Manchester United have already suffered some bad news on the injury front this worldwide break, with Marouane Fellaini having reportedly picked up knee ligament damage while on duty with Belgium.

Romelu Lukaku has been passed fit to face Cyprus in Belgium's World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.

Fellaini proved his worth to Manchester United before the worldwide break by scoring twice during their 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

At just 24 years of age, the Belgian cost £75 million and was presented with the task of supplying the goals United would miss from last season's top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 29-year-old was forced off during the first half of Belgium's 4-3 World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

"Romelu Lukaku is fit", he said.
