pep Guardiola and the City fans exactly what they have missed out on. Antonio was, Maurizio will be too.

However, Italy global Jorginho followed Maurizio Sarri to Sunday's Community Shield opponents Chelsea, and Guardiola is ready to give a chance to 20-year-old Brazilian Luiz, who joined from Vasco da Gama in a £10 million move last summer.

The new Manager clearly wanted a former player to lead the way as he aimed to bring a new style of football to the Bridge and the 26-year-old looks the ideal conductor for the Sarri orchestra. My job is to improve my players.

In its various guises, Chelsea have won just four of their 12 Community Shield games they've played and City's record of four wins from ten is only marginally better.

"In the Champions League it's more unpredictable".

"We can not deny there are more contenders, United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, they have excellent players". We started two and a half weeks ago. "I can say that I am very lucky to be here".

Sarri was less sure about the future of Courtois amid speculation that the goalkeeper wants to leave Chelsea and join Real Madrid.

Other than missing out on the aforementioned Jorginho signature (arguably understandable now given the managerial switch at Stamford Bridge), Manchester City aren't experiencing anywhere near the level of transfer turmoil of their rivals.
