National Team Manager Confirms Marouane Fellaini Has Suffered Knee Ligament Damage

This comes as a blow to Manchester United who are already without Paul Pogba due to injury.

The Belgian global suffered a ligament damage in Belgium's 4-3 win over Bosnia in their 2018 World Cup Qualifying series, he is expected to be out for few weeks and will surely be missed, but we must learn to cope in his absence as we face a demanding October. We are in touch with Man United's medical team.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been struggling in recent weeks and have only won three of their opening seven games to leave them down in seventh place in the Premier League table.

Also arriving were Phil Jones in a silver Bentley, who was not part of Gareth Southgate's latest England squad despite a strong start to the season.

Asked about the 24-year-old, he said: "No idea".

Belgium qualified for the World Cup finals in Russian Federation ahead of this latest pair of qualifying games and Lukaku missed the weekend win over Bosnia with an ankle injury.

"Marouane, it has been confirmed that he has got ligament damage", Martinez told the Daily Star.

The Red Devils won an epic global match 4-3 but having already qualified, Jose Mourinho can say with some accuracy that his player should not have been involved. 'And, no, I have not received a call from Mourinho. He's been working on an individual basis, really good work, but we need to keep that in mind'.

Lukaku picked up an ankle injury in United's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace - though a scan later revealed no significant damage - while Fellaini had recently recovered from an Achilles problem that had forced him to miss the Champions League trip to CSKA Moscow.

A visit to Swansea City in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup follows and the month is rounded off with a home match against Tottenham and the home return with Benfica.

There is an uncertainity surrounding Michael Carrick too which means the club will be with only Ander Hererra and Nemanja Matic in midfield.

Club legend Andrew Cole was also at the training ground on Tuesday, working out in the gym as he builds his strength following the kidney transplant he had earlier this year.
