Chappy takes us back to 2010 with tales of Manchester City's pre-season tour of America that involved an X Factor night!

City have arrived in the USA to take part in the 2017 International Champions Cup, presented by Heineken. 

The Blues will take on Manchester United in one of three fixtures scheduled - and that game will be the first time in history the sides have met overseas.

The match will take place at the NRG Stadium this Thursday, 20 July with City also set to face Tottenham and Real Madrid in this, the fifth International Champions Cup.

City will take on Tottenham at Nashville's Nissan Stadium and Real Madrid in Los Angeles as Pep Guardiola fine tunes his squad ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

In advance of the tour, we spoke to Chappy to get stories from pre-seasons past. This one is from 2010 and involves X Factor!
