Maurizio Sarri names surprise player as 'very important'

Man City boss Pep Guardiola aims dig at Chelsea new boy Jorginho

Super Eagles winger Victor Moses is on the verge of adding Community Shield title to his collections as Chelsea file out against Manchester City at the wembley Stadium on Sunday.

"We were close but, in the end, Jorginho made a decision to stay with (former Napoli boss) Maurizio", Guardiola said.

The manager has confirmed his record £60 million ($78 million, Sh7.8 billion) signing is in contention to start the match after he was forced off during last weekend's final match of the USA pre-season tour against Bayern Munich.

Recent friendly matches have convinced the 47-year-old his opposite number has already imprinted his style on the Chelsea squad - meaning a match where the post-World Cup line-ups are set to vary in strength may provide more entertainment than anticipated.

Obviously, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne won't feature in this one, but Pep Guardiola will still be able to field a fairly strong team in this one.

The Brazilian has featured 53 times for the Citizens and scored 24 goals in that time, and his effort has not gone unnoticed by Guardiola now that Jesus has penned a two-year extension at City, to keep him there until 2023.

"It is not good for any manager around the world so all the managers try to avoid that feeling when you lose a game".

"At the start of last season, if you compared them player for player, there wasn't much difference in it".

"But Barcelona, for me the best team in the world at playing football, won their first in 1992".

"They're all top quality players, but for whatever reason over the course of the season, Pep managed to get the best out of his players more often than not". Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too. Cesc Fabregas could be the only player to miss out from that side, after he picked up a minor knee injury in the game.

"We asked for a work permit because we believe he can play with us, otherwise we would not ask them". Both managers have the utmost respect for each-other and neither side will be going hell for leather for victory.

"I want to win, because it's very important to have a trophy immediately".

City face Arsenal away on August 12 in a high-profile start to their Premier League title defence while Chelsea have an away trip to Huddersfield the previous day. The Italian did, however, say that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge for long.
