Picture special: New recruits meet the fans!

Excitement for the Manchester Derby reached fever pitch on Thursday night...

Fans gathered at the CityStore to meet five of our summer recruits, who snapped photos and signed autographs.

Ellen White, Lee Geum-min, Matilde Fidalgo, Karima Benameur and Tyler Toland were in attendance and also shared their thoughts on Saturday's eagerly-awaited encounter with Q&A sessions on stage.

With City hosting United at the Etihad Stadium in the first Manchester Derby of the professional era, anticipation is building with a record crowd expected to witness history!
