Chelsea struggled to create any meaningful chance as Manchester City dominated possession.

Odoi was superb but the other Chelsea players failed to live up to expectations in the first half as City finished the half with a 1-0 lead.

Aguero added his second of the match after Chelsea defenders were caught napping, he unleased a low drive to beat Caballero at the near post.

Chelsea toiled and gave everything but the gulf in class between both teams was evident for all to see as City won the first Silverware of the season.
