Marouane Fellaini injury is not a problem for Man Utd - Jose Mourinho

Marouane Fellaini injury is not a problem for Man Utd - Jose Mourinho

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has revealed that midfielder Marouane Fellaini in fact suffered knee ligament damage against Bosnia-Herzegovina. At Anfield on Saturday, he will be eager to prove a point to the Manchester United manager.

Liverpool suffered a major injury blow when they learned that they would be without Sadio Mané, who will miss six weeks with a hamstring injury suffered while on global duty with Senegal this week, but rivals Manchester United have had their own injury issues to worry about.

"I like to play against the best teams, I like to play against the best clubs and I like to play at the best stadiums - the stadiums with more history", Mourinho told Sky Sports. We may cry with the process that leads to the injuries but we don't cry with the injuries.

The Portuguese manager is already facing a shortage in midfield following an injury to Lukaku's compatriot Marouane Fellaini and will be delighted to see that his top marksman is not facing a spell on the sidelines.

Chelsea's two-time Player of the Year, Mata, was soon usurped by Oscar after Mourinho's return to the club at the end of the season.

Mourinho and Lukaku have been reunited to devastating effect this season, with the £75m striker spearheading Manchester United's attack and scoring 11 goals in his first 10 appearances.

Both Mourinho and Salah will meet again on October 14 when Liverpool hosts Manchester United in the Premier League.

From Romelu Lukaku to Filipe Luis, here are the top 10 players who went on to shine after being rejected by Mourinho.

"It wouldn't be the right example to my players to prepare the Liverpool game in one way and then to prepare for next week's trip to Huddersfield in a different way", he added.

He's become an important part of Mourinho's plans, but the Portuguese isn't anxious about players missing through injury.

They face seventh-placed Liverpool on Saturday.
