Fellaini plays down knee injury

Published Add your comment

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini does not believe his knee injury is serious and is targeting a swift return to action.

The Belgium international sustained the problem in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Wigan but it was not picked up until 48 hours later. His injury was scanned while he was in Belgium and the results were sent back to the club's Finch Farm training ground for Everton's medical staff to assess.

Fellaini, who was withdrawn from World Cup qualifiers against Serbia and Scotland, told evertonfc.com: "I am currently suffering from a knee injury: fortunately it is not too serious but I will have to miss the two games with Belgium. I am hoping to be back playing for Everton as soon as possible."
