Training gallery: Etihad trio prepare for Hull

The January Etihad Player of the Month nominees were put through their paces this morning as the champions prepare for the weekend clash with Hull.

Gael Clichy, James Milner and Fernandinho will all compete for their first Etihad award of the season after impressing during January - but who will win the vote?

Ferna was well wrapped up for yet another chilly morning at the CFA - not the sort of afternoon you'd get on Brazil at this time of the year with temperatures back home averaging around 28 degrees!

It was way too cold for this Yorkshire lad who started his work-out in the gym. Fat chance! James wears short-sleeved shirts in blizzard conditions. Must be that Yorkshire grit he has by the bucket-load.

James soon joined his team-mates outside. He's easy to spot as he's the only one in shorts!

James looks like he's stepping out of the picture here, looking at the words below. Either that or he's wondering how he can top his man-of-the-match display at Chelsea last weekend...

On your marks... Gael goes through a sprint session. Dedryck Boyata keeps a close eye...

Fernando and Ferna - our Brazilian holding midfielders are never too far apart.

Ferna spots the camera and puts on a suitably silly face. His left-hand glove is making Kun Aguero's hat have the appearance of a Balotelli chicken hat!

Running man - Gael is always on the move and looking to continue his excellent form into February...

James rounds off the session with a little light passing. You can vote for the Etihad Player of the Month on our official MCFC Facebook page later today...
