Training: Final Villa preparations

The best images from a final session ahead of our first home match of 2023 against Aston Villa.

City welcome Aston Villa to the Academy Stadium on Saturday 21 January, with kick-off scheduled for 11:30 (UK).

Gareth Taylor's side are looking to extend our unbeaten run to 13 in all competitions, and maintain our 100% start to 2023 in the process.

And ahead of our latest showdown, the players were put through their paces at a sunny City Football Academy.
