Roberto Martinez confirms Romelu Lukaku has recovered from ankle injury

The Manchester United midfielder was taken off in the first half of Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia & Herzegovina, and scans have shown he could be sidelined for two to three weeks.

While they have nursed one United star back to fitness, Belgium have seen another laid low while away on global duty. Fellaini has appeared in seven games for United and has netted four goals.

The United striker missed Saturday's 4-3 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo as a result but Martinez has now declared the player is "100 per cent" fit to face Cyprus.

Jose Mourinho's squad has been hit by several injuries in midfield as they gear up to face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

According to the Sun, the Frenchman's ongoing hamstring problems are set to rule him out until the hectic festive fixtures, and "key games against Tottenham and Chelsea and, potentially, the Manchester derby at the start of December".

It had been feared that Fellaini had suffered a serious ligament problem, but the Belgian FA confirmed on social media over the weekend that the midfielder had simply strained his medial collateral ligament.

"It was a very unfortunate injury for Marouane Fellaini", he said.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Mourinho is concerned that Lukaku could further aggravate the injury ahead of United's crucial Premier League match against Liverpool, a game which he will be desperate to have the former Everton man fully fit for.

Michael Carrick is selected to pick a pass, Ryan Giggs' career "speaks for itself" and Paul Pogba is charged with the task of going "box-to-box".

It seems very likely that Ander Herrera will play for Manchester United alongside Nemanja Matic at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

"I have seen a difference in the maturity of Romelu since his move to Manchester United", Martinez admitted, per the Mirror.
