With the scheduled Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday, February 26 postponed due to United’s participation in the EFL Cup final that same day, Pep Guardiola’s men left England on Wednesday, February 22 for Abu Dhabi.

Coach Mikel Arteta led the players to their first training when they arrived.

The players had a light training which included stretching and running at their base before some keep-ball exercises.

City are staying at the Emirates Palace Hotel, where rooms cost close to N245, 000 (£500) a night and facilities include 14 food and beverage outlets, two swimming pools, and a spa that offers massages.
