Manchester United Football Club have picked up a few injury issues already during this current international break.
Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic have both pulled out of their respective countries’ upcoming games, while Marouane Fellaini missed Belgium training with a problem.
However, there has been some good news. Journalist Kristof Terreur has confirmed that Fellaini is now back in action for the other Red Devils; easing the concerns on Jose Mourinho as he prepares for a tough trip to Stamford Bridge.
Still with Belgium: the man who rejected Aston Villa yesterday night and is in talks with Monaco, Thierry Henry.

Fellaini has become a real key player for United; whether sections of our fanbase like it or not.
There were doubts about whether he was going to sign a new deal at Old Trafford. Eventually, he did put pen to paper and he has started this season wonderfully well.
The physicality, the aerial threat and the on-field leadership has been brilliant. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that he has been our most consistent midfielder to start this season.
To hear that the injury problem isn’t anything serious is a massive relief. We desperately need him for the trip to Stamford Bridge. His powerful presence could be key if we’re to take anything back to Manchester from a ground we usually struggle at.
