Manchester United vs Brighton & Hove Albion - Fellaini to miss with calf injury

Alexis Sanchez and Eric Bailly are back for Manchester United this weekend, but Marouane Fellaini will miss the Brighton match and a further month.

Sanchez missed last week’s 1-0 win at Tottenham after a recurrence of a hamstring issue, while centre-back Bailly completed a three-match ban.

Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed imposing midfielder Fellaini faces up to four weeks out with a calf injury, while defenders Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are stepping up their rehabilitation.

Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma faces a late fitness test.

The Mali international missed last weekend’s defeat to Liverpool due to a hip problem and will be assessed before the trip to Old Trafford.

Left-back Bernardo (hamstring) and winger Jose Izquierdo (knee) remain sidelined, while Australia goalkeeper Mat Ryan and Iran winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh are still on international duty at the Asian Cup.
