Manchester United Football Club come back with a bang this weekend, with the Red Devils heading to Stamford Bridge to take on an in-form Chelsea team.
However, before the clash, Jose Mourinho is left sweating on the fitness of one of his key players. Marouane Fellaini is a doubt with injury, according to The Peoples Person.
The 30-year-old Belgian has missed the last few training sessions while on international duty with an ongoing groin problem. With tough fixtures against the aforementioned Chelsea and Juventus just on the horizon, it couldn’t have come at a worse time.
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Fellaini has arguably been our most consistent midfielder this term. He has been excellent on both sides of the ball, putting in great displays far more often than not.
He has turned into the glue that holds this team together. The physicality, the aerial threat, the ability to pass the ball to his teammates. Without him, the game becomes much tougher – particularly if Nemanja Matic continues to struggle.
This is exactly why I hate these mid-season international breaks. No good ever comes from them, instead, every domestic manager is left worrying about who they’re going to lose to the inevitable injury that strikes more often than not.
