Manchester United have suffered an injury blow with midfielder Marouane Fellaini facing seven weeks on the sidelines with a wrist problem, according to the Daily Mail.

The Belgian international aggravated the injury last week and was forced to miss Saturday’s 2-1 win away at Sunderland, which was the first time Fellaini has failed to feature for the club in the league since making a £27.5m move from Everton on transfer deadline day.


Boss David Moyes confirmed after the game at the Stadium of Light that the injury ‘does not look good’ and revealed that the 25-year-old will now see a specialist with United waiting anxiously to find out the extent of the problem.

‘He’s going to see a specialist,’ said Moyes.

‘It doesn’t sound too good but we’ll wait and find out on Monday.’ Moyes is quoted as saying by the Mail

However, the Mail newspaper claim Fellaini will require an operation to fix the problem and as a result, the midfielder will be ruled out for seven weeks meaning he wont play again until December.

If proved accurate, the news will come as a blow to United who have made a poor start to their Premier League title defence with the Red Devils sitting in 9th place after their comeback win over Sunderland at the weekend.

With Moyes yet to confirm the full extent of the injury, there is still a glimmer of hope that the problem is not as bad as first feared, but either way Fellaini is certain to miss Belgium’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Croatia and Wales.
