Sergio Aguero's two perfect goals, including his 200th for the club, handed Manchester City a 2-0 win over Chelsea.

The win also claimed the FA Community Shield for the fifth time in Wembley.

Aguero struck his first on 13 minutes after Phil Foden, filling in admirably for Kevin De Bruyne, burst forward to find the Argentine, who wrong-footed Antonio Rudiger with a low shot to become the first City player to reach a double century of goals.

Chelsea, who were playing without Eden Hazard, took 25 minutes to even register a shot and seldom threatened and it was no surprise when Aguero added a second. 

City cut Chelsea apart to become the first Premier League champions to win the trophy since Manchester United in 2013.
