Injury blow for Lescott

England defender Joleon Lescott has suffered a hamstring injury and will have a scan to determine the extent of the problem, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed.
Lescott picked up the problem during the warm-up of the 2-1 Barclays Premier League win at Fulham and is the latest player to give Fabio Capello a fitness scare. David Beckham is out of the World Cup with a ruptured Achilles, Ashley Cole has a serious ankle injury, Aaron Lennon has a groin problem and last week Jermain Defoe tore his hamstring.
"Joleon had a problem before the game in the warm-up, a muscle," said Mancini.
"I think he can't play against Everton. At the moment I don't know how long he'll be out. He'll have a scan."
