Silva will have a scan today, although the sounds are it is nothing to worry about.
The medical staff are expecting it to come back as just bruising, after taking a kick to his lower calf against CSKA.
He did try to run off the pain on the hour mark but Pellegrini was right to take no chances with the weekend in mind.
We would argue Silva is currently operating on a level which even puts his title-winning first-part of the season in the shade.
He has clearly shown how vital it is for him to be completely fit, rested, and free of the niggles which have plagued him for the last year.
Keep your feet up today – you deserve it!
