Silva set to make speedy Blues re­turn

Tameside Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
