Belgium declare Romelu Lukaku "100 percent fit" after overcoming an ankle injury

Following the news that Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini is set to miss this weekend's Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield following a minor knee injury.

The former Everton man went off after 29 minutes of a World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

Despite Martinez's comments, United say they will wait before ruling Fellaini out. According to the Daily Star, "A stretching programme was already in place for him prior to his injury", though it seems like further measures will need to be taken to stop the problem recurring. Martinez's decision to pick Marouane Fellaini against Bosnia was not wrong per se; it was, above anything, the poor playing surface that caused problems. Paul Pogba is already sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Bosnians fall in the autumn selection stage, first losing to Cyprus 2: 3, then defeated Gibraltar 4-0 and finally on Saturday at home in a super spectacular match lost Belgium with a score of 3: 4.

Belgium have already qualified for Russian Federation after finishing top of Group H and Martinez may not even play Lukaku against Cyprus, a game of little importance.


The pair's absence will mean Mourinho has to rely on Matic and Herrera.

He has won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League and Community Shield while with United, and the 27-year-old lies one appearance short of 250 for the club.

Despite the injury not being too serious, Fellaini will now miss Manchester United's crunch clash against bitter local rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Fellaini proved his worth to Manchester United before the worldwide break by scoring twice during their 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Romelu Lukaku, Fellaini's club and worldwide team-mate, did not play against Bosnia-Herzegovina because of an ankle problem.
