Community Shield 2018. Manchester City vs Chelsea
Manchester City are seemingly in love with Wembley as the Cityzens will face Chelsea in customary beginning to English season of Football.
Both clubs have won the Community Shield four times, with City’s coming in 1937, 1968, 1972, 2012 and Chelsea’s in 1955, 2000, 2005, 2009.
Premier League champions Manchester City will face Emirates FA Cup winners Chelsea in the season’s traditional curtain-raiser at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 5 August.
What will be the outcome of this pre-season match up? Take your pick during regulation time.
Dispel any doubts that fans will take the Community Shield lightly. In fact, this time around, the curtain raiser to the English Premier League will be even more anticipated than usual for the fact that it will be played between two of the most high-spending clubs in English football.
Though we cannot expect full strength squad from either side as star’s players involvement will be hurdled by extended leave due to participation in World Cup.
This traditional curtain raiser to the season is a fantastic showcase for the new talent that has been signed over the summer and with the prospect of a new Chelsea manager and some stars from the World Cup in Russia it promises to be a memorable encounter.
