Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini limped off after 29 minutes of Belgium’s 4-3 victory in Bosnia and Herzegovina earlier today.
It was noticeable the 29-year-old had a problem with his left knee as he departed the field at 1-0.
Belgium had already qualified for the 2018 World Cup prior to this weekend’s final two fixtures. As a result, manager Roberto Martinez didn’t take a chance on Romelu Lukaku today.
Lukaku joined up with the Belgian national team with a knock and was not selected for today’s matchday squad. Chelsea striker led the line up front of the Red Devils today.
Although nothing is official yet, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez fears that Marouane Fellaini’s injury could be as serious as knee ligament damage.

Knee ligament damage would likely mean several months on the sideline for Fellaini if Martinez’s fears are confirmed.
Fellaini has made an excellent start to the season – having been used as an impact sub before Paul Pogba’s injury. The central midfielder has scored three goals in his six Premier League appearances this season as well as a goal in the Champions League.
We have not conceded a single goal in the 421 minutes in all competitions that Fellaini has played this season.
Manchester United return to Premier League action at Liverpool next Saturday and now Jose Mourinho is without both Paul Pogba and Fellaini in his centre midfield.
Marouane Fellaini is in the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.
