City's game with Manchester United was postponed due to Man-United EFL Cup final with Southampton and Pep Guardiola saw the perfect opportunity to take his team away for a warm-weather training
Guardiola put his superstar players through their paces at the Emirates Palace Training Complex on Wednesday
The Emirates Palace Training Complex is set in front of a stunning backdrop of skyscrapers and blue skies.
It is a FIFA standard camp designed for professional football teams seeking warmer climate through harsh winters.

For Manchester City, there is plenty to enjoy without even having to leave the hotel
When asked about the trip, Pep Guardiola had two things he was looking out for.
"We are going there to find some sun because there has been a lot of time in Manchester without seeing the sun," he said.
"And to see our chairman."
