Training pictures: Players prepare for weekend Man City match

Rémi Garde worked with his players hard on the eve of Saturday's Man City FA Cup fourth round game and spoke of the importance of maintaining momentum.

Check out our TRAINING GALLERY.

Following five games unbeaten, he says belief is back - and there is a determination to win the big Cup clash this weekend - and continue their recent good form.

He told the media: "It's a big opportunity for us, we're in a good moment at the moment

"We're going into the game to keep our momentum.

"We know it will be the most difficult game we're going to play since we're unbeaten."

On the injury front, there was news on Gabby Agbonlahor, Carlos Sanchez and Alan Hutton.

Agbonlahor faces a late fitness test after training this week.

Right-back Hutton is likely to be ruled out after failing to recover from the hamstring problem that has plagued him over the last few weeks.

Meanwhile, Carlos Sanchez is also doubtful after missing the derby match at West Brom.
