Manchester City's message for rivals is clear: be afraid

Riyad Mahrez

The 18-year-old, who earned a league winner's medal after making five appearances last season, also caught the eye of City's record signing Riyad Mahrez as the champions sauntered to victory and were unlucky not to score more than just Sergio Aguero's brace. "The players are in bad, bad conditions", Guardiola said.

Brazilian-born Italian, Jorginho, a long-time target of Sunday's opponents, has followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea and it may not be long before the pair have Chelsea playing the sort of football that Pep Guardiola was gushing about before City took on Napoli in the Champions League past year. But he arrived so sharp, so good. The various England youth age groups have been tasting plenty of success on the global stage but so far only a handful of those exciting starlets have made the breakthrough in the Premier League. We've seen that before.

In truth Foden and his team mates were helped in their task by Chelsea's defence, which looked all at sea against City's interchanging attackers. Playing in those conditions, with a short time for training. "But I don't know".

With Agüero becoming the first City player to break the 200-goal barrier, Guardiola saluted the club's record scorer for the latest display of his predatory instincts.

We'd be insane not to add another player or two to our ranks this week, and Sarri appears to hold the same belief.

"Phil is part of the first team".

Friends of the stars believe that the only way for her to finally cure is to leave the world of show business forever. Her family made a decision to wait until she was feeling better to bring up rehab.

Winning is still a joy for Guardiola and his players, and despite a lack of fitness and practice time since the World Cup, the way they tore into Chelsea was ominous for their title rivals.

The protracted negotiations to bring Sarri in from Napoli severely restricted his time to start implementing his philosophy on the Blues - he was only appointed three weeks ago. The Italian did, however, say that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge for long. "We need Jorginho more than City, so it's right that Jorginho is here", Sarri said.

"Its been good (our summer preparations), we've had some good games and we've prepared well for the game today and we were ready. Our pre-season until now has been a bit insane". "So we have to work".

Sarri has still not seen six of his players after the World Cup, including unsettled Belgian stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, who are both linked with Real Madrid. It's not very easy. It depends on me, it depends on the players.

This afternoon's fixture lay somewhere in the middle of that spectrum, as both teams wanted to start their campaign with a win in the season's inaugural event, but both coaches were willing to field youth players and offer them a taste of the big occasion.
