Zabaleta has dealt with a number of injuries this season, which has allowed Bacary Sagna to get significantly more playing time than was predicted at the beginning of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta (knee) is on the bench Saturday against Liverpool.

Zabaleta's injury was expected to keep him out a bit longer, though his return on the bench doesn't lend itself to much fantasy upside. Bacary Sagna will start at rightback Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta (knee) is hoping to be available for the upcoming match against Liverpool on Nov. 21.

Zabaleta's return seems too soon after initial fears of a serious knee injury, however, he's progressing and should be fit for the Liverpool match. He plans to re-join the rest of the team Monday and if everything goes as planned, he'll be available for the next match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta will be sidelined until after the November international break because of his knee injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday.

With Zabaleta sidelined, Bacary Sagna could continue to start at right back opposite Aleksandar Kolarov. Sagna has been a very solid fantasy option this season in place of Zabaleta, who dealt with a separate knee injury earlier, and he's got an excellent matchup against a struggling Norwich side Saturday.

Zabaleta is starting Saturday against West Brom

Zabaleta's season was delayed due to a knee injury, and while he was available off the bench for their Champions League match this week, he'll finally get his starting spot back, moving Bacary Sagna to the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta (knee) is available off the bench Saturday against Spurs.

Zabaleta has yet to play this season due to the ailment, and given the long layoffs, it's unsurprising that he's not starting. Bacary Sagna will continue to start, though it's likely Zabaleta regains the job once he's fully match fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zabaleta (knee) has been deemed fit for Saturday's match against Spurs.

Zabaleta has yet to feature this season due to the ailment, with Bacary Sagna starting in his place. Given the long layoff, it would be a bit surprising if Zabaleta immediately regained his starting spot, particularly with how well City have played defensively this season.
