  • Pep Guardiola

In each of the past two Community Shield matches, new signings have scored, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting for Manchester United against Leicester City in 2016 and Sead Kolasinac doing likewise for Arsenal previous year.

But whatever the line-ups, there are plenty of talking points and the game will be closely watched for clues as domestic football reclaims centre stage just three weeks after the World Cup final in Russian Federation.

The Wembley clash with last season's runaway Premier League winners will give Sarri a taste of what to expect over the next nine months.

Manchester City have requested a work permit for the Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz after he forced his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.

Most of the players who were on duty at the World Cup have now returned to training but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are still on their post-Russia breaks. "Of course, he needs more time to work but his ideas are already there, so I think it'll be a good game (on Sunday)".

"First of all, I'm looking forward to playing at Wembley, because it's my first time", Sarri said.

Tensions between Assam's indigenous tribes and Bengali-speaking Muslims have led to outbreaks of deadly violence in the past. It was agreed that all foreigners who had entered Assam between 1951 and 1961 would be given full citizenship.

In addition, both sides have shown weakness at the back in their pre-season games so far, with Chelsea keeping just one clean sheet (against Perth Glory) and City without a shutout. Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too. Antonio (Conte) was. I am delighted that players with this style of play will be flawless for English football.

Cesc Fabregas may miss out due to a minor knee problem.

Asked if he expects the 29-year-old to be part of his midfield this season, Sarri said: "Yes I do". Winning was an opportunity to send a signal to the rest of the Premier League.

"I think it's very important to start with a trophy", Sarri added.

Thibaut Courtois is due to return to Chelsea training this weekend after helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup and being voted the best goalkeeper at Russian Federation 2018.

Speaking to the official site, the 21-year-old said: "I would like to thank the fans for the welcome and for how well they have treated me".
