First Pogba, now Fellaini: Midfielder ruled out for a month

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out of action for a month.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez feared that Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini may have suffered knee ligament damage against Bosnia Herzegovina.

Fellaini was moving with some difficulty before signalling to the bench that he was hurt and laying on the ground with his side 1-0 up in their World Cup qualifier.

And after the game, former Everton boss Martinez said:

“We are all worried about Fellaini. We fear that there’s ligament damage.”

A Belgian FA official also confirmed the injury:

“It is something to be worried about on first sight. Ligaments, left knee. More news tomorrow.”

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.

Fellaini has become a key player for United in recent weeks, particularly in Paul Pogba’s absence, and has scored four goals in his past five appearances for the club.

Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic for Liverpool next Saturday, then?
