Angel di Maria will also be hoping to feature for the Red Devils after his appearance as a second-half substitute during the 3-1 win over Aston Villa at Old Trafford last weekend.

Van Gaal’s squad were put through their paces on Friday morning at Carrington as they continue their preparations for the clash with the Citizens at Old Trafford.

Also picture in action was striker Robin van Persie, who returned to training this week after hie lay-off with an ankle injury.

Here are some of the best pictures from Friday morning’s training session at Carrington.
