Lazio will be without in-form midfielder Felipe Anderson for almost a month after the Brazilian sprained his knee during training.

The club says that Felipe Anderson has injured his left knee but that tests carried out later on Thursday rule out ”the presence of associated meniscal tears.”

Lazio adds that the 21-year-old ”will undergo a period of rest and medical care which is currently estimated at around three weeks unless there are complications.”

Felipe Anderson has been in inspirational form of late, with five goals and five assists in as many matches.
