Manchester City clinches Community Shield

Manchester City clinches Community Shield

The current Premier League champions outplayed Chelsea 3-2.

Manchester City started the season with the remarkable victory in the Community Shield claiming the title that eluded the club for four decades. The win against Chelsea also marked the beginning of a new chase of the Premier League title by the Blues.

The capital club dominated in the game in the first 45 minutes, putting the pressure on the City. The total control resulted in an opening goal by Fernando Torres. Yet Chelsea did not have much time to relax as Ivanovic was sent off the pitch after a dangerous tackle. This influenced the game dramatically, the Citizens exploded with rhythm and energy after the break and in 12-minute period City scored three times (goals by Toure, Tevez and Nasri). Despite netting the ball on the 80th minute, Chelsea could not deliver more against the strongest club in England today.
