Pablo Zabaleta enjoyed some birthday celebrations both on and off the field on Saturday.
The Argentine defender notched his 200th appearance for Manchester City in their 4-0 mauling of Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
And he marked his 31st birthday by going out to dinner with some of his City team-mates – and Manchester United rival Marcos Rojo.
Fellow Argentinian Rojo has had his season blighted by injury so far and only returned to training earlier this week.
As a result, the defender found himself out of Louis Van Gaal’s squad for United’s must-win trip to Anfield on Sunday.
Rojo took the opportunity to join some of his compatriots for the evening, putting club rivalries aside, and even uploaded a picture of the occasion to his official Instagram page.
A number of City stars were also present at the bash, including Nicolas Otamendi, Sergio Aguero, Willy Caballero, Bruno Zuculini, Martin Demichelis and Bruno Zucilini.
