Marouane Fellaini suffered knee ligament damage against Bosnia-Herzegovina, says Belgium manager Roberto Martinez.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez today revealed a freaky story surrounding his phone, Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, and a complete stranger.

As per the Belgium boss, he has received numerous phone calls at 3AM, asking him to keep Lukaku out of his squad for tomorrow night.

Speaking to the media on Monday, Martinez said: "Marouane Fellaini, it has been confirmed that he has got ligament damage".

Jones played 90 minutes in United's last game against Crystal Palace but was forced out of World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania with a knee problem.

Belgium have already secured qualification for the World Cup, while Cyprus' hopes are already over - meaning Tuesday's match is something of a dead rubber.

The FC crew assess whether Manchester United have actually improved or are benefiting from a favourable run of fixtures.

Liam Cunningham Offers Game of Thrones Final Season Production Update
HBO has yet to announce when the final season of Game of Thrones will arrive, with Season 8 possibly not premiering until 2019 . It will not be all work for the cast of "Game of Thrones" season 8 .

"With long-term injuries, I don't speak about them, so Ibra, Pogba, Rojo and these players, I don't think about them".

Martinez was asked whether Fellaini was a "quick healer" and replied: 'I don't know.

The often maligned midfielder has become a key figure for Jose Mourinho's side in recent weeks following a hamstring injury to Paul Pogba in early September.

Martinez is not sure how long Fellanini will be on the sidelines for and thinks the situation will become clearer in the coming days.

Powerful hitman Lukaku made the move from Everton to Premier League rivals Man United during the summer, with the Belgian having since taken to life with the Red Devils in extremely impressive fashion.

"Damage could be very little or very big".
