MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Manchester City’s Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho will have a scan on a knee injury he suffered against Manchester United on Wednesday ahead of the final three games of the Premier League season.
The defensive midfielder limped off in the 51st minute of the 2-0 win against United at Old Trafford and could be a doubt for Sunday’s game at Burnley.
“We will see tomorrow. We are going to make the scan and we will see. I will talk to the doctor and he will make the best decision for everybody,” Fernandinho said.
“When I blocked the shot from Paul (Pogba) I felt my knee. It twisted a little bit. I could continue playing but I came off. That’s what it is,” he said.
City already have key midfielder Kevin De Bruyne sidelined with a hamstring injury he picked up in Saturday’s win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Pep Guardiola’s side are a point clear of Liverpool at the top of the table, with three games remaining.
