Michu will not play Sunday against Chelsea due to an ankle injury, according to Gareth Vincent of the South Wales Evening Post.

There was no indication leading up to the match that Michu would miss out, so the news was a bit of a surprise. It certainly won't help the Swans against one of the better defensive teams in the Premier League.

Michu played 73 minutes and got an assist in Swansea's 3-0 victory over Norwich on Saturday.

Michu finally returned to the score sheet by recording his second assist of the season. The Spaniard managed to play ten more minutes than his previous match, and if he can build on this performance, he becomes a nice fantasy option in formats where his price is still depressed.

Michu made his return from an ankle injury, coming on in the 63rd minute of Swansea's 1-2 loss to West Brom on Saturday.

Michu has been on the sideline since December and will likely take a few matches to shake off the rust. The Spaniard has had a disappointing season thus far, after a breakout 2012-2013 campaign where he scored 18 goals for The Swans.

Michu (ankle) won't be traveling to Italy with Swansea for their upcoming Europa League match against Napoli, Wales Online reports.

Michu (ankle) has returned to training but won't face Napoli in the Europa League on Thursday, Goal.com reports. However, he could be available for Sunday's trip to Anfield.

Michu has not played since December, after undergoing ankle surgery to fix an issue that has bothered him from the beginning of the Premier League season. A return to training is a plus, and with no midweek action, he could make an impact Sunday against Liverpool.

Michu (ankle) wasn't able to train Monday and is doubtful for Swansea's midweek fixture at Stoke City, the BBC reports.

Michu was hoping to return last weekend for the South Wales Derby and now looks doubtful for Wednesday's clash with Stoke City. If the Spaniard can't make it back for Wednesday, his next Premier League opportunity will be February 23 when The Swans travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool.
