Manchester United take on Manchester City tomorrow night, with Jose Mourinho’s men looking to extract some revenge on a Pep Guardiola side that quite frankly embarrassed us last time out. The game will obviously be an extremely hard fought one, but United’s cause hasn’t been made any easier.
According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United will be without the services of their midfield enforcer, Marouane Fellaini. The much-maligned Belgian was involved in a nasty clash with David Luiz, in which Chelsea’s Brazilian centre-back should’ve certainly seen red – but somehow managed to escape with only a booking.
Although no timeline has been put on a return for Marouane, the report reckons we’ll be without him for at least a few weeks – which certainly leaves Jose Mourinho’s midfield looking very thin on the ground.
Every cloud does have a silver lining and all that though, which means we could well see some more of Michael Carrick who has looked nothing short of supreme in his couple of appearances so far.
