Fernandinho, who picked up his second assist of the season in Manchester City's 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday, is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich after picking up two yellow cards in their last UCL match.

Fernandinho primarily plays as a holding midfielder, but he had an excellent flick to Yaya Toure, who finished it off for the match-winner in the 62nd minute. He'll continue to battle for playing time with Fernando, though Fernandinho appears to be the driver's seat right now, at least when he's eligible to play.

Fernandinho recorded an assist during Wednesday's 5-1 win over Tottenham.

Fernandinho now has three goals and three assists in Premier League play this season. He continues to be a fixture in the starting XI, but his fantasy upside is dwarfed by those of Yaya Toure, David Silva, Jesus Navas and Samir Nasri (when healthy).
