Martinez confirms Lukaku fit to face Cyprus

Posted October 11, 2017

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez insists he remains on good terms with Jose Mourinho, despite the knee injury sustained by Marouane Fellaini while on worldwide duty.

"It was a very unfortunate injury for Marouane". There's no need to say what it means for us and for our fans, and I hope that we can play a great game and bring the three points back to Manchester.

"I don't think the state of the pitch played any part and it was just a collision between two strong players who wanted to win the ball".

"Marouane is a very quick healer but obviously now we had the scan and it is damage in the ligament".

"I can see he is really enjoying being in a team where there is very little margin for error". The first 48 hours, you have still got the swelling. But we knew that on Friday.

Fellaini is now sure to miss United's trip to Anfield this weekend, while he will also miss Belgium's clash with Cyprus on Wednesday morning AEDT.

Crude oil futures fall on weak global cues
Brent for December settlement dropped 48 cents, or 0.9%, to $55.52 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The latest inventory data from API added to pessimism with a 4.19-million-barrel build in gasoline stockpiles.

The England global then opted for Patrice Evra at left-back, and Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Paul Pogba in a midfield four, with Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford as his two strikers.

"Romelu is fit and available, he's training with us tonight, ' Martinez said on Monday".

The 29-year-old midfielder started Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday but was forced off in the 29th minute of the match with an apparent knee problem.

He suffered discomfort against Palace but is now fully fit according to Roberto Martinez, the Belgium manager. The Belgian boss is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Romelu Lukaku, Fellaini's club and global team-mate, did not play against Bosnia-Herzegovina because of an ankle problem.

Now he has returned, United's medical staff will ascertain the extent of the damage and how long he will be sidelined.
