Gallery: Players head out to Abu Dhabi

Pep Guardiola, his coaching staff and a selection of players not involved in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar have flown out to Abu Dhabi.

Landing earlier today, the players will take part in warm-weather training to gear up for the resumption of the season, which starts for us with a Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool on Thursday 22 December.

Guardiola will put his squad, made up of first-team players and Elite Development starlets, through their paces before they return to Manchester on Sunday 11 December.

The players who have been eliminated at the World Cup group stage will join the squad back in Manchester for preparations ahead of the match with Liverpool and the resumption of our Premier League season at Leeds United on Wednesday 28 December.

We will have full coverage of our training camp throughout the week across mancity.com and our official app.
