Manchester United Football Club will now be preparing for their biggest fixture of the season thus far; Liverpool away.
Jose Mourinho will be desperate to get another victory on the board, but this game will be difficult, make no mistake about it.
Ahead of that match, Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out with injury, but the severity of his knee issue has remained unclear.
Now, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has been speaking to the media, including Sky Sports News, and claimed that the 6’5 midfielder has suffered knee ligament damage – and we know how serious those problems can become.

A serious knee injury could potentially rule Fellaini out for the remainder of the season. Heck, both Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered ligamental injuries back in April and they still don’t look like returning soon.
The thing that irks me most is the fact that Belgium had already qualified, so why risk Fellaini’s fitness if Martinez knew he wasn’t 100% fit? It just doesn’t make any sense to me in the slightest. Now, I just hope that the former Everton boss doesn’t do the same with Romelu Lukaku when Belgium play Cyprus on Tuesday night.
