Training pictures: Players prepare for weekend Man City clash

Our players were on the fields of Bodymoor Heath this week ahead of the Man City clash.

Rémi Garde spoke of "dedication and commitment" within the group as we look to put ourselves back in the survival picture.

Villa are bottom of the Barclays Premier League table - and a clash with City looks daunting on paper.

But Garde stressed in his pre-match press conference that football matches have the ability to throw up surprise results and he hopes this weekend is no exception.

Newspaper reports this morning suggested a split within the playing camp but, again, Garde was on the offensive in his media briefing as he spoke of a "collective energy" to put things right.

There was plenty of effort and endeavour as Garde - along with Eric Black, Reginald Ray and Robert Duverne - worked the lads hard.

On the availability front, there's no change from the injury picture at the Everton game.

Jack Grealish, Libor Kozak and Carlos Sanchez are all still out and won't be available at the Etihad Stadium.
