MAROUANE FELLAINI has revealed his knee injury is "not too serious" but the Everton midfielder will miss both of his country's games this week.
The Belgium international picked up the knock in last weekend's 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic but aggravated the problem when on international duty with Marc Wilmot's side.
Initial fears were that Fellaini could be sidelined for as many as two Everton matches, including the Merseyside derby at the end of the month.
The medical team at Finch Farm will asses the 24-year-old as soon as he returns to England though it looks likely manager David Moyes will have to do without him for next Sunday's trip to Queens Park Rangers.
"As you have probably seen and heard I am currently suffering from a knee injury," said Fellaini.
"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.
