Manchester City Women are in form and in high spirits.

Having clinched their fifth consecutive win with a 5-0 demolition of Durham Women on Thursday night, Nick Cushing's side began preparations for Sunday's crucial clash at Arsenal Ladies with a training session at the City Football Academy.

Club photographer Victoria Haydn was on hand to snap it, and here are the best of our exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos...

Don't forget... you can see MCWFC in action at our open training session at the Etihad Stadium on 12 August.

The training session, which doubles as the new stadium’s official test event, is an unmissable evening of fun for the entire family.

Gates open at 5:45pm with face painters, football freestylers and, of course, Club mascots Moonbeam and Moonchester all on hand to provide entertainment for children and adults alike before Manchester City’s two First Team squads - MCFC and MCWFC - take to the pitch from 6:45pm sharp.
