Manchester City’s beaten stars returned to training on Tuesday morning as the Football Association launched their investigation into the events which overshadowed the Premier league leaders’ 1-0 defeat at the DW Stadium. 

Striker Aguero, who was involved in an altercation with home fans as they invaded the pitch to celebrate, with one appearing to try to punch him, had a meeting with senior City staff on Tuesday before taking part in a light session with his team-mates.

City sources believe the stewarding for a game of that magnitude was inadequate and footage been sent to the Etihad Stadium of the invasion shows supporters given free rein to approach the away end and weren’t effectively moved on.

Meanwhile, many of the players who did start the match arrived at the City base on Tuesday, with Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne arriving together, while goalkeeper Ederson arrived bright and early too.

Bernardo Silva arrived too, as did goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who had been beaten by Will Grigg’s 79th minute strike.

Fabian Delph was not to be seen either after his first-half red card, which had sparked a clash between managers Pep Guardiola and Paul Cook in the DW Stadium tunnel.
