Sergio Aguero, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva take part in Manchester City training ahead of Hoffenheim match - in pictures

The Premier League leaders got their Group F campaign off to a poor start, losing 2-1 at home to French side Lyon two weeks ago

Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling were among the Manchester City players being put through their paces on Monday as Pep Guardiola's side prepared for their Uefa Champions League match against Hoffenheim.

Guardiola admitted after Saturday's 2- 0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion that Aguero, who opened the scoring before being substituted, was nursing a heel injury that required careful management, although the Argentina striker showed no signs of discomfort at the City Football Academy.

Young midfielder Phil Foden, who starred as City progressed to the fourth round of the League Cup with a 3-0 victory over Oxford United on Wednesday, also trained and will travel with the squad to Germany to take on Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

The Premier League leaders got their Group F campaign off to a poor start, losing 2-1 at home to French side Lyon two weeks ago, while Hoffenheim drew 2-2 with Shakhtar Donetsk.
