Man City's Fernandinho wants World Cup place

Fernandinho is hoping to use his form for Manchester City to win a place in the Brazil squad for this summer’s World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

The midfielder has only five caps to his name thus far but with a number of Brazilians due to be involved on Monday evening as City play Chelsea, Fernandinho hopes to catch the eye of Selecao Coach Felipe Scolari.


“Getting to the World Cup is a big dream for me,” Fernandinho said. “It's a big game. You could say it's like a derby because everyone is talking about it.


“I am sure the Brazilian manager will be watching because there are a lot of players he needs to see. If I have a good performance, there is no doubt it will open the door for me. That's what I am hoping.”


Chelsea are likely to bring a quartet of Brazil internationals as part of their squad for the game at the Etihad Stadium - David Luiz, Ramires, Oscar and Willian - while Fernandinho is the only Brazil international in the City side.


City can return to the top of the Premier League table if they beat Jose Mourinho’s Blues after dropping to second with Arsenal’s Sunday win over Crystal Palace.


“If we could beat them it would be a very important result - but both teams will still have a lot of difficult games left,” Fernandinho added. “The Premier League is full of surprise results - but I hope we won't have any more.”


A win for Chelsea would see Mourinho’s team go level on points with City but remain third on goal difference, with the Gunners two points clear.
