Man City fullback Zabaleta scoffs at Fellaini's elbow explanation

Manchester City fullback Pablo Zabaleta has managed to see the funny side of his clash with Marouane Fellaini during victory at Manchester United.

The United midfielder accused Zabaleta of running into his elbow during the Manchester derby, a version of events which the Argentine has laughed off.

"I was a little bit frustrated when Fellaini just elbowed me," Zabaleta told the Manchester Evening News.

"I heard him say that I ran into his elbow but that's the funniest thing I ever heard in my life. I think he should have been sent off for that, 100 per cent. I know I'm not the tallest player in the league but he left the ball and just tried to elbow me."
