EVAN FERGUSON MAY PLAY against Bournemouth claimed Brighton & Hove Albion manager Roberto de Zerbi.
Ireland's young star had to come off in the FA Cup win over Liverpool last weekend and was spotted on crutches.
The tackle by Fabinho looked like a straight red and many people believed that he was lucky to avoid a dismissal at the time.
Major fears appeared after the game that Ferguson was about to spend a lot of time on the side-lines.

To many it looked like he had suffered an anterior cruciate ligament, but the signs are more positive according to De Zerbi
The 18-year-old will undergo a late fitness test tomorrow
"We will have to see about Evan," De Zerbi said in his press conference on Friday.
"The injury was not so heavy, he might be able to play tomorrow or the next game, but right now it's not so clear."
The news will come as major relief for Stephen Kenny and Ireland ahead of their Euro 2024 game against France.
Brighton play Bournemouth at 15.00.
