Two goals from Sergio Aguero — his 200th and 201st for the club — proved decisive as Manchester City easily saw off FA Cup winners Chelsea 2-0 to win the Community Shield at Wembley.
Man City took the lead in the 13th minute through a combination of terrific build-up play — a pass from the back by Aymeric Laporte and a driving run from Phil Foden — and incredibly lax Chelsea defending as they simply watched the attack unfold. Aguero was given as much time as he needed to hit low into the bottom corner, his 200th goal for the club.
Guardiola’s side continued to dominate and not long after half-time, Aguero should have doubled the lead, skipping around keeper Willy Cabellero from a terrific Foden pass only to shank his shot wide of a semi-open goal. A few minutes later he did score again, this time played through by Bernardo Silva and easily giving David Luiz the slip before firing low into the net.
