Fellaini Set To Miss Liverpool Game With Knee Injury

Belgium manager and utter fraud Roberto Martínez did not sound hopeful: "We are all anxious about Fellaini".

Jose Mourinho may not have as big a worry over Marouane Fellaini as he initially feared.

"We fear that there's ligament damage."

This suggested that his injury might have been a serious one.

However, Belgium have since confirmed that Fellaini sprained his MCL, which will rule him out for a "couple of weeks".

Unlike Fellaini, the 27-year-old has fallen out of favour with Mourinho and consequently the Dutch defender is concerned that he's not playing enough football.

The ex-Everton and Standard Liege star has turned opinions on his ability around since Mourinho took up the reins in the north west, and has already notched four goals for his club this term.

Now in his fifth season at Manchester United since signing from Everton, Fellaini has grown into the Red Devils shirt and is increasingly influential.

In these five fixtures mentioned, three of them are away games.

However, it now looks like there is a slight ligament strain but no cruciate damage, meaning Fellaini will be out for several weeks but not months.

Lukaku had missed Belgium's game due to an ankle injury. Fellaini has become a more useful asset going forward after the arrival of defensive midfield enforcer, Nemanja Matic. Manchester United are now placed at second position in the Premier League with six wins and one draw in seven matches.

The only thing that separates both the teams now is the goal difference.

In the game, Fellaini only played for 29 minutes before being pulled out of the field.
