Fellaini went to ground clutching his left knee following a challenge from Arsenal's Sead Kolasinac during the first half of Belgium's eventful 4-3 triumph at the Grbavica Stadium. Fellaini limped off after 29 minutes after hurting his left knee in an awkward fall. There are fears that he has suffered knee ligament damage.

The injury has deepened the club's injury concerns ahead of an important encounter against Liverpool in Premier League.

The Belgian has enjoyed a rich vein of form lately, scoring four goals in all competitions and adding a further assist for Jose Mourinho's side this season.

It's claimed Fellaini will be out for a "couple of weeks" after the scan confirmed a "MCL sprain".

The current threat level in the U.K.is "severe"-the second highest classification, which indicates an attack is likely". Mark added: 'I think everyone seems to be just trying to carry on as normal because no one knows what is happening'.

"We are all anxious about Fellaini". The club's manager José Mourinho had already expressed concern that an global break could break the team's momentum before the crucial match, and will be quite unhappy with his worst fears coming true. He's also out for United's titanic rivalry clash at Liverpool next Saturday. "We fear that there's ligament damage", confirmed the former Everton manager.

Fellaini could miss seven games in just three weeks.

Of course, this is an unsettling news for Mourinho.MU has already lost flamboyant midfielder Paul Pogba to injury. The Premier League champions are at Crystal Palace on Saturday....

His withdrawal was clearly felt by Belgium as it allowed Bosnia to equalise in the game, but they went on to win 4-3 in the end to send a clear message to the rest of Europe ahead of next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.
