The equations describing planar motion of a homogeneous, incompressible generalized Newtonian fluid are considered. The stress tensor is given constitutively as $\T=\nu(1+\mu|\Du|^2)^{\frac{p-2}2}\Du$, where $\Du$ is the symmetric part of the velocity gradient. The equations are complemented by periodic boundary conditions.
    For the solution semigroup the Lyapunov exponents are computed using a slightly generalized form of the Lieb-Thirring inequality and consequently the fractal dimension of the global attractor is estimated for all $p\in(4/3,2]$.
