Manchester City have played down concerns over defender Pablo Zabaleta's foot injury.

The in-form Argentina right-back was hurt in a clash with Brede Hangeland in the second half of City's 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium. He returned to action after leaving the field for treatment but limped off and was substituted a few minutes later.

But first-team coach David Platt does not think Zabaleta's problem is serious and has suggested he could even feature at Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round next week, and he said: "He has gone over on his ankle. We don't have another game for a week. We will have a look in the morning but I would be surprised if he was out for next week."
