The images showed several members of Pep Guardiola’s squad, including Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho, undergoing performance testing.
The players were being given close attention by multiple members of the club’s backroom team in preparation for Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Brighton at the Etihad Stadium.
Having returned to winning ways at Bournemouth last Sunday following the previous week’s draw against Tottenham, the current champions go into this weekend’s game two points adrift of leaders Liverpool, whom they pipped to the title by a solitary point in a frenetic race to the finish line last season.
These Manchester City fans took to Twitter to give their own humorous responses to the performance testing images posted on the club’s social media:
Damn, they’re gonna see Bernardo isn’t human

We need to see @BernardoCSilva results to verify the planet he’s from.

They're laughing because they found that Kev being so good is just natural
