Guardiola lauds Bernardo Silva's Community Shield 'masterpiece'

May JohnsonAug 07, 2018

The 18-year-old started and impressed during City's 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday afternoon.

Only De Bruyne and Ederson appeared in more Premier League games than Bernardo Silva last season - though 20 of his outings were from the bench - and the champions' manager Guardiola admits the 23-year-old is at the forefront of his mind as he approaches the new campaign.

The Spaniard was delighted with his team's performance in baking conditions that sapped the energy from exhausted legs but still ensured they became the first Premier League champions to win the trophy since Manchester United in 2013.

The five votes against came from Manchester City, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Watford and Swansea.

Phil Foden delivered an accomplished display in the Community Shield.

Claudio Bravo gets the nod in goal, Sergio Aguero a spot up front and Fernandinho will captain the side. "He arrived so sharp, so good", he said.

Sarri's optimism is diluted by the reality that he had not even spoken to key men Courtois, Hazard and Willian until this weekend and with all three keen to leave Chelsea this summer, the next few days may well define the his hopes for the season ahead.

"There is no doubt we have to work hard to improve quickly", states Sarri, who has conducted his press briefings in English so far, despite his limited grasp of the language.

While Guardiola was all smiles, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri admitted the team's hectic pre-season schedule has left his players unable to adapt to his tactics.

There has been little time to work on Sarri's trademark attacking style and, with another friendly against Lyon in midweek, the Italian fears his team will be under-prepared going into their opener at Huddersfield on Saturday.

"We were not in control of the match".

"My method has always been to speak with players face-to-face and then we will see what the best solution if for them and Chelsea. Our pre-season until now has been a bit insane". "It's not very easy".
