Fellaini sustained a knee injury and it looks like he will be out for about three weeks. THe news is vague and we don't know if he picked up the knock on international duty or during the match against Wigan or some practice. Every news outlet is reporting something different.
This is awful news and depletes our already razor thin midfield. We don't really have anyone to control the midfield now without Fellaini and Gibson.
The only good thing, is that the injury happened before the international break so we got some free time for Fellaini to heal. It still leaves us undermanned for the QPR match and possibly for the the Merseyside Derby (Nooo!).
