Fellaini has been one of the stand-out performers for the Toffees, although the 24-year-old picked up the injury during Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Wigan and a scan revealed the extent of the injury when the player reported for international duty with Belgium.
A statement on the Belgian FA’s website read: “Fellaini suffered a small tear at the juncture of muscle and tendon in the knee. The injury was revealed during a scan.
“He will be out three weeks. It has been agreed with his club Everton FC he will rehabilitate in Belgium during this period.”
Everton responded with a statement reading: “The Blues midfielder will miss the World Cup qualifiers against Serbia and Scotland but no estimation is yet being made on the length of his absence.”
Fellaini has started all seven of Everton’s Premier League matches this season, scoring three goals including the winner against Manchester United in his team’s first game of the season.
