City travel across town on Saturday to face neighbours Manchester United in the first Premier League Manchester Derby of the season.
Heading into the clash on the back of Wednesday night's Champions League triumph over Club Brugge, the squad begin preparations for the eagerly-awaited lunchtime kick-off in fine spirits.
In Thursday's training session, ballwork, target practice and small-sided matches were on the agenda on a cold Manchester day.
As the countdown to kick-off ticks down, preparations and focus intensify.
