Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is a big doubt for the upcoming Premier League clash with title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after limping out of training.
The Red Devils travel to take on Chelsea in a Matchday 9 league clash scheduled to take place on Saturday lunchtime and they could be without the services of their Belgian international star.
Marouane Fellaini had taken ill while he was on international duty with the Belgium national team and didn’t feature for both the UEFA Nations League (UNL) win over Switzerland and the international friendly draw with neighbours Netherlands.
On his return to Manchester United, the former Everton insisted on joining training on Wednesday afternoon as the team stepped up preparation for the Chelsea game on Saturday.
According to popular English news outlet The Sun, the 30-year-old midfield general pulled up towards the end of training on Wednesday afternoon thereby making him a huge doubt for the Chelsea.
Marouane Fellaini started the season out of the first XI but the Belgian midfielder has managed to find a way into the first team on the back of impressive performances in the Red Devils shirt.
He has started four of the last five league games and was the catalyst for the 3-2 comeback win over Newcastle United in the Red Devils’ last Premier League clash.
