Jose Mourinho provides worrying injury update on Romelu Lukaku

Mourinho updates on Lukaku's injury

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to confirm whether Romelu Lukaku will return in time for next month's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

The Belgium international sustained a foot injury during the second half of the 2-1 league win over Arsenal - following a challenge from Gunners' debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho failed to provide a timeline on Lukaku's injury but he is hopeful that the Belgian is not sidelined for the Cup final versus his former club.

He is quoted as saying on United's official website: "I don't think it's something, or I hope it's not, that in this moment keeps him immediately out of a game that is in three weeks' time."

Lukaku has been the undisputed first-choice for the striker's position this term and he has excelled with his performances as the season has progressed.

To date, the former Evertonian has notched 29 goals for Manchester United and he will be hoping that he can extend this tally before the end of the campaign.
