Felipe Anderson injury concerns

Lazio are increasingly concerned by Felipe Anderson, as it’s not clear when he will fully recover from his knee injury.

The Brazilian missed out on both the Italian Super Cup victory over Juventus and last weekend’s 0-0 Serie A draw with Spal.

He won’t be available tomorrow against Chievo either and medical staff are reticent to give a date for his comeback.

Felipe Anderson is suffering from an inflammation of the tendon and is expected to be out of action for at least a month.

The problem with this type of injury is that there are often relapses and it can be difficult to fully recover.

With Keita Balde Diao frozen out amid a contract dispute, Lazio are short-staffed in attack.
