Footballers love to nutmeg their teammates in training, and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling was the latest to suffer the ignominy when a teammate managed to put the ball through his legs in a piggy-in-the-middle exercise drill.
The players are preparing for a huge game against Chelsea this evening, but everyone looked to be in a very relaxed mood ahead of the clash at the Etihad:
Doesn’t count after the whistle, right @sterling7 👀

Sterling has had a difficult couple of weeks following the incident with Joe Gomez on international duty, but he has kept his head down and got on with his football.
The 24-year-old will no doubt play a prominent role when Pep Guardiola’s side go up against the Blues in the late kickoff. His form has been superb, having hit 14 goals in 17 games so far this campaign.
However, Sterling has scored just once in his last five league matches and he will be hoping to get back on the scoresheet to help City get the three points today.
