James Chester: Faces scans on a hamstring injury

The centre-back was hurt in the final minutes of City's 3-2 win at Newcastle on Saturday.

Scans have yet to determine the extent of the problem but manager Steve Bruce is preparing to be without him for a prolonged spell.

"James stretched to make a block in the last minute and his hamstring popped," Bruce told the club's official website.

"It looks like a 'proper' hamstring injury and could be six weeks."

Chester had developed a promising partnership with Curtis Davies this season and signed a new three-year deal at the KC Stadium in June.

stark contrast to Neymar's treatment at Barca his first year. He was brushed off to the flank and told to stay there. I thought it was a bit harsh from Martino to margianalize Neymar like that, but good grief, it's better than woshipping him like his national team does.
