  • Manchester City announce new Gabriel Jesus contract with brilliant video

On Sunday, the Chelsea head coach acknowledges he may well receive a more practical illustration of the challenges that lie ahead when his side face Guardiola's Manchester City in the Community Shield.

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

Guardiola said his team wanted to win the Community Shield to get their season off to a flying start but admitted they would not better last season's results in the Premier League. I'll be happy if we arrive at the end being there [in contention] in April and May.

However, Italy worldwide Jorginho followed Maurizio Sarri to Sunday's Community Shield opponents Chelsea, and Guardiola is ready to give a chance to 20-year-old Brazilian Luiz, who joined from Vasco da Gama in a £10 million move last summer. I am going to learn a lot to see him every weekend.

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: "Gabriel is undoubtedly one of the best young forwards in world football, so to have him commit his future to us is a huge boost".

He netted 17 goals as City won the Premier League and the Carabao Cup last term.

City boss Pep Guardiola is ready to tackle one of the most challenging feats in domestic football: defending a Premier League title.

.

Chelsea have lost each of their last two games against Manchester City - they haven't lost three in succession against them since September 2010. Chelsea is always a big rival, with Antonio Conte before and with Maurizio too.

"Yes, we were close, but in the end Jorginho chose to stay with Sarri", Guardiola said. He didn't want to come.

The glorified friendly between the league champions and the FA Cup winners has been a notoriously poor predictor of success in recent years - no victor has gone on to be crowned champions in the same season since Manchester United in 2010-11. "We can not deny there are more contenders - Chelsea, United, Tottenham, they have excellent players and that's why no team has back to back in 10 years". I lived this at Barca and Bayern and we were able to repeat.

"We thought it [Jorginho] was done, but at the last turn, he made a decision to go to Chelsea".

"The way he plays, I think will be flawless for English football".
