FULL TIME: CHELSEA 2, MANCHESTER CITY 3
The whistle sounds on an exciting 3-2 win for Manchester City. It's City's first Community/Charity Shield in 40 years, and they deserve it.
Chelsea scored first, and the red card definitely changed the match. But City controlled most of the match and created the better chances.
Chelsea's poor preseason continues, even after all the signings. City head into the season with momentum.
Should be a fascinating season.
James Milner wins another corner for City with a run down the right. He's been lively lately.
Edin Dzeko, who replaced Carlos Tevez moments ago, races free behind the Chelsea defense.
He dawdles too long and allows Chelsea's defenders to catch up.
James Milner works past a few defenders down to the byline on the right side of the box.
He pulls back for Aguero, who's unmarked in the center of the box…
…but Aguero shoots wide! What a miss!
James Milner crosses from the right. David Silva heads the ball on Chelsea's goal, but Petr Cech saves easily.
87'—CHEL 2, MAN C 3
John Terry gives the ball away near the Chelsea box. No problem, though, as the threat ends when Carlos Tevez fouls Frank Lampard.
85'—CHEL 2, MAN C 3
Chelsea attack. Bertrand crosses from the left, but City clear and start a counter.
83'—CHEL 2, MAN C 3
Zabaleta's lofted through-ball is a bit too long for Milner. It goes out for a goal kick.
MORE ON THE GOAL
That's Bertrand's first senior goal for Chelsea. Afterwards he receives a yellow card for some handbags with Pantilimon.
Looks like Pantilimon also received a yellow card.
It's a howler from Costel Pantilimon, who spills a shot and allows Ryan Bertrand to run in and poke home the rebound.
Vincent Kompany sweeps a shot from inside the box after a cross from the right.
Samir Nasri makes way for David Silva. Nasri had a good game today, scoring once and creating lots of danger in the midfield.
Daniel Sturridge replaces Juan Mata.
74'—CHEL 1, MAN C 3
City are in complete control now. They're stroking the ball around the midfield, and Chelsea aren't applying much pressure.
Eden Hazard makes way for Ryan Bertrand.
Hazard didn't have the kind of influence on this game that Chelsea fans might have wanted.
67'—CHEL 1, MAN C 3
John Terry and Ashley Cole argue with the ref about something. Classy bunch, those two.
Then City take another corner. The ball falls to Nasri, who slices a shot high and wide.
Chelsea reeling right now.
Ramires nearly turns the ball into his own net. It's all going wrong for Chelsea.
MORE ON THE GOAL
Kolarov crosses from the left, and it's perfect for Nasri, whose first touch redirects the ball into the net.
It's all City right now, and they can probably name their score.
Samir Nasri makes it three after great work from Kolarov!
Re: Carlos Tevez's goal.

Tevez cuts in from the left, beats David Luiz and curls an unstoppable shot into the top corner at the far post.
Glorious strike, really. City have turned it around on 10-man Chelsea.
Carlos Tevez gives City the lead!
58'—CHEL 1, MAN C 1
Fernando Torres cuts through the midfield and draws a foul in the middle.
Man City's fans howl in protest. Looked like the right call, though.
Torres playing well today. I like what we're seeing from him.
