Fernandez is back in the squad to face Aston Villa on Saturday after missing Monday's game against Liverpool due to a family matter.

Fernandez will likely slot back into the starting lineup, though the matchup isn't as good as it was a very weeks ago, with Villa scoring six goals in their last two games.

Fernandez (calf) returned to the starting IX against Hull City and was credited with his fourth clean sheet of the season.

Fernandez had been dealing with a calf injury but that seems to no longer be an issue for him. He will likely resume his role in the starting IX when Swansea faces Aston Villa on Friday.

Fernandez (calf) has been able to train, but ultimately was inactive for Sunday's game against Tottenham, the South Wales Evening Post reports.

Considering that Fernandez has been able to train, he'll likely have a late-fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Hull City to determine his availability. If he's unable to play, Kyle Bartley seems like the option to stay in the starting IX.

Fernandez (calf) is expected to miss Swansea's next three Premier League matches, Michelle Fortune of Setanta Sports reports.

Fernandez was forced out of the Arsenal match Sunday with his calf injury and it looks as if he'll need the next four weeks off the pitch to make a full recovery. While the three-game absence is not definite, his current projected time of return is for Dec. 6 against West Ham.

Fernandez won his red card appeal to the Football Association and won't be facing a three-match ban that would have started this Saturday against Everton.

Fernandez was charged with a straight red card during Capital One Cup competition against Liverpool on Tuesday, but that won't affect his availability moving forward with Thursday's appeal victory. The Argentinian has been a staple in the Swans' defense this season and will be able to assume that role when he and his teammates face Everton on Saturday, a team that is scoring 2.11 goals per match.

Fernandez has an opportunity to see more time on the pitch with the recent injury to fellow defensive comrade Jordi Amat (knee), the Daily Mail reports.

With Amat out for the next six weeks, Fernandez will receive a boost in value despite only making one Premier League appearance this season. However, he made the start during Swansea's Capital One Cup qualifying match against Rotherham and was able to record a clean sheet while serving in Amat's place.
