Breaking News ! Manchester City had a 20-man outfield squad training ahead of the Premier League trip to Wolves to start the season. In a video posted by the club, Pep Guardiola put his players through their paces with an energetic passing drill, as the two new summer signings took an active part at the City Football Academy. Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake have returned fresh from international duty and could be in line to make their debuts at Wolves on Monday - a fixture that will kick-start three games in seven days. If City progress to the Carabao Cup fourth round, they will play five times in 13 days to start the season. That means Guardiola will need to rely on all of his players to ensure they don't pick up any injuries as a result of the shortened pre-season and lack of match practice since the Champions League tournament in Lisbon just last month.

This is what we spotted from City's training as the build up to the trip to Molineux. New signings sharp Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake already have two games each under their belts this season for their countries, and they looked sharp during passing drills as they spend their first week at City. Torres started the session knocking a ball around with fellow Spaniards Eric Garcia and Adrian Bernabe, before Phil Foden joined them. Ake warmed up with Ilkay Gundogan, before the two new faces were placed in separate groups for a rondo drill, where they were comfortable on the ball and quick with their passing. New signings Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake were involved in training. Five youngsters involved With a hectic schedule to begin the season, Pep Guardiola has once again called up a number of academy players to the first team training group, and they may be called upon for the Carabao Cup clash with Bournemouth. Bernabe, Tommy Doyle and Taylor Harwood-Bellis all have first team appearances to their names, while Felix Nmecha and Cole Palmer will be hoping to build on previous inclusions on the bench in the coming weeks.

The Algerian showed no signs of rustiness as he was one of the more energetic players in the rondo exercise, attempting to win the ball back from his teammates. Aymeric Laporte, who also had to self-isolate after a positive test, is expected back in training this week. Five players missing As well as Laporte, there was no sign of Sergio Aguero, who continues to recover from knee surgery at the beginning of the summer. Some reports had suggested he was in line for a return at Wolves, but he was not spotted on the footage put out by City. Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo, who had both been on international duty with Portugal last week, and Aleks Zinchenko, were also missing from the group shown in the video, which only showed outfield players and not the goalkeeper training. Into the top corner As the group rondos finished and the players walked away, Kevin de Bruyne casually stroked a loose ball into the top corner of one of the goals surrounding the pitch. New season, same Kevin de Bruyne. De Bruyne played in Belgium's second international fixture last week after being granted permission to miss the first game to be with his wife for the birth of their third child. Now back in Manchester, the PFA Player of the Year was at the heart of the session, and finished it with a lovely strike. City training squad: Ake, Otamendi, Stones, Garcia, Harwood-Bellis, Mendy, Walker, Fernandinho, Rodri, Gundogan, Doyle, Foden, De Bruyne, Sterling, Mahrez, Torres, Palmer, Bernabe, Jesus, Nmecha.
