City have started up preparations for the weekend clash with Liverpool.

We face the Reds on Saturday, with a 12.30 (UK) kick-off at the Etihad Stadium.

Several of our first team stars have been away on international duty since our last senior game against Burnley in the FA Cup.

But they’ve now started arriving back into Manchester and those who have already returned were out on the fields of the CFA ahead of the Premier League resumption.

Our photographers were on hand to snap away as the lads started to gear up for the match with Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Check out the best pictures in the gallery below.
