Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has made the decision to change the location of City's training the day before a home game from the club's Carrington base to the Etihad Stadium, where City play their home fixtures, reports the Guardian.
In an unprecedented move, Pellegrini has made the decision with a view that is believed to make sure that the players are used to familiarity 24 hours before a home game.
It's an interesting move from the Chilean who is obviously looking for all ways possible to reap the benefits and ensure his side are fully prepared mentally before a game.
It is a one-of-a-kind move from Pellegrini as predecessor Roberto Mancini, like all the other Premier League clubs, choose their training base to train on ahead of matches.
City players, coaches and backroom staff alike will begin the new regime this weekend as the Citizens host Premier League new-boys Hull City in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.
