Marouane Fellaini to miss Liverpool clash due to injury

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

The Red Devils head into the game looking to continue their fine start to the new Premier League season, with Jose Mourinho's men now second in the table and level on points with leaders Manchester City. We are in touch with Man United's medical team.

Fellaini has been in excellent form for United in the early part of the season and scored twice in their last outing, a 4-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

Belgium have already qualified for Russian Federation after finishing top of Group H and Martinez may not even play Lukaku against Cyprus, a game of little importance.

United's other matches are the away games at Huddersfield Town in the Premier League and Swansea City in the Carabao Cup, before the league visit of Tottenham Hotspur and the return match against Benfica.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has declared Romelu Lukaku "100 percent fit" to face Cyprus in their final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

With Fellaini set to sit out United's trip to Anfield, Mourinho is likely to turn to the club's reigning Player of the Year, Ander Herrera, to help provide cover in the middle of the park.

"I have not had any communication with Jose Mourinho on the subject of Marouane", Martinez said, per the Daily Mirror.

As the Belgian was confirmed to be missing United's game against Liverpool, some of the Red Devils' fans took to Twitter to express their sadness, and even anger with Belgium manager Martinez.

"He's been working on an individual basis, really good work, but we need to keep that in mind".

An untimely knock has seen him ruled out of a crunch clash with Liverpool on Saturday, as he joins Paul Pogba on the Old Trafford injury list.

The England global then opted for Patrice Evra at left-back, and Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Paul Pogba in a midfield four, with Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford as his two strikers.
