Roberto Martinez explains how Romelu Lukaku has improved since joining Manchester United

Manchester United supporters might have a massive reason to worry about at their hands.

Jose Mourinho could be without Marouane Fellaini for Saturday's visit to Liverpool and possibly for weeks after the Manchester United midfielder suffered suspected knee ligament damage on global duty with Belgium.

Fellaini lasted just 29 minutes of the 4-3 win before being substituted after a Bosnian player landed awkwardly on his left knee.

Given that this evening's game was essentially a dead rubber for Belgium, who have already qualified for the World Cup, Mourinho will be doubly annoyed with Roberto Martinez for playing Fellaini, who had already carrying a slight injury heading into the game. There are fears that he has suffered knee ligament damage.

Fellaini has become a key player for United in recent weeks and has scored four goals in his past five appearances for the club. "We fear that there's ligament damage".

Trump's New Outreach to Democrats: Health Care
So it makes sense that, with nothing else going for him on health care at the moment, Trump has called up Schumer to talk a deal. Whether Congressional Republicans would go along with a Trump-Schumer health care deal, though, is more uncertain.

United already have a mini-crisis in their midfield with Paul Pogba and Michael Carrick both on the sidelines, leaving Ander Herrera to step up to the plate.

The full extent of Fellaini's injury won't be clear until he undergoes a scan, but he will play no part in Belgium's final group game on Tuesday against Cyprus.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho, however, values the impact that Fellaini has had on his side's fortunes - particularly this season - and wants to retain the towering centre midfielder's qualities as his team push for a first Premier League title in six years.

Romelu Lukaku was rested for the Bosnia clash after picking up an ankle injury ahead of United's victory against Crystal Palace last month.
