Manchester City's flight to China cancelled, again 

Manchester City's pre-season preparations have been disrupted once again, after their flight to China was rescheduled for the second successive day. 

The rescheduling has caused a major delay in their preparation plans, as they get ready for the defence of their English Premier League title. 

City were due to leave for Shanghai at 8 pm on Sunday night, after the original flight, which was set for 6.30pm on Saturday night was cancelled. 

The club released a statement after the first rescheduling on Saturday, saying some 'unforeseen administrative issue' were the cause, and it's thought the same issues affected Sunday's planned flight. 

"Due to an unforeseen administrative issue beyond the club’s control, which is being resolved, regrettably, we will embark on our pre-season tour a little later than intended,"  ready part of the statement. 

The club further confirmed that they were to take part in the Premier League Asia Trophy, with their first match against West Ham scheduled for Wednesday. 

The City players trained at the City Football Academy on Sunday, and were on stand by to go to the airport but were allowed to go home after it became clear they could not travel.
