Jose Mourinho: Lukaku may not start in final against Chelsea

Jose Mourinho: Lukaku may not start in final against Chelsea

Jose Mourinho's side face Watford in their last league game at Old Trafford on Sunday before the encounter at Wembley.

If Lukaku does end up failing to start in the final, it seems as if United's attacking responsibilities will be left to the hands of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez, as the Red Devils look to secure their fourth trophy under Mourinho.

United have launched their third kit first, a classy dark blue number inspired by the shirt worn when they won the 1968 European Cup.

"He's in Belgium having his treatment and there is communication between the doctors in Belgium and our medical department.Lukaku has scored 27 goals since joining United from Everton in a £75 million ($101 million) deal previous year". 'Again we try to see if it is possible for the last match'.

The burly forward suffered an ankle injury during United's 2-1 win over Arsenal on April 28 and has not been in action since then.

Michael Carrick will captain United on Sunday to mark the England midfielder's final appearance before joining Mourinho's backroom staff.

The Belgian hitman injured his ankle in the game against Arsenal at Old Trafford. I want him to feel what the Manchester United supporters feel in relation to him.

In an interview with DHNet, Lukaku admitted: "I knew I was going to play".

"So he starts the match and we make the change in some moment so he can leave the pitch alone".

"We hope he can play in the final", said Mourinho. "The only problem was I also knew he didn't want to play me", Lukaku told Play Sports.

But Lukaku's rehabillitation appears to be going well if his Instagram is anything to go by.
