Drab modern football was on show at Wembley earlier today as Manchester City strolled to a 2-0 win over Chelsea to win the 2018/19 Community Shield.

On a very hot afternoon, an uninspiring clash saw new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri lose his first competitive match in charge of the team.

Much focus was on Álvaro Morata who has changed his squad number from 9 to 29 in a tribute to his newborn twins following their arrival on July 29th.

With masses of empty seats and less than huge interest online, these were the best jokes from the Community Shield final:

Flamethrowers, selfies, plastic flags, empty seats, and the third-place finishers in The Voice UK final – yes, it’s the #CommunityShield #CHEMCI

GENUINE QUESTION: Is there a creche at the Chelsea Vs Man City men's game today? With so many young fathers heading to Wembley this afternoon, just wondering who's looking after their kids #MensCommunityShield #CommunityShield

Rules of the #CommunityShield ~

It’s a friendly and doesn’t matter. *

*it matters if your team is playing.**

**it doesn’t matter if your team doesn’t win.***

***if you win it, but your team doesn’t win anything else that season – it didn’t matter.

Lose – glorified friendly

Morata would have misssed it

Chelsea need to make 3 signings alone in the half time.

The real comedy is having Morata as main striker.

That 29 out there, in a Chelsea shirt… plays just like that guy who wore the number 9 last season.

Chelsea went from Diego Costa, a man who’s idea of a relaxing night is to watch A Serbian Film & pour triple vodka shots through his eyeballs, to Morata who needs a night light to get to sleep.

So Chelsea fans… who are from London… sold out all there tickets… only to leave 50 mins in

Man City fans… who didn’t sell out every single seat… because they come from Manchester…191 miles away… and every single one stays till the end…to watch them win(again)
