The pardon of Eden: Hazard wants to delay Chelsea return

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted that his side will be the underdogs when they face Manchester City in English footballs annual curtain raiser the Community Shield tomorrow at Wembley. On Monday, ESPN+ will feature a highlight show recapping Sunday's match.

Luiz was a key figure as Chelsea won the 2016-17 Premier League title in Antonio Conte's first season as head coach.

Chelsea: Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Michy Batshuayi, Ngolo Kante and Olivier Giroud will all miss the match as they are still on holiday after progressing deep into the knockout stages of the World Cup. Both teams have each won the shield four times and the victor on Sunday will become the sixth club to win the competition at least five times.

Most of the players who were on duty at the World Cup have now returned to training but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are still on their post-Russia breaks. While Maurizio Sarri has welcomed back a number of first-team players this week, he is likely to stick with those who have built their fitness over pre-season. City will be eager to kick off the season from where they left the previous one, with an easy win over the rivals.

The former Napoli man is key to Maurizio Sarri's style of play and triggers action in the final third with his impeccable passing accuracy - making him the flawless link man from defence to attack.

Here is the starting XI we think he might choose.
