Manchester City`s Fernandinho fit to face Barcelona
Manchester: Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is fit to play in his side`s Champions League last 16 first leg against Barcelona, manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed on Monday.
The Brazil international has missed City`s last three matches due to a muscular problem, but he took part in training on Monday and could now face Barcelona in Tuesday`s game at the Etihad Stadium.
"He has a chance because he`s in the squad list for tomorrow," Pellegrini told a press conference.
"We`ll see tomorrow which 11 we start with, but he`s in the squad list. He worked without any problems."
Striker Sergio Aguero is unlikely to feature, however, having been out since late January with a hamstring problem, while midfielder James Milner is suspended.
