5. Maraoune Fellaini

Manchester United are facing an anxious wait on the fitness of Marouane Fellaini, with the Belgian international set to have a wrist operation that could keep him out until December, reports the Daily Mail.

The £27.5million summer signing from Everton missed United’s 2-1 win over Sunderland at the weekend, and is set to see a specialist in Manchester before being assessed by medics at the Belgian national team.

He will definitely miss the World Cup qualifiers against Croatia and Wales, and could face up to seven weeks on the sidelines.

Manchester United boss David Moyes had previously said the wrist ligament damage picked up by midfielder “doesn’t look good”.

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

“It doesn’t sound too good but we’ll wait and find out on Monday.”

Should Fellaini need an operation, he may have to wear a special fitted wrist brace when he returns to action.

The Belgian has found it difficult to settle at Old Trafford since his deadline day switch, and came in for criticism following his performances in the 4-1 defeat to Manchester City, and the 2-1 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

The news he is facing a lengthy lay off could not have come at a worse time for the 25-year-old, who is desperate to win over the Manchester United faithful.
