Pep Guardiola sends message to new Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri

Pep Guardiola and Maurizio Sarri

It was Guardiola left paying the price when Sarri's arrival at Stamford Bridge proved a factor in Italy worldwide Jorginho choosing to join Chelsea, despite City's own lengthy pursuit of the holding midfielder.

Azpilicueta knows the overflowing quality of Pep Guardiola's title-winning squad but the 28-year-old insists they will go all guns blazing and implement Sarri's high-energy and aggressive attacking football despite its relative infancy within the Blues squad.

Chelsea face Manchester City in the Community Shield tomorrow at Wembley Stadium. "From my point of view, the players don't have to be anxious". I have never met one striker who fights like he fights.

"The fear of losing games makes me starving and hungry again". I don't like the feeling to lose games.

Guardiola said the Premier League remained his main aim, despite City's owners making clear their desire to win the Champions League, as he looks to become the first manager since Sir Alex Ferguson in 2008 to lift back-to-back titles.

He is in line to start for Chelsea in the Community Shield. "Nobody put a gun to his head and said, 'You have to'". Every person is completely different.

Do you agree with our manager, Blues?

Carr Fire: What we know Thursday
After 20 days of destruction, the Ferguson Fire in central California was only 39% contained as of Wednesday. And California has already spent a quarter of its firefighting budget for the year in the month of July.

It's about maintaining focus and the dressing-room winding each other up, so it's not only the manager driving it forward, but also the big personalities reminding the others that they can't take anything for granted against anybody. But he did not specify who that player would be.

Hazard, who has two years left on his current deal, has reportedly been offered an extension at Stamford Bridge.

"No, it won't", said Guardiola. We want him. Txiki (Begiristain, City's director of football) spoke with him so. He knows that, his agent knows that. I'll be happy if we arrive at the end being there [in contention] in April and May.

He cleared the air when asked about his future though, stating that he rejoined Chelsea with the goal of staying and winning trophies with the club.

And Lescott says Guardiola will never copy Mourinho's approach, claiming the City boss only knows how to play his way.

"It is disappointing but it was two months ago and life is like this. If he is able to overcome that situation, he will be a better player".
