Training: Laporte stunner and penalty practice

The best bits from Thursday’s training at the City Football Academy, including an impressive finish from Aymeric Laporte and some clinical penalty practice.

City return to action on Saturday when we welcome Burnley to the Etihad Stadium for a 15:00pm (UK) kick-off.

Pep Guardiola’s men are aiming to hit the ground running following the international break with top spot in the Premier League - depending on results elsewhere - a potential prize for victory over the Clarets.

We were boosted by the return of Ilkay Gundogan and Oleks Zinchenko to full training at the CFA, and both immediately got back into the swing of things courtesy of some keep-ball drills and rondos.

The session then progressed into a small-sided game, before a selection of players tested their nerve from 12 yards.

Keep your eyes peeled for a particularly impressive strike from Laporte, who finds the top corner with a finish akin to a top-class striker, let alone one of the world's best centre-halves!
