Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho will undergo a scan on the knee injury he sustained later on Thursday to know the extent of the problem.
Fernandinho suffered a knee injury during the Manchester Derby clash between his Manchester City team and Manchester United.
He was subbed off the game as a result of the knee problem.
Fernandinho was replaced by Leroy Sane who went on to score the second goal as Manchester City beat Manchester United 2-0 away from home to strengthen their bid to retain the Premier League title that they won in record-breaking style in the last campaign.
Manchester City were frustrated in the first half of their game with Manchester United before their quality came through in the second half.
Bernardo Silva showed why he has been nominated for both the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and PFA Players’ Young Player of the Year when he produced a moment of real quality to give Manchester City the lead in the second half before the aforementioned Sane added a second goal off an assist from Raheem Sterling.
The result was more than enough to take Manchester City above title rivals Liverpool at the Premier League summit with three games left to play this term.
