Fellaini ruled out of Reds clash

It's said to be an injury to the medial ligament of Fellaini's left knee.

Despite sitting out of training for much of the week, Fellaini was cleared to play in Saturday's (7 October) penultimate 2018 World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina by manager Roberto Martinez.

Now the Belgium FA have released their updates, and it's relatively good news for Man United.

And on Sunday morning, Belgium's official account tweeted: ' out for a couple weeks and.

But Fellaini was forced off in just the 29th substitute with a knee injury with fears growing it could spark a long-term lay-off for the in-form midfielder.

While no injury setback is welcomed, fears were that Fellaini could be out for months with his knee problem.

With both Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick injured, losing Fellaini for a few weeks would be a huge blow for the team. Get well soon Marouane! The injury has deepened the club's injury concerns ahead of an important encounter against Liverpool in Premier League.

United are now joint top of the Premier League alongside Manchester City and would be looking to get the better of what has been an inconsistent Liverpool team.

United's other matches are the away games at Huddersfield Town in the Premier League and Swansea City in the Caraboa Cup, before the league visit of Tottenham Hotspur and the return match against Benfica. More worryingly for United, the injury comes at a time when European and domestic fixtures are starting to come thick and fast.

United fans will also be sweating over the health of Phil Jones.
