Inside City: Derby delight, family fun day and fireworks!

Another busy week has been and gone at Manchester City…

In Episode 386 of Inside City:

Players and staff enjoyed a well-earned rest on Halloween, enjoying a family fun day organised at the City Football Academy.

There were plenty of attractions on offer, including a bouncy castle and mini trampolines, while Phil Foden’s son, Ronnie, made friends with City mascots Moonchester and Moonbeam.


Foden jnr. also showed off the kind of footwork City fans have become accustomed to from his dad – putting the ball in the back of the net before knee-sliding in celebration!

And even when taking some time away from the pitch, the players still had a ball glued to their feet, with Oleks Zinchenko in particular showing off some impressive skills.

A crucial Champions League clash followed on Wednesday, as City ran out 4-1 winners at the Etihad Stadium against Club Brugge.

Goals from Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus helped Pep Guardiola’s men to an impressive victory which sent us top of Group A.

Attentions were then switched towards the small matter of the first Manchester Derby of the season, with the City boss conducting his pre-match press conference on Friday before one final session at the CFA.

While training hit a typically high intensity ahead of our trip to face Manchester United, the players were in high spirits during some shooting drills against the backdrop of some bonfire night fireworks across Manchester.


And the smiles continued at Old Trafford thanks to a dominant 2-0 victory over our local rivals.

Keep an eye out for some incredible footage of City’s opening goal, as well as Pep’s celebrations from the dug out when Bernardo doubled our advantage!
