Video: Man City win Community Shield as Eden Hazard makes ass of himself
Man City have started off this season the same way they finished the last by winning a trophy. They beat Chelsea 3-2 in the Community Shield today.
The European Champions Chelsea led at the break 1-Nil courtesy of Fernando Torres who likewise started the new season as he finished the last, scoring in a final.
He also got a boot from Yaya Toure in the face, welcome to the new season Fernando.
Branislav Ivanovic was sent off just before half-time, prompting people on Twitter to jump in with a new batch of Geoff Shreeves jokes for a new season:
Goals from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri in the second half gave the Premier League champions a commanding lead against the ten men Chelsea but Ryan Bertrand's 80th minute strike meant a nervy last few minutes for the Premier League champions in what is considered by many people as a glorified friendly.
Chelsea’s €41million man Eden Hazard hilariously fell flat on his face, literally, while trying to showboat.
Check it out, it’s probably the highlight of this meaningless match that took place in Villa Park today:
