Manchester United faces Liverpool without Marouane Fellaini

English football powerhouse, Manchester United will battle Liverpool at Anfield without resurgent midfielder, Marouane Fellaini.  It is confirmed that Fellaini will miss the Premier League game at Liverpool after picking up a knee injury while playing for Belgium.

The 29-year-old went off after 29 minutes of a World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

In a post on social media, Belgium said Fellaini has had a scan and will be “out for a couple of weeks”.

They face Cyprus in their final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, while United travel to Anfield on October 14.

The Old Trafford club then visit Benfica in the Champions League four days later before a trip to Huddersfield in the league on October 21.

Fellaini has scored four goals for United this season, including two in a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace in their last game before the international break.

He looks set to join fellow United midfielder Paul Pogba, who is out with a hamstring injury, on the sidelines for his club.

With Fellaini out of the game against Liverpool, Jose Mourinho looks short of option in the middle of the pack. The Portuguese will likely draft in Ander Hererra or Michael Carrick. While the former could easily slot in, the latter is a veteran whose playing time has been severely limited since the beginning of last season.
