Manchester City: Fans react as Liam Delap trains with first team ahead of Brugge trip -Manchester City

A number of Manchester City fans reacted excitedly to the news that Liam Delap was involved in first team training ahead of their Champions League tie this week.

The 18-year-old has only made three senior appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side, all of which came last season, but he has been amongst the goals at Premier League 2 level in recent weeks. He also offers City a natural centre-forward option, something they didn’t have in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Burnley as Phil Foden started up top with Gabriel Jesus unable to return to England in time for the clash due to travel restrictions.

Manchester City posted images from their training ground this morning on their official website which showed Delap, who was recently laid low with injury, among the first team ahead of the Brugge game, while renowned Twitter channel @City_Xtra also claimed that the teenager appeared to have been involved with preparations for the Champions League clash.
