Gabriel Jesus has renewed his contract with Manchester City, extending his stay at the club until 2023. In each of the past four years, the FA Cup holders have won the Community Shield with 2013 the last time a Premier League champion came out on top when Manchester United beat Wigan Athletic.
The Italian took over from compatriot Antonio Conte last month after almost wrestling the Serie A title from Juventus with old club Napoli last season.
Guardiola heads into the game on the back of a fine second season in England, winning the Carabao Cup and breaking records en route to the Premier League title.
Despite that disappointment he is again set to challenge Sergio Aguero for a starting berth in the City line-up as they pursue more silverware following their league and Carabao Cup success in 2017-18.
Manchester City take on Chelsea in Sunday's Community Shield - the traditional curtainraiser to the English season - but the Wembley showpiece will offer few clues as to the destination of the Premier League title.
During the call she says that "This season is going to be incredible because you are the man!"
Under Sarri, Chelsea now look to be a more attacking team in a similar style to the one Guardiola currently uses at City. When asked if Willian would remain at Stamford Bridge, Sarri told Sky Sports: "Yes".
Sarri has only been in his new position since July 14 and will still be fine-tuning his approach and looking at players who could make an impact. He told me in England it is very hard and the level is high.
Chelsea fans have been used to Conte bouncing up and down in his technical area over the past two years, either in delight or despair. But in the end, Jorginho decided [to join Chelsea]. 'It is hard because Manchester City have been working together for two years.
"Also thanks to the Club for being so organised and focused since I arrived". It was a very positive conversation. I think he will stay. "Congratulations to him [for his new contract] and thanks to him for his trust to stay with us for longer".
