The Manchester Evening News report the squad to be in ‘great spirits’ as they got stuck into full contact training. What they mean by ‘full contact’ is tackling rather than martial arts, but the effect of the Manchester City midfield can sometimes seem the same.

Arsenal, for their part, have a few concerns. Lucas Torreira started training outside on Saturday as he recovers from the broken ankle he suffered at Portsmouth on March 2.

Calum Chambers is also still out with his ACL injury with months left before his return.
