Fellaini, who is struggling with a calf injury, is on track to play Sunday against Everton, the Telegraph reports.

Fellaini has been quite a disappointment for United after coming over in an £27.5 million deal last summer from Everton. He has featured in 20 matches this season, but has yet to find the back of the net after doing so 11 times in Premier League play last season.

Fellaini claimed that the elbow he threw in the Manchester derby that earned him a yellow card was not intentional and was only an effort to protect possession of the ball, reports Sky Sports.

Fellaini's clash with Pablo Zabaleta on Tuesday was criticized heavily following the match, with many pundits claiming the Belgian was lucky to escape with only a yellow card. Fellaini said he moved to protect the ball and Zabaleta ran into his forearm.

Fellaini returned to action to face Crystal Palace on Saturday after being out with wrist and groin injuries.

The midfielder was expected to return in early February from his wrist injury, but suffered a groin problem, which kept him out longer than expected. He started Saturday's match against Crystal Palace.

Fellaini suffered a groin injury during training, and will be forced to sit for at least another week, the Manchester Evening News reports. Manager David Moyes said "Marouane picked up a groin injury in training which will probably rule him out for another week possibly. His wrist injury is much improved, but he just felt his groin after training one day this week. We’ll keep an eye on him for a few days."

Fellaini hasn't played since December 4 thanks to injuries to his back, wrist, and now his groin. He's been a colossal disappointment for the Red Devils, having played only 11 Premier League games this season. Being sidelined for another week means he won't face Fulham on Sunday, nor Arsenal on Wednesday. His next shot after that comes February 22 against Crystal Palace.

Fellaini (wrist), who was expected to be available for Saturday's match at Stoke City, may return next weekend against Fulham, the Daily Mail reports.

Fellaini is reportedly close to being able to wear a flexible brace on his wrist, which would allow him to get back on the pitch. However, he hasn't played since December, so it wouldn't be surprising if there was some rust when he does eventually return.

Fellaini (wrist) has been training with the first team and could return for Tuesday's Premier League match against Cardiff City, the Guardian reports.

Fellaini hasn't played since early December due to back and wrist injuries, but he finally seems ready to return. His fantasy value should steadily increase, with Wayne Rooney (groin) and Robin van Persie (thigh) also set to return, plus the United debut of Juan Mata on Tuesday.
