On Sunday 5 August, Chelsea and Manchester City will walk out at Wembley Stadium to compete in the Community Shield.

This match is the traditional curtain-raiser to the Premier League season, although it’s safe to say that many first-team players will be absent given that this game happens fairly soon after the World Cup.

Manchester City will be without Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Vincent Kompany, Kyle Walker and John Stones. Chelsea will be missing Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud, Willian, N’Golo Kante, Gary Cahill and probably Thibaut Courtois.

Therefore, this will be little more than a glorified friendly clash, with Manchester City 21/20 favourites to claim the spoils.

Chelsea are 5/2 to claim the victory and the Blues might well be managed by someone other than Antonio Conte, with Maurizio Sarri the likely successor although no decision has yet been made.

The bookies anticipate both teams scoring in this game with their quotes of 4/6 and we’re happy to back the London team to lift the trophy at 13/10 considering that Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Cesc Fabregas should be among those senior players in the team.

You can take this a step further and back Chelsea to win this clash, with Pep Guardiola caring little about laying down any sort of marker considering half of his first team are on their holidays.
