Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has been ruled out for a month with a calf injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed.

The Serbia left-back was injured in the warm-up prior to Sunday's derby victory over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

Kolarov is now set to miss Champions League fixtures against CSKA Moscow and Bayern Munich as well as Barclays Premier League games against QPR, Swansea and Southampton this month.

Zabaleta boosted by derby win

Pablo Zabaleta has no doubt City should be regarded as the top club in Manchester following their derby win on Sunday.

After playing second fiddle to United for the majority of Sir Alex Ferguson's reign, City are now enjoying a period of supremacy over their local rivals.

All I can say is that Manchester City's players and the owners are doing a big, big effort to be a top team not just in Manchester but also in the Premier League and also in Europe.

And now probably it's different history than years ago where probably United was the main team in the city.

Now it's a bit different. We are dominating at the moment in the derby games. But that shows how Manchester City are improving year after year.
