United will be hoping for positive news on the midfielder ahead of their Premier League clash against arch rivals Liverpool on October 14.

However, he was back starting in their World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina, but failed to finish the game owing to the injury.

Fellaini has been with Belgium during the global break but had to leave the field after 29 minutes of the World Cup qualifier with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Roberto Martinez, the Belgium coach, said he feared ligament damage.

In-form Fellaini played for only 29 minutes before limping off on field with a knee injury.

"We are all anxious about Fellaini", Roberto Martinez, the Belgium manager, said after the game.

Discussing his player yesterday, Martinez said: "We are all anxious about Fellaini".

Australian police are assisting their USA counterparts on the investigation into Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend Marilou Danley. Detective Mike McCarthy said, with the police saying in a further statement that there was no threat to any venue in the city.

"We fear that there is ligament damage".

However, on Sunday the Belgian FA announced via their official Twitter account that the injury was not as bad as first expected.

Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for at least two weeks after suffering a knee ligament sprain while on worldwide duty.

Fellaini will be hoping to be involved for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Liverpool in their next crunch Premier League game at Anfield next weekend. Manchester United are now placed at second position in the Premier League with six wins and one draw in seven matches. Four goals from 8 games in all competitions have equaled the number of goals scored by Fellaini last season from 47 parties.

The loss will be one that United may look at particularly ruefully, given that Belgium had already qualified for the 2018 World Cup.
