Lyon forward Nabil Fekir played down injury concerns over him and insists he will be ready for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Manchester City

The France international was forced off at half-time in Lyon’s 1-0 Ligue 1 win over rivals Saint-Etienne on Friday.

It was later announced Fekir sustained an adductor injury, which raised immediate concerns over his availability for Tuesday.

But the 25-year-old insists he will play in their Group F showdown with leaders City.

“Everything is fine, I’m recovering,” said Fekir, according to Fox Sports.

Amazing comeback by Guardiola’s City

The Citizens were able to turn their luck around and after being down 2-1 against Schalke, with one player sent off, they won 3-2 in the UCL.

“We had some trouble in the first half but the most important thing is the victory. I’ll be there on Tuesday.”

Fekir has managed four goals and assists in 10 appearances at Lyon this season after missing out on a summer transfer to Liverpool.

Belgium defender Jason Denayer grabbed the winning goal in the second-half for Lyon.

Bruno Genesio’s side are now second in Ligue 1 and 12 points behind runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
