Fernandinho ruled out of Manchester City’s Arsenal clash

City’s midfielder Fernandinho will not be risked when Arsenal host Manchester City on Thursday at Emirates stadium.

Fernandinho was substituted after suffering a muscle strain in City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal at Wembley. He was substituted by Bernardo Silva in the second half at Wembley.

As per the Manchester City statement, they are uncertain how long Fernandinho will be out of action.


Manchester City said in a statement, “The Brazilian was withdrawn after 52 minutes of City’s Wembley win, but thankfully the initial prognosis suggests the problem isn’t serious.

“No timescale has yet been set for his return but the Premier League game against the Gunners on Thursday will come too soon.

“He has played in every league game this season, scoring three goals, with Pep Guardiola describing as one of the best defensive-midfielders in world football.

“Everyone at the Club wishes him a speedy recovery.”
