Fellaini to miss Liverpool clash after Belgium confirm MCL injury

Manchester United struggling to convince star to stay at Old Trafford

In a post on social media, Belgium said Fellaini has had a scan and will be "out for a couple of weeks".

Although Jose Mourinho will be glad that Fellaini's injury isn't serious, it does leave him short two key midfielders ahead of that huge clash with Jurgen Klopp's side next Saturday.

Manchester United chiefs are convinced Marouane Fellaini will soon agree terms over a new contract.

The full extent of Fellaini's injury won't be clear until he undergoes a scan, but he will play no part in Belgium's final group game on Tuesday against Cyprus.

"We fear that there's ligament damage."

According to the Belgian FA, he will miss at least the next fortnight of United's campaign, reports The Sun. "Ligaments, left knee. More news [on Sunday]".

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.

Fellaini teammate's Romelu Lukaku meanwhile missed the thrilling 4-3 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina with Belgium deciding not to select him from the squad after a recent ankle problem. Four goals from 8 games in all competitions have equaled the number of goals scored by Fellaini last season from 47 parties.

Ander Herrera is now a likely starter at Anfield, with club captain Michael Carrick also an option along with Serbian hardman Nemanja Matic.

Fellaini could also be ruled out of a Champions League away clash at Benfica, before United travel to Huddersfield Town the following Saturday.
