Guardiola: I've never met a striker who fights like Gabriel Jesus

The Community Shield can often promise more for a club's season than is ultimately delivered

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hinted that his clubs transfer business this summer may be over.

Guardiola wanted a replacement for Yaya Toure, allowed to leave on a free transfer at the end of last season, with Napoli's Jorginho identified as a top target.

The Premier League champions remain in the market for midfield reinforcement having missed out on the proposed signing of Jorginho, who will instead line up for Chelsea against City in Sunday's Community Shield.

Another London-based manager who expects one of his star players to stay is Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri. For example, two years ago when we switched to three at the back then from the first day we were very good.

"We would like it [if Luis stays]".

"We can try to reduce the gap in the future with work". "We are going to try and convince the federation or the guys who decide the work permit to allow him to stay because I think he has potential to play and improve with us". We saw it against in preseason against Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. It depends on him and us.

The southern African country this week held its first elections since the downfall of longtime leader Robert Mugabe in 2017. If no candidate wins more than half the votes in the presidential election, there will be a runoff in five weeks.

Sarri, who has not won a trophy in his career, said: "The match for us is very hard for one reason: they have worked all together for two years".

"We will see", Guardiola is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

The Community Shield is the traditional curtain-raiser on the English season and, though it is not often held to the highest level of importance, it is something that Guardiola wants to win. He didn't want to come. Maybe it was a bit late to announce that but if you don't want to come, don't come.

But, unlike 2015 and 2017, this time Chelsea go into the match as FA Cup holders and have recent history on their side.

"In terms of results, in the Premier League I can not overcome the results, the numbers of last season, but in the way we play, yes", he said.

Chelsea have lost each of their last two games against Manchester City - they haven't lost three in succession against them since September 2010.
