first_img Pablo Zabaleta 1 Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed Pablo Zabaleta will be out for a month with a knee injury.The full-back only reported for pre-season training in late July after playing in the Copa America with Argentina and has yet to feature this term.Bacary Sagna has taken his place for the wins over West Brom and Chelsea, and the former Arsenal man is now set for an extended run in the team after Zabaleta picked up a knee injury.The 30-year-old suffered ligament damage during a training session and is expected to be sidelined until the end of September.“Pablo Zabaleta yesterday had a problem in his knee with his ligaments so he will be out for around one month,” said Pellegrini.There is some good news for City, however, with Fabian Delph back fit.The summer signing from Aston Villa suffered a hamstring injury in his first outing for the club in pre-season but returned to training this week.He is unlikely to start against Everton on Sunday but could be named on the bench by Pellegrini for the Goodison Park clash.last_img read more
