Swansea still have it all to do and Carlos Carvalhal will be hoping for some positive news from the treatment room after Frederico Fernandez was forced off against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
The Swans sit just four-points above the drop zone with four games remaining and will be counting on their influential skipper for the run-in: "We don't know in this moment [exactly how severe the injury is], but I have expectations that it is not too serious," said Carvalhal on Saturday. These sentiments were backed by the player 24 hours later following an update via the club’s website: "I am fine. I got hit painfully on the knee and I had to come off," Fernandez said. "It doesn’t look so bad. Hopefully it will mean a couple of days recovery and I will be ready for next weekend. I need to discuss it with the doctor. It seems to be in the tendons, but I hope I will be available against Chelsea." Kyle Bartley is likely to deputise should he fail to recover. Apr 24 - 2:11 PM
