Kolarov scored off a free kick in the 32nd minute and finished with two shots on goal and four crosses during Manchester City's 6-0 rout of QPR on Sunday.

Kolarov has been an excellent fantasy producer of late, posting two goals, one assist and two clean sheets in his last three matches. He lost plenty of playing time throughout the season with Gael Clichy starting ahead of him, but those days seem to be over.

Kolarov had a goal and an assist during Manchester City's 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Kolarov has finally seemed to lock in a place in the starting lineup thanks to Gael Clichy's muscular injury that is holding him out. The goal was Kolarov's first of the season in Premier League play, while the assist was his third (and first in 2015).

Kolarov, who is currently dealing with a leg injury, said he would like to return to Italy, according to the Daily Mail.

Inter Milan appear to be interested in the defender who just signed a new contract with Manchester City last summer. Kolarov has made 101 appearances in the Premier League with Manchester City.

Kolarov (leg) is out for Saturday's match against West Brom.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said during his Friday press conference that he didn't expect Kolarov to be fit for the match, which turned out to be the case. His next opportunity to play will come April 6 against Crystal Palace.

Kolarov is highly doubtful to play Saturday against West Brom because of a muscle injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday. "Kolarov has a muscle problem and (James) Milner has played with a problem in his knee for the last month, so I don't htink they will make it," Pellegrini said.

Kolarov had been getting more playing time of late, something that was his biggest hindrance in fantasy circles. Gael Clichy is likely to start in his place.

Kolarov, starting for the first time since Nov. 2, picked up an assist on one of David Silva's goals during Manchester City's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Kolarov missed significant time with a calf injury, but got the start Saturday in place of Gael Clichy, who has also been playing well recently. Kolarov is a solid fantasy contributor when he plays, but he doesn't get nearly enough consistent playing time to rely on in many season-long formats.
