The influential Portuguese midfielder is suspended after picking up his second yellow card of the competition during the 2-0 last-16 win over Burnley last month, leaving manager Erik ten Hag fairly light in attacking areas.
While Fernandes’ absence could well have handed Donny van de Beek another chance to impress, the club have confirmed the Dutchman is unlikely to feature following his nasty-looking injury sustained in the Premier League win against Bournemouth last week.

New signing Jack Butland may be handed his debut tonight, though defender Axel Tuanzebe remains sidelined.
