Fernandinho in a race to be fit for Barcelona clash
The Brazilian is expected to be sidelined for a fortnight with an injury suffered prior to Monday’s match against Chelsea.
The summer-signing missed the defeat to Chelsea with a thigh problem, and there had been reports suggesting that he would be out for up to a month with the injury.
However, there is a chance that Fernandinho could return for the first-leg of the Champions League last 16 clash against Barcelona on February 18, with rumours of a four-week lay-off being quashed by the player himself on Twitter.
“Good afternoon, I would like to tell you about my injury and quell rumors. I return to play in 15 days or less!”
