Stevan Jovetic, Fernando out for Manchester City against Arsenal
Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic and midfielder Fernando are out for Saturday's game against Arsenal due to injuries, manager Manuel Pellegrini announced Friday.
Jovetic injured his hamstring while training with the Montenegro national team ahead of its Euro 2016 qualifier. Fernando injured himself against Stoke City on Aug. 30 and has since picked up another undisclosed injury in training.
Pellegrini said he's hopeful Jovetic returns next week, while Fernando could be out two weeks.
Jovetic, 24, has been with Manchester City since last season. He has made two appearances this season and scored two goals, both of which came in a 3-1 win over Liverpool on Aug. 25.
Fernando, 27, joined the team this summer from Porto. He's also made two appearances with City this season.
Manchester City has six points through three matches, while Arsenal has five points.
