FA Cup final: Mourinho express fears over Lukaku's readiness

FA Cup final: Mourinho express fears over Lukaku's readiness”

The striker scored 27 goals before suffering the ankle problem.

Jose Mourinho refuses to rule Romelu Lukaku out of next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea, even if it means naming the striker on the bench.

Since his lay-off, United have lost to Brighton and drew 0-0 to West Ham on Thursday evening.

United fans tweeted during the game that they missed Romelu Lukaku, who was absent through injury, but Martial and Rashford could also have filled in up front.

The centre-forward picked up an ankle injury during the 2-1 win over Arsenal a fortnight ago which has ended his Premier League season prematurely.

Jose Mourinho is still unsure whether Lukaku will make it for the Wembley showdown with Chelsea on May 19 and United have lacked presence up front without their main man.

Michael Carrick will start as captain against Watford in his final appearance for United before joining Mourinho's backroom team for next season.

"He is in Belgium, having his treatment with communication between the doctors in Belgium and our medical department". 'Again we try to see if it is possible for the last match'.

"Carrick had already been decided", the Portuguese added.

"I knew I was going to play".

Mourinho will not field a young team against Watford, even though United are assured of second place behind champions Manchester City regardless of what unfolds on Sunday.

However, Mourinho is ready to give the attackers another chance to impress as he's confirmed Martial and Rashford will start against Watford on Sunday afternoon.

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