Training: Hornets on the horizon

The best images from Friday's session at the City Football Academy...

Manchester City face a difficult away trip at Watford this Saturday in the Premier League, with kick-off at Vicarage Road set for 17:30 (UK).

It's a quick turnaround for Pep Guardiola's men, with the tie coming just three days after a hard-fought 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa.

Nonetheless, the players were in high spirits at the City Football Academy, as we set our sights on claiming a seventh-successive victory in all competitions.

As always, Club photographer Tom Flathers was in place to capture the action.
