Training: Final preparations for Newcastle

Check out the best of the action from Friday's training session at the City Football Academy...

City are aiming for an eighth successive Premier League victory when we travel to St. James' Park on Sunday 19 December to take on Newcastle United.

And the players were in high spirits ahead of our trip to the north east, taking part in a number of rondo's after stretching out at the beginning of the session.


As always, there were plenty of sharp touches on show, but keep a particular eye out for some impressive ball control from Phil Foden.

The midfielder also managed to get a sneaky nutmeg in on fellow England international John Stones, celebrating with the same enthusiasm he showed when opening the scoring in our 7-0 win over Leeds!
