Injured Lukaku 'may not start FA Cup final'

Romelu Lukaku

JOSE MOURINHO'S FA Cup final conundrum continued last night as Manchester United failed to find their top form against West Ham at the London Stadium.

Lukaku, who joined United last summer from Everton, has missed the last two Premier League fixtures after suffering an ankle injury against Arsenal at the end of last month.

"We hope he can play in the final", said Mourinho, per the club's official website.

"He is in Belgium, having his treatment with communication between the doctors in Belgium and our medical department. We are waiting to see if he can play in the final - if not starting at least to be on the bench".

The United faithful will be holding their breath regarding the fitness of star forward Romelu Lukaku who is now nursing an ankle injury back in his native.

Mourinho had confirmed under-fire Marcus Rashford and Antony Martial would start the team's final Premier League game against Watford.


Mourinho slated the pair for their performances in the 1-0 defeat at Brighton and ignored them for most of Thursday's drab 0-0 draw at West Ham.

The Belgium striker is also a doubt for the Wembley showpiece against Chelsea on May 19, but Mourinho hopes he will be involved in some capacity, an if it means he has to settle for a place among the substitutes.

Meanwhile, United will use their final game against Watford at Old Trafford to honour Michael Carrick. 'He is not going to end the match because I want him to leave that pitch alone and I want him to feel what the Manchester United supporters feel in relation to him.

"I have every player apart from Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini available and I won't go to the young players".

"I knew I was going to play", he told Play Sports.
