“They have come through okay and it’s good to see them get some minutes under their belts. There is nothing like playing.
“With players of this quality coming back to fitness it reinforces the fact that we have strength and depth in the squad."
Sandro and Paulinho both took to their twitter accounts to thank their fans for the support during their recovery time.
