Training pictures: Spirits high in camp ahead of Leicester clash

Rémi Garde spoke of a great mood and high spirits in training on the eve of the Leicester game.

But the manager has been in the game long enough to know that his team must continue working hard to achieve success this term as they look to climb away from trouble.

Check out our TRAINING PICTURES.

While delighted with the atmosphere at Bodymoor Heath, Garde worked his players hard as they prepare to face the high-flying Foxes this weekend.

Garde spoke of a good strategy before the Palace encounter and he will have been giving the lads the relevant instructions as they look for another three point haul on Saturday.

As well as the boost in disposition in camp, there was also good news on the injury front.

Gabby Agbonlahor, Jack Grealish and Carlos Sanchez were all back in training, giving the boss more options as he ponders his selection.

Defender Alan Hutton is still out with a hamstring problem while Adama Traore is a long-term absentee with a broken bone in his foot.
