No sooner had Fabio da Silva returned from injury, than the full-back was once again making a beeline to the Middlesbrough treatment room.
Having missed the two previous matches after suffering concussion at Swansea in game week thirty, Fabio was named in the starting XI against Arsenal but his night was practically over before it had even begun. The defender was left with a "sore knee" following a collision with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after just 15 minutes and he was unable to carry on. Steve Agnew revealed post-match that Fabio was being assessed by the club doctor and the extent of his injury was not yet known. If Fabio does miss out this weekend, then the Boro boss may turn to the fit-again George Friend, who recently recovered from a calf problem, while Calum Chambers is also available having missed the last two months because of a stress fracture of the foot.

Steve Agnew has been handed a triple fitness boost with the news that George Friend, Fabio da Silva and Gaston Ramirez are all available to face Arsenal at the Riverside Stadium.

"We have a fully fit squad, everyone is fit and chomping at the bit to play," confirmed the Middlesbrough manager during Saturdays pre-match press conference. "That's great news for me. It means I've got a real selection headache, but that's the way I want it." Friend had been suffering from an ongoing and persistent calf problem which has hampered his progress since January while Ramirez missed the games against Hull and Burnley due to a sprained ankle. Football Association medical guidelines kept Fabio sidelined after he suffered concussion at Swansea, however, the full-back is well placed to earn an instant recall. The only definite absentee on Monday will be Calum Chambers who is ineligible to play against his parent club under the terms of his loan agreement.

Steve Agnew confirmed Fabio suffered concussion against Swansea City at the weekend and will miss the next two matches.

In accordance with FA, UEFA and FIFA guidelines, Fabio is unable to play for a minimum of seven days after the incident, ruling him out of tomorrow's match at Hull City and Saturday's home game against Burnley. The mandated absence of the Brazilian has handed Agnew a selection dilemma ahead of a relegation six-pointer at the KCOM Stadium, considering George Friend and Calum Chambers have only recently returned to light training. This leaves Agnew with the option of deputizing either James Husband, the club's only senior fully-fit left-back, or Stewart Downing for Fabio until he's cleared to return.

Fabio Da Silva and James Husband have returned to training for Middlesbrough while skipper Grant Leadbitter is also progressing well in his bid to return to fitness, according to manager Aitor Karanka.

Fabio, signed from Cardiff City last month, has been sidelined since he sustained a knee injury in his debut at Fulham in the EFL Cup in August. There was also good news provided on fellow defender Husband, who returned to training after rehabbing from a dislocated shoulder, and the club's captain Grant Leadbitter. Karanka said: "Grant is improving a lot, which is good news. It’s all very positive and he could be back sooner than we thought."

Middlesbrough will have to wait up to another month to see summer signing Fabio Da Silva in Premier League action.

Manager Aitor Karanka confirmed that the Brazilian international is expected back within the next month after sustaining a knee injury in the club's League Cup loss to Fulham last month. However, the same cannot be said for veteran defender Grant Leadbitter, who had hernia surgery this summer. Said Karanka"Grant is going well, better than we thought. I hope we can see him - not soon, but before we were expecting. Fabio will be another three or four weeks."

Aitor Karanka was able to provide a positive injury update ahead of game week four even though it wasn’t entirely true.

Speaking as part of Thursdays pre-match media briefing, Karanka revealed: "Everybody is ready to play, apart from James Husband and Grant Leadbitter." However, the Boro boss had overlooked one member of the treatment room, although he might've been forgiven as Fabio da Silva has only just signed for the club. After joining for a fee believed to be in the region of £2m from Cardiff, the former Manchester United full-back enjoyed a brief yet eventful debut in the EFL Cup. Fabio turned goal provider after only 8 minutes at Fulham before a knee injury forced him off just two minutes later. No timeline currently on his return but Boro have been boosted by the news that George Friend is over his recent calf strain. In addition, Marten de Roon and Victor Valdes are also available after shaking off minor niggles.

The 26-year-old left-back has joined Middlesbrough from Cardiff City putting pen to paper on a two-year deal Friday.

The Brazilian is an experienced defender with spells at Manchester United, QPR and Cardiff City accounting for over 100 appearances in English football. This signing boosts coach Aitor Karanka's depth at fullback, but doesn't warrant a signing in fantasy unless George Friend or Emilio Nsue is sidelined due to injury.

Cardiff City are pleased to announce the signing of Brazilian International full-back Fabio da Silva from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

This had initially been muted as a loan, but Fabio has in fact joined Cardiff on a permanent deal. The 23-year-old will be immediately available for selection ahead of Saturday’s Premier League home clash with Norwich and could prove decent value, priced below £7million in the Yahoo game.
