Manchester United could be without midfielder Marouane Fellaini for seven weeks as the Belgian playmaker faces possible surgery after sustaining a wrist injury.

Fellaini, who signed for Manchester United from Everton on deadline day for £27.5m, is yet to score for his new side, and was forced to miss the Red Devils' Premier League 2-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

It is now likely that the Belgium international will be pulled out of his national side's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Croatia and Wales.

And manager David Moyes admitted that the 25-year-old could be out until December.

As quoted on the Daily Mail, the Scotsman said, "He's going to see a specialist.

"It doesn't sound too good but we'll wait and find out on Monday."

Manchester United's upcoming Premier League fixture sees them take on this weekend's 2-0 victors Southampton, after they saw off the challenge of Swansea City at St Mary's Stadium.

The last two Premier League meetings between the Saints and United saw two successive wins for the Red Devils, scoring 2-1 in January, and 3-2 in September 2012, with Southampton failing to beat them in any tournament since a Premier League 1-0 win back in August 2003.
