The inner workings of how Manchester City prepare and recover for matchdays has been explored in a new documentary in partnership with Gatorade.

Science of Success provides an in depth look inside the City Football Academy, with insight from the sports science department and how they work with the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI), highlighting how the Club helps the players manage the physical demands of their career.

Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus both reveal their approach to their diet and how it has benefited them on the pitch, while Jill Scott, Georgia Stanway and Caroline Weir explain how they rest and recuperate in between games.

From an outside perspective, recovery can often be overlooked in the beautiful game but, with a busy festive period looming, its importance cannot be emphasised enough.

And this documentary sheds light on that key aspect of professional life, showing what the Premier League champions do away from the pitch to ensure they perform at their peak on it.
