Sergio Aguero scored both Manchester City’s goals as the Premier League champions beat Chelsea 2-0 to win the Community Shield on a sweltering day at Wembley.
Aguero's first ‑ his 200th goal for the club ‑ came after 13 minutes, when he collected the ball on the edge of the area after Phil Foden surged forward, and fired into the bottom corner.
His second came after the break, when he latched on to Bernardo Silva's pass and beat Willy Caballero with another precise low finish.
Players were allowed water breaks during the game and some City players sitting on the bench had wet towels over their heads to try to protect them from the intensity of the sunshine.
City, who won last year's title by 19 points, were also without some of their stars ‑ with Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva all absent.
But they produced a controlled and efficient performance to secure their third piece of silverware in the past six months.
