Maurizio Sarri reveals who he wants Chelsea to sign this week

Sarri has still not seen six of his players after the World Cup, including unsettled Belgian stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, who are both linked with Real Madrid. "Some players need to be hugged and be close to them for their best performance. I want to congratulate the Chelsea players for they did the same effort like us", the Spaniard reflected after the game. However, on this basis there's a long way to go. It was a management technique that Guardiola was happy to expand upon as he spoke before City's match against Chelsea at Wembley.

Other than missing out on the aforementioned Jorginho signature (arguably understandable now given the managerial switch at Stamford Bridge), Manchester City aren't experiencing anywhere near the level of transfer turmoil of their rivals.

Aguero was not to be denied eight minutes later, though, as he darted behind David Luiz and placed Bernardo Silva's neat pass beyond Caballero to put the result beyond doubt. Those four players pretty much constitute the spine of the side and will make a difference when they return.

But healing the wounds of Conte's fractious two-year reign - which ended with Chelsea 30 points behind City in fifth place - won't be easy for Sarri, as this spluttering performance underlined. He was often in the wrong position and struggled to have any impact against the Premier League champions.

Left foot, right foot, it did not seem to matter for the Argentina ace as he took his tally at the national stadium to five - another City club record - and scooped the man-of-the-match prize. His touch was too strong, though, and Caballero comes off his line to smother.

She said Gates told her in a conference call the income level "was too high" and proposed reclassifying a portion of it as a loan. No. 3 Senate GOP leader John Thune of South Dakota said, "The idea that they should truncate it doesn't make sense to me".

With the likes of Kyle Walker, John Stones and club captain, Vincent Kompany, all featuring heavily in the World Cup and with injuries to Danilo and Benjamin Mendy, we could see a makeshift defence with the likes of Jason Deneyer and maybe even Cameron Humphreys involved. Big, big chance for Aguero!

The French centre back played just 13 times in the latter half of last season following his £57m move from Athletic Bilbao.

But in an intriguing insight into what drives him on, Guardiola, whose team faced FA Cup winners Chelsea in the Community Shield yesterday, has explained how it is the fear of losing, rather than the joy of winning, that motivates him. Aguero again - It's another for Man City and it's another for Aguero! That might have been the hat-trick for Aguero. With an impressive pre-season behind him, Hudson-Odoi's confidence is clearly up and he was not afraid to attack his marker and cut inside to try his luck at goal, doing so twice in the first half.

It looked ominously one-sided from the outset, with Leroy Sane soon threatening before City built from the back to send Foden galloping forward. Bernardo looked to have an open net to aim for, but Rudiger managed to deflect the strike wide.
