FOOTBALL : Man City beat Chelsea 3-2 to lift Community Shield
Three goals in 12 minutes early in the second half from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri ensured the Premier League champions came from a goal down to lead 3-1 and eventually win the season's traditional curtain-raiser in a quality game.
Fernando Torres had given Chelsea the lead shortly before half-time only for Roberto Di Matteo's side to lose the initiative when Branislav Ivanovic was sent off for a rash tackle on Aleksandar Kolarov moments later.
Ryan Bertand gave Chelsea hope with 10 minutes remaining but City clung on to lift their second trophy of 2012.
COMMUNITY SHIELD FINAL SCORE :
Chelsea 2 (Torres 40, Bertrand 80)
Man City 3 (Toure Yaya 53, Tevez 59, Nasri 65)
