Manchester City took the driving seat on the Premier League table as they displace Liverpool form the top spot after their 2-0 win over their City rivals Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Despite the fact that Cityzens fans should be in a celebratory mood but this joy has been cut short after the news concerning one of their most important players who got injured in the game.
Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is unsure of the severity of his knee injury as he prepares to undergo a scan on Thursday. The midfielder is set to have a scan on the injury he suffered in the derby win over United. The Brazil international, 33, came off in the second half of City’s 2-0 derby win over Manchester United that returned them to the top of the Premier League table.
Already without the injured Kevin De Bruyne, City could now lose Fernandinho with four games remaining in their season. Fernandinho said he would have to wait for the results of a scan to know the severity of the injury scare. The last time the former Shakhtar Donetsk and De Bruyne were missing in Guardiola’s side it was a disastrous period as they felt the presence of both players thus dropping points along the line that throw the title race open.
City are a point clear of Liverpool with three league matches remaining, the first of which is a trip to Burnley on Sunday. After that, they’ll take on Leicester City before finishing up against Brighton to close the season.
In addition, City face an FA Cup final, where they’ll face Watford in the finale. Meanwhile, Liverpool will face Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolves to conclude their Premier League campaign.
