Moses in action, Aguero nets twice as Man City outplay Chelsea to win Community Shield



Manchester City win Community Shield

English Premier League champions, Manchester City, have defeated FA Cup winners, Chelsea, to win the Community Shield at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Super Eagles winger, Victor Moses, came in as a 79th-minute substitute in the game that saw his side Chelsea manage just two shots on target – one in the second half and one in the first half.

Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero was the winner of the encounter, as his 13th-minute and 58th-th minute goals helped City win their third trophy in six months.

With his first strike, Aguero became the first player to score 200 times for Manchester City. He has featured 293 times for the Etihad club.

It was a disappointing one for Chelsea, who are barely one month with new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who won last season’s title by 19 points, were without some star players, with Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva all absent.

Below are the last five winners of the Community Shield:

2014: Arsenal
2015: Arsenal
2016: Manchester United
2017: Arsenal
2018: Manchester City

The Premier League will kick off this Friday, when Leicester City pay Manchester United a visit at Old Trafford.
