Kolarov is expected to miss at least one month after suffering a calf injury in warmups before last Sunday's Manchester derby, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Gael Clichy replaced Kolarov on Sunday, picking up an assist on Sergio Aguero's match winner, and he figures to maintain his spot in the starting XI for as long as Kolarov is out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kolarov picked up an injury during warmups ahead of Sunday's match against Manchester United and will be replaced by Gael Clichy.

A tough blow for fantasy owners, who likely don't have enough time to get a replacement in. It's unclear what the injury is, with manager Manuel Pellegrini likely to disclose it after the match.

Kolarov took four shots (zero on goal) and picked up a yellow card during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Kolarov, who continues to battle with Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna for playing time, registered his first clean sheet of the season after the win. While he has plenty of fantasy upside when he plays, his inconsistent playing time makes him a rather limited fantasy contributor in most formats.

Kolarov came on for Fernandinho in the 77th minute and then assisted on Martin Demichelis' 83rd-minute goal during Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

Kolarov's corner went right to Demichelis, who headed in the equalizer for City. Kolarov is a very sold fantasy producer when he plays, but his starts are very inconsistent, which makes him an unreliable fantasy play.

Kolarov started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle, registering his first clean sheet of the season, although he did pick up a yellow card.

Kolarov wasn't too active on the attack, but still managed to give fantasy owners a clean sheet in his first start of the season. Manager Manuel Pellegrini moved Kolarov in-and-out of the starting XI last season, but with a strong defensive performance Sunday, he showed why he belongs there more often.

Kolarov signed a three-year contract extension with Manchester City on Thursday, the club's official web site reports.

There was talk that Kolarov was looking to move to Serie A, but his three-year contract keeps him in England on a deep Man City squad. He led all Premier League defenders in assists last season, and if he can garner more consistent playing time, he could be a must-own option next season.

Kolarov picked up an assist in Manchester City's 4-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Kolarov continues to move in-and-out of the City starting XI, which makes him a fairly unreliable fantasy option. He has shown an ability to produce when he plays, including a league-leading seven assists from the defender position, but he just doesn't play enough.

Roma, along with a handful of other teams, has targeted Kolarov, as the defender says he wants to play more frequently, reports the Daily Mail.

Kolarov revealed that he almost left Manchester to return to Italy last season after enduring a lot of time on the bench under manager Roberto Mancini, and now looks even more likely to find an exit this summer.
