Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta is reportedly ready to return from a hamstring problem to compete in this Saturday's Premier League match against West Ham United.
Manchester City full-back Pablo Zabaleta will reportedly return to action this weekend against West Ham United.
The 27-year-old, who missed City's 1-0 win over Swansea City at the weekend, initially picked up the injury on international duty with Argentina.
It is believed that Zabaleta is likely to be available for this Saturday's Premier League encounter but Kolo Toure will be drafted in if necessary, according to the Manchester Evening News.
City will be without full-back Micah Richards, who could be sidelined for up to three months with a knee problem.
