Behind the Scenes

Zinchenko back in training!

Manchester City have been bolstered by the return of Oleksandr Zinchenko, who joined his team-mates in training the day after the 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.

The Ukrainian defender has been out since the end of October after having surgery on a knee problem, but was back out on the training pitch at the City Football Academy as he stepped up his recovery.

Pep Guardiola put his players through a series of physical workouts before a rondo and a larger possession-based game as preparations begin for Tuesday’s trip to Burnley.

Zinchenko, who missed City’s last 10 games, joined in each of the drills and was in good spirits on his return.
