Marouane Fellaini out for a couple of weeks with a knee injury
The former Everton midfielder is set to miss Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.
Manchester United have been dealt a blow as in-form midfielder Marouane Fellaini picked up a knee injury on international duty with Belgium.
Fellaini, 29, went off after 29 minutes of his side’s 4-3 World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

The Belgian FA tweeted: “Fellaini is out for a couple of weeks. Scan on his knee injury (MCL sprain). Get well soon Marouane!”
The former Everton midfielder will not feature when Belgium face Cyprus in their final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, while United travel to Anfield on 14 October.
Manchester United are already without their record signing Paul Pogba after picking up a hamstring injury against Basel in the Champions League last month and Michael Carrick, who has played just once this season, is also a major doubt for the Liverpool match.
Fellaini has been pivotal to United’s unbeaten start to the season, scoring four goals in all competitions including two in a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace in their last game before the international break.
