Fellaini blow for United


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marouane Fellaini will miss up to a month due to a calf injury.

Having played just 31 minutes for United since Solskjaer's appointment, Fellaini was left out of the matchday squad for last weekend's 1-0 win over Tottenham.

He did train with his team-mates on Wednesday but Solskjaer has revealed that he is set to be sidelined for up to four weeks, ruling him out of the FA Cup fourth round tie at Arsenal as well as the Champions League last-16 first-leg against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on February 12.

"There's not many issues. I think just small niggles, as there always is at this point of the season," Solskjaer reported ahead of Saturday's tie against Brighton.

"Chris [Smalling], Marcos [Rojo] just started running lightly, so not fit yet. Alexis [Sanchez] has trained all week, so hopefully he'll be available.

"And Felli is the long-term one that's out. He'll be out for a few weeks. He'll probably be at least three or four weeks. He's got a calf problem and that's sad.

"There's X factors in different players and we all know Felli's X-factor and then again he'll be working hard to get back in when all the big games are coming as well."
