Training: Gym workout after Fulham win

It may have been an exhausting 2-1 win over Fulham but several members of the first team were back at it today.

Players who stayed on the bench like Rico Lewis, Cole Palmer and Sergio Gomez and those who didn’t play the full 90 minutes like Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Ruben Dias were put through their paces this afternoon by the fitness team.

They hit the gym to keep their energy levels up ahead of a busy week of action, which sees us face Chelsea on Wednesday and Brentford on Saturday – both at the Etihad Stadium.

There was also the welcome sight of Kalvin Phillips working out.

Pep Guardiola revealed in his post-match press conference against Fulham that Phillips has returned to full training this past week.

And he hopes to be able to pick the tenacious midfielder in his matchday squad for the visit of the Blues in the Carabao Cup.

All eyes are on that match as we begin our hunt for a trophy we’ve won four times in the last five seasons.
