Training: Kennedy's double nutmeg as Cup preparations continue

The best of the action from City's latest training session ahead of our return to Continental Cup action.

Gareth Taylor's side welcome Sunderland to the Academy Stadium on Sunday 27 November, with kick-off scheduled for 14:00 (UK).

City are aiming to maintain our winning start to life in Group B, having beaten Blackburn 6-0 in our opening fixture.

That triumph forms part of a six-match sequence of victories which we are currently enjoying, with our latest three points coming in a hard-fought 2-1 win over Everton.

City had to dig deep to get over the line on Merseyside, and the players showed similar levels of effort during our latest session at the City Football Academy.

But there was plenty of style to match the substance - keep an eye out for some impressive juggling skills from Deyna Castellanos while the Venezuelan is sat on a ball.

The fancy footwork continued in some rondos, with Alanna Kennedy claiming two nutmegs in quick succession, before the players took part in some strength and conditioning exercises in the gym.

CITY V UNITED: ETIHAD DERBY

City welcome Manchester United to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 11 December.

Kick-off is scheduled for 12:30 (UK), with tickets selling fast for our third-ever women's match at the Etihad.

We hosted Everton there back in May 2014, before welcoming our local rivals in September 2019, when Caroline Weir’s wonder strike saw us run out 1-0 winners in front of what was then a WSL record crowd, and what remains a club record of 31, 213 fans.

With over 30,000 tickets already sold, it promises to be another historic occasion.
