Man City star to miss Newcastle clash

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed Pablo Zabaleta will miss the clash with Newcastle on Sunday.

The Argentina defender sustained a hamstring strain during the clash with Juventus in the Europa League on Thursday.

Zabaleta was taken off at half-time of the 1-1 draw at Eastlands.

"It is a hamstring," Mancini said. "I do not believe it is serious but he won't play on Sunday."
