Zabaleta suspended

Pablo Zabaleta will miss City's next two games after picking up his tenth booking of the season last night.

The Argentinean will be suspended for the visit to Burnley and the home date with Birmingham City after he received a yellow card for a foul on Hugo Rodallega in the second half.


Zabaleta has been an almost permanent feature in the side since the arrival of Roberto Mancini, with the Italian hailing his contribution.

Looking at the forthcoming fixtures, timing wise it is probably not a bad thing to get the suspension out of the way (especially given the regularity he collects bookings) ahead of more tougher tests.
