Picture special: Preparing for Juve

Picture special: Preparing for Juve
As the dust settles on City's last-gasp win at Crystal Palace, attentions turn to Tuesday night's mouth-watering Champions League clash with Juventus.

The Blues were back in training this morning at the City Football Academy and as always, our roving Club photographer Sharon Latham was on hand to snap the session.

As we declared in our training report, David Silva and Raheem Sterling took part, while Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho and Samir Nasri were absent. 

There will be a press conference at 1pm where Manuel Pellegrini will share the latest team news.

On the back of their incredible run, the league leaders were in good spirits ahead of the visit of the Old Lady. Here are the best of the photos...
