Manchester United and Chelsea will both be aiming to strike the first blow of the season as they meet in the Community Shield.

United field a familiar line-up, with new signings Owen Hargreaves and Anderson both missing out.

The Blues are still shaking off their injury problems of last season.

Michael Ballack and Wayne Bridge are definitely out, but Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole could feature.

Midfielder Joe Cole admits Chelsea aren't at full strength.
