Silva set to make speedy Blues return
Stuart Brennan worrying injury scare. The Blues’ Spanish midfielder was carried off on a stretcher during Sunday’s 2-0 win over West Ham.
He received around 10 minutes’ treatment from medics on the Etihad pitch before being taken to hospital, sparking fears he had broken his cheekbone and possibly damaged his collarbone.
Silva took a hefty blow to his face in a challenge from the Hammers’ Cheikhou Kouyate but was quickly discharged from hospital and tweeted his thanks for fans’ concern.
He does not have any fracture and he never lost consciousness.
