Man City star out for a month

Zabaleta suffered a setback in training and will be out of Manuel Pellegrini’s side for up to a month.

Zabaleta told City’s official website: “It happened in training. It’s the first time in 12 years of senior football that I’ve ever been injured like this so it’s a blow, especially at the start of the season.”

Bacary Sagna is the only option for Manuel Pellegrini at the right-back for the clash with Everton on Sunday.
