Manchester City players get festive in fancy dress for Christmas party

Manchester City's season has been marked by infighting but at least they haven't forgotten how to party.

The club's players headed off for their Christmas bash in fancy dress on Saturday night, after their victory against Bolton at Eastlands.

Sean Wright Phillips, Adam Johnson, Gareth Barry, Vincent Kompany, Nigel De Jong, Joleon Lescott, Yaya Toure and Joe Hart were spotted heading to Hale nightclub in Cheshire looking very festive indeed, but not so stylish.

The players opted for bright outfits, adorned with spots to mark the festive season, as Johnson chose bright red, Wright-Phillips in yellow, Barry in purple and Hart in yellow and orange.

They might not have looked as fashionable as other football style icons such as David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, but they still managed to add some glamour to Cheshire.

Team-mates James Milner and Patrick Vieira joined in on the colourful display in yellow and pink trousers, but decided against accessorising  with spots and Vieira even tried to hide under a hooded coat.

The Man City festive spirit is still not evident on the pitch, however.

The latest spat involved goalscorer Carlos Tevez, who reacted angrily to being substituted by Roberto Mancini.

This followed hard on the heels of Mario Balotelli and Jerome Boateng squaring up to each other in training on Friday.

And there have been similar spats involving James Milner and Yaya Toure, and Emmanuel Adebayor and Vincent Kompany.

One hopes they drank in moderation at the party.
