Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for a "couple of weeks" with a knee injury suffered while on global duty with Belgium.

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

As much as Fellaini has been maligned during his time at Old Trafford, the figures show how desperate Manchester United will be to get him back.

After amassing 19 points from seven league games, United are second in the standings below neighbours Manchester City on goal difference.

Lukaku missed the win over Bosnia at the weekend due to an ankle injury which led to speculation suggesting he could be a doubt for United's clash with Liverpool on Saturday. 'And, no, I have not received a call from Mourinho.

Paul Pogba: Man Utd midfielder has long-term injury, says Jose Mourinho
Pogba injured his hamstring in a Champions League tie against Basel earlier this month and initial reports suggested the France midfielder could be out for 12 weeks.

The former Everton manager told reporters: "Romelu Lukaku is fit".

And, one of the big stories of the worldwide break was Marouane Fellaini's injury, picked up playing on a bad pitch for Belgium v Bosnia-Herzegovina.

And Michael Carrick also drove in for training in his silver range rover, after picking up an injury himself. "A collision between two strong players, very committed that they want to win the ball, and unfortunately Marouane ended with a damaged ligament".

Chris Smalling has played alongside some top talent during his time at Manchester United, and has now attempted to piece together a dream XI of Red Devils team-mates.

Fellaini has become a key man in Mourinho's plans this season, and in particularly since an injury to fellow midfielder Paul Pogba, and United could ill afford a lengthy absence for him. After scoring 25 goals over 141 appearances with the club, he moved on to Manchester United in the form of a four-year deal in September 2013.
