Training gallery: Samir closes in

Samir Nasri looks ready for a first team return after an energetic training session on Monday morning.

The team, with Samir, set out for the morning session...

The Blues have sorely missed Nasri's creativity in the past few weeks and while the Chelsea game arrived perhaps a couple of days too soon, Nasri will be in contention to play his first game three weeks following a calf injury. Here he takes on Pablo Zabaleta in a small-sided game.

With Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony to come, City should soon be back to full strength as the title race hots up and Barcelona emerge on the horizon.

Fresh from the weekend draw with Chelsea, the squad head out for a gentle jog...

Good to see Eliaquim Mangala back on the training pitch as well after a minor knock kept him out at the weekend.

Frank Lampard on the ball and pushing for a start against the Tigers this weekend.

Lampard watches Stevan Jovetic closely, with Vincent Kompany in close attendance, too.

Frank sets off for a jog...

Eliaquim will be hoping to feature against Hull to erase the memory of his first game against Steve Bruce's side which ended with an own goal and a penalty conceded - though the champions still won 4-2.

The boss keeps an eye on his troops on a chilly Mancunian morning for the Chilean.

We'll have more training galleries in the coming days...
