Our travelling party swelled on day five on the Gold Coast...
Jason Denayer, Edin Dzeko, Joe Hart, Stevan Jovetic, Aleksandar Kolarov, Rony Lopes, Eliaquim Mangala, Bacary Sagna and David Silva all arrived in Australia on Tuesday night and were straight out onto the training pitch on Wednesday morning.
Here are the best of the pics from a lighthearted but tough session at the team’s training base in Benowa.
Eliaquim, Bacary, Rony, Jason and Joe hit the exercise bikes to warm up.
Is Rony out to challenge Sergio's monopoly on pulling funny faces for the camera?
This won't be Denayer's last pedal of the morning...
The scene as the players emerge from the gym.
El Mago can even raise a smile on the morning after he got off a 21 hour flight to Australia.
The session gets under way with a couple of laps of the pitch.
... and stretch...
Lopes gets back on the ball after his summer break.
Joe goes in the middle for a keep-ball exercise.
Told you it wasn't Jason's last bike ride - he and David go for a spin around the hotel grounds.
Not to be outdone, Joe wants a go on the bikes!
