Man Utd midfielder Fellaini struggling with injury

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is battling to overcome a rib injury.

The Mail on Sunday says United will miss Fellaini for the remainder of the holiday period after it emerged that the Belgian has a rib injury.

United manager Louis van Gaal had put Fellaini's absence from the squad down to a mystery 'virus'.

However, it is understood Fellaini is also nursing injured ribs suffered in the win against Liverpool a fortnight ago. They are expected to sideline the former Everton player until after the FA Cup third-round tie at Yeovil a week tomorrow.
