The Community Shield provided us with a useful barometer of Manchester City’s chances of once again lifting the Premier League title and it also underlined the possibility that Sergio Aguero will be challenging for the Golden Boot in 2018/19 should he continue in a similar manner to that which saw him score twice against the Blues at Wembley. Chelsea had been desperate to provide new boss Maurizio Sarri with his first win in his debut match as manager, however the Blues were completely outclassed from beginning to end and Sarri will be left to ponder just what went wrong.
The Citizens were dominant in possession throughout the ninety minutes and Chelsea were defensively frail at times, this allowing Sergio Aguero to excel as he banged-in a brace and effectively put the game out of reach for the West Londoners. Indeed his performance proved that any fears of fatigue following his World Cup exertions with Argentina are completely unfounded and that he is certainly once again in good goalscoring form ahead of the new Premier League campaign. His brace resulted in a rush of bets on him finishing the season in pole position and Aguero can be backed to finish Premier League top-scorer at 8/1 with BetVictor Bookmakers.
Harry Kane still sits atop the outright market at 3/1 ahead of Mohamed Sarah (5/1) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (6/1) with Romelu Lukaku 9/1 for the 2018/19 Premier League Golden Boot.
