Training: Thrills, skills... and some Pep magic!

City received a twin tonic at training on Tuesday as Ederson and Riyad Mahrez both returned to the fold.

Brazilian keeper Ederson was back in action after recovering from the muscular injury which ruled him out of our last league game, away at Liverpool.

Mahrez, meanwhile, was one of the first of our international contingent to return following his stint on African Cup of Nations qualifying duty with Algeria.
