After Fernandez helped Chelsea equalize in the first half, the Blues won 4-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on a wild Monday night.
Cole Palmer scored the penalty that resulted from Cristian Romero’s cut down of the midfield player in the penalty box. Romero received a straight red card following a VAR review of the challenge.
After 58 minutes, Mykhailo Mudryk took Fernandez’s place after he had completed the first half.
His right ankle was twisted in a different incident, according to reports from Argentina, and not Romero’s challenge in the first half caused him to withdraw.
When Chelsea plays champion Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, they’ll be hoping to build on their victory over their rivals in London.
Ole in Argentina claims that Fernandez should be able to start that game despite sustaining a slight sprain in north London.
The former star of Benfica is also anticipated to be named in the Argentina team for their pivotal World Cup qualifying matches against Brazil and Uruguay.
On Tuesday, Fernandez provided an update on his knock, adamant that he is still trying to be ready for Pep Guardiola’s team to visit.
In an Instagram post, he said, “Thanks for all your messages.” “I’m doing well. I’m working on getting better so I can enjoy the weekend.”
With the exception of the 2-0 loss at home to Brentford in October, Fernandez has started every league game under Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure at Chelsea, having signed a record-breaking £106 million contract in January.
Chelsea’s Monday night victory moved them up to 10th place in the Premier League.
