Fernandinho has been missing for 4 games for Manchester City due to a red card picked up against Burnley but he will be ready for selection again against West Ham United on Wednesday.

He’s impressed many during his time at Manchester City, however it looks like he’s caught the eye of Kevin De Bruyne.

Speaking to the official Manchester City website, Kevin De Bruyne said:

“Obviously we’ve missed him, he’s been an important player throughout his time at City and he plays a pivotal role for us in midfield and helps keep everything organised plus he’s also very good on the ball.

“Now he’s served his ban and is available for us again so it’s a big boost for the team because he’s missed seven games this season through suspension.

“If you get a red card in England you’re banned for three or sometimes four games which is unbelievable but there’s not much you can do about it. I think one game is enough but those are the rules, I suppose.

“I think Ferna’s one of the best holding midfielders I’ve ever played with and its worth remembering that he’s 30 years-old – incredible that he has so much energy – you don’t see that everywhere in players who are 30 so we are very lucky to have him.”
