Manchester United squad vs West Brom: Marouane Fellaini out injured

by Sam Peoples

Marouane Fellaini is set to miss Manchester United’s game against West Bromwich Albion this weekend after suffering an injury.

The Belgian featured for Man United in the game against CSKA Moscow so must have picked up a niggle either on Wednesday night or in training following the match.

In some good news, United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has been brought through into the matchday squad by Louis van Gaal for the first time.

The 18-year-old versatile defender is unlikely to get any minutes unless there are some unwanted injuries but the experience for him is more than enough to make it worthwhile.

Fellaini came on against CSKA Moscow and gave Louis van Gaal a different option up front, so he’ll probably be disappointed to not have him in his squad, especially as West Brom are likely to sit very compact and deep like CSKA Moscow did.

However, with the home crowd behind United and a much better team on paper, we should be coming away from this game with three points and Fellaini not being involved doesn’t change that at all.
