As Manchester United prepare to host Huddersfield Town tomorrow, midfielder Marouane Fellaini is now at the top of the injury concern list. He limped out of Wednesday night’s loss at Tottenham Hotspur after playing just seven minutes in relief of Paul Pogba.
Reports say he might need surgery, and if so, could be out eight weeks. We could find out more on Friday.
