Smalling names four current players in dream Man United XI

The Red Devils are already without midfielder Paul Pogba, while Marouane Fellaini will also be absent after suffering knee ligament damage in the game against Bosnia.

Manchester United have received a boost prior to their Premier League showdown with Liverpool on Saturday after in-form striker Romelu Lukaku was passed fit for Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Cyprus on Tuesday.

Romelu Lukaku arrived at Manchester United this summer with a weight of expectation on his shoulders. Fellaini has appeared in seven games for United and has netted four goals.

The Manchester United striker missed the 4-3 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina at the weekend with an ankle injury and was a doubt for this week's dead runner against the Cypriots.

"I have not had any communication with Jose Mourinho on the subject of Marouane", The Mirror quotes Martinez as saying.

The club are believed to be concerned that his running style may have been the cause of the injury, and are considering using a running coach in the hope of avoiding a recurrence.

United manager Jose Mourinho had voiced concerns over how the global break could stall his side's momentum ahead of next Saturday's high-profile clash against Liverpool at Anfield and a mounting injury list will only dampen his mood.

There is an uncertainity surrounding Michael Carrick too which means the club will be with only Ander Hererra and Nemanja Matic in midfield.

In a post on social media, Belgium said Fellaini has had a scan and will be "out for a couple of weeks". "A collision between two strong players, very committed that they want to win the ball, and unfortunately Marouane ended with a damaged ligament".

No wonder Manchester United fans rate Marouane Fellaini so highly!
