Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League title this season for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's final campaign in charge in 2013.

Jones reported for England duty last week but was then sent home as a precaution.

Roberto Martinez has cleared the way for Romelu Lukaku to play for Belgium in their dead rubber against Cyprus on Tuesday in a move that could antagonise Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Belgium qualified for the World Cup finals in Russian Federation ahead of this latest pair of qualifying games and Lukaku missed the weekend win over Bosnia with an ankle injury.

Belgium are already qualified for next summers' tournament, and Lukaku is only just recovering from an ankle injury.

The Red Devils won an epic global match 4-3 but having already qualified, Jose Mourinho can say with some accuracy that his player should not have been involved.

Following the news that Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini is set to miss this weekend's Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield following a minor knee injury.

Speaking ahead of tonight's qualifier against Cyprus, Martinez said: "Marouane, it has been confirmed that he has got ligament damage".

"Now he is 100% but we need to take into consideration that he has been with the group for only one session".

Estonia's national team is approaching the match with a series of 4 unbeaten matches, one match in a draw with Greece 0-0 and having won three victories over Latvia 2: 1, Cyprus 1-0 and Gibraltar 6-0 this past Saturday.

The England worldwide then opted for Patrice Evra at left-back, and Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and Paul Pogba in a midfield four, with Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford as his two strikers.
