The Blues have seen quite a up and down so far in the pre season games and as they now headed to Wembley Stadium to take on the reigning champions and English Premier League title holder Manchester City. Chelsea would be eying for their first silverware under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri on Sunday. Though the Blues had been very tight in the back in the pre season games but their three match winning streak came to an end when they met Arsenal in the last game.
In the first competitive game of the season, Chelsea would be without their four star players who are still taking some time off after their world cup exit. The absence of Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante, Thibaut Courtois and Willian could prove vital in this game for Sarri but this would mean that he can play a different lineup in the key positions and start testing the depth of the bench for upcoming season.
Manchester City would want to take it up their winning form where they left last season after bagging 100 points in one English Premier League and would want to kick off this season with a trophy. But the absence of star players like Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kevin de Bruyne from the lineup will clearly become a concern when they head out to face Chelsea. After a poor run in the pre season games, they are expected to be back in their regular form once all their players are back.
FA Community Shield, Chelsea FC vs Manchester City is to be played at Wembley Stadium, London at 1930 hours ET. A thrilling game awaits everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
We are backing a Chelsea FC win in this game because they have found their momentum in the pre season games and they would want to continue their form in this game as well since Manchester City will be out of their star players and it would be difficult for Guardiola’s men to breach the tight Chelsea defense at the moment.
