Community Shield - Chelsea v Manchester City Tips

Chelsea entertain Manchester City in the premier league annual curtain raiser this Sunday and the two team's pre-season campaigns have produced contrasting results. It's four wins in their last five for Mancini's Manchester City with four clean sheets and eleven goals in the process while


Di matteo's Chelsea side have lost their last two warm ups. That form goes out the window for the Community Shield and I feel chelsea are overpriced at 12/5 or at a top industry 14/11 with Pinnacle Sports to lift the trophy. I'm expecting a good season from Chelsea with a return to the counter attacking style that saw them record major success under Mourinho. New signings such as Hazard and Marin may feature on Sunday and Torres and Essien will be like new signings. I'm expecting Torres to start as he means to carry on in the Community Shield and 12/5 looks value for the Spaniard to continue his Euro 2012 form and find the net.

Manchester City as ever will be tough to break down and Community Shield games are often tight affairs. I feel their outright price is short but if you do fancy them, 10/3 best price on a 1 goal winning margin looks a top value bet. Yaya Toure is a very big 5/1 with william hill to net for Manchester City and looks worth a small investment.
