The Premier League giants are set for their first match under new coach Maurizio Sarri

-  Newcastle v Chelsea -

The annual curtain-raiser for the Premier League is upon us as FA Cup winners Chelsea and champions Manchester City meet at Wembley in the Community Shield.

It is a contest that seldom reflects how the upcoming season will pan out; you have to go back to 2010 for the last time its victors went onto win the title.

Regardless, the Community Shield takes on an extra edge as this year’s instalment marks the official unveiling of new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

Pep Guardiola versus the former Napoli boss promises to be one of the most compelling duels of the 2018-19 season.

- Newcastle v Chelsea -

Set to be the first football match played at the newly-built Optus Stadium, both sides will be hoping they can christen it with a win.

Three years ago, Chelsea arrived in Australia with Jose Mourinho still at the helm having just guided them to a Premier League title with the Blues dispatching Sydney FC 1-0 courtesy of a Loic Remy goal. 

Fast forward a few years and Maurizio Sarri's rise from rookie coach to Italian mastermind sees him taking over at Chelsea after a mixed season under Conte.

Start Time

Newcastle v Chelsea kicks off at John Smith at 5:30pm BST on Saturday 18 August.

TV and live stream online coverage

The match will be available to watch live on BT Sport 1, with coverage from Wembley beginning at 2pm.

Team News

New coach Popovic has wasted no time since arriving in Western Australia recruiting a whole new back four.

Former Socceroos Matthew Spiranovic and Ivan Franjic will give Glory's fragile defence a timely boost, while Brendon Santalab will be looking to end his career with a few more goals.

Having signed four defenders this off-season, Perth's attacking stocks look comparatively low with Andy Keogh set to carry a lot of the goal-scoring burden.

Star Spanish midfielder Diego Castro has just returned for a rare full pre-season and will likely be used off the bench against Chelsea. 

Potential Glory starting XI: Reddy; Davidson, Marcela, Spiranovic, Franjic; Kilkenny, Chianese, Brimmer, Harold, Italiano; Keogh.

New Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri will bring 25 players with him down to Australia as he comes to grips with the players he has inherited.

The Blues World Cup players including Olivier Giroud, Eden Hazard, and Thibaut Courtois won't be making the trip as they recover from their exploits in Russia.

Sarri's first signing Jorginho will, however, be heading to Perth as he looks to secure his first minutes in a Chelsea shirt after making the move from Napoli. 

Potential Chelsea starting XI: Bulka; Alonso, Kalas, Luiz, Zappacosta; Bakayoko, Jorginho, Fabregas; Abraham, Morata, Pedro.
