Pablo Zabaleta says he will be happy to play in any position he is asked to by manager Roberto Mancini.
The versatile Argentine considers himself a natural right-back, but has been asked to fill in as a central midfielder in recent weeks.
And Zabaleta, who was selected for the role ahead of players such as Stephen Ireland, insists he is happy to move out of the back four if it is in the best interests of the team.
"Sometimes we have had too many problems with injuries, so sometimes I have played in different roles," the 25-year-old said.
"I try to do my best for the team. My best position is right-back but I will play anywhere."
City will look to maintain their challenge for a place in next season's UEFA Champions League when they face Fulham on Sunday.
Roy Hodgson's side are coming off the back of a memorable Europa League victory over Italian giants Juventus and Zabaleta is wary of the threat they pose.
However, he still believes that they have an excellent chance to gain three valuable points when they travel to Craven Cottage.
Zabaleta added: "We are solid at home but we need to pick up points on the road and this game is a great one for us.
"This is a big time in the race and if we want to get into the top four we need to win on Sunday.
"We know it will be difficult as Fulham showed against Juventus they have the quality to beat any team. But if we show the same attitude as we did at Chelsea we have a big chance."
