Manchester United problems mount as three new injuries plague squad

Paul Thomas

David Moyes' job is getting even harder thanks to injuries, with Jonny Evans, Marouane Fellaini, and Phil Jones all now suffering injury problems ahead of Manchester United's weekend clash against Fulham.

Manchester United's game against Fulham may be trickier than we had hoped - Marouane Fellaini, Jonny Evans, and Phil Jones could all be absent for it.

Fellaini was supposed to be coming back imminently but a new groin injury will rule him out for a further week. Meanwhile, Jonny Evans will play no part in the game after his injury against Stoke City, and Phil Jones will have to be assessed.

This is really not good news at all, although Nemanja Vidic will at least return from suspension to give us a bit more strength at centre-back. With Adnan Januzaj also rested against Stoke, we could well see the much-ballyhooed RVP-Rooney-Januzaj-Mata foursome in action together, although whether or not Van Persie will be able to play the full game remains to be seen.

The game of course is difficult to predict - Fulham are the worst side in the league, but they've just gone out and bought lots of new players, which could be dangerous. After Rene Meulensteen went out and bought Kostas Mitroglou, it meant we didn't have to face him in the Champions League - what's the betting he scores against us on Sunday?
