  1. Thanks for all your comments. Be sure to check the site shortly for the report, quotes and talking points from the game.

  2. Full-time: That's it. Manchester City win the Community Shield. Good effort from 10 men Chelsea but they were overpowered after the break.

  3. 90+3

    Sense City have now realised they were being a little adventurous. Now they are content to keep the ball in the corner.

  4. 90+2

    Pantilimon claims and can break quickly with Cech upfield. Ramires fouls Silva quite deliberately with Cech out of his goal but the referee is generous and doesn't give the Brazilian a second yellow.

  5. 90+2

    Lazy pass from Kolarov and Chelsea have one last chance. They win a corner and Cech is up.

  6. 90+1

    Dzeko clean through but he is so slow there and the Chelsea defence recover.

  7. 90

    There will be four minutes of added time.

  8. 90

    The two men combine again. Milner gets to the byline and cuts it back for Aguero to tap in... but he misses!

  9. 89

    Numbers in this City attack but Aguero ignores better options to spread the ball wide to Milner. Then the cross just eludes Toure and Silva with Luiz able to intercept.

  10. 89

    Dzeko on for Tevez.

  11. 88

    Nice try by Torres to put Ramires through with a lay-off but it slices off his boot and out for a goal-kick.

  12. 87

    Tevez running at defenders in the box but Lampard does well to put himself between the player and the ball, winning a free-kick.

  13. 85

    Cole getting forward and then Bertrand puts the cross in but City clear. Decent pressure from the 10 men.

  14. 84

    It comes to nothing but Chelsea are looking for the equaliser here.

  15. 83

    Now Kolarov concedes a corner at the other end. Chelsea's best chance you'd think.

  16. 83

    Zabaleta tries to find Milner but the hard-working wing-back can't keep that one in despite his best efforts.

  17. 82

    Luiz tries to rob Tevez but commits the foul.

  18. 80

    Pantilimon also booked for his part in that.

  19. 80

    Bertrand then tries to wrestle the ball off Pantilimon to restart the game and is booked.

  20. 79

    Goal! That's one back for Chelsea. Horrible goalkeeping from Pantilimon as he spills a Sturridge shot and Ryan Bertrand is quick off the mark to score from the rebound.
