New signing Fellaini will have to watch on from the sidelines.
There is more bad news for Manchester United as their indifferent season takes another blow with the news that Marouane Fellaini will be out for several weeks with a wrist injury, reports the Mirror.
It’s suggested the problem is quite serious and could see Fellaini out of action for the Red Devils until December.
The midfielder has suffered ligament damage and will see both a specialist and the Belgium national team doctor, before having surgery on the area.
As a result of the injury the £27.5m new signing had to sit out Saturday’s trip to Sunderland, where a brace for national compatriot Adnan Januzaj secured the club’s first league win in three games.
Fellaini has had a difficult start to the 25-year-old’s career at Old Trafford, reverting back to playing as a defensive midfielder and criticised extensively by fans and the media alike.
The Belgian has played five matches for United in all competitions, including making his debut in the Champions League in a 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
The Premier League champions are said to lack creativity in midfield this term and the loss of Fellaini to injury will not help that problem.
The retirement of Paul Scholes and the failure to sign stars such as Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera has seen manager David Moyes struggling in the Scot’s new role.
Three defeats from seven matches in the English top tier has not been a great start, but the 50-year-old will now get a chance to reflect as the domestic competition takes a break for 10 days due to international ties.
