Belgian football expert provides fresh update on Lukakus injury

Lukaku could be deemed fit for the FA Cup final

Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur has revealed that Romelu Lukaku's ankle injury is only a minor one and he could return to first-team action ahead of the FA Cup final versus Chelsea.

The 24-year-old suffered the problem during the second half of United's 2-1 win over Arsenal and he instantly signalled towards the bench to make a substitution.

Despite this, he does not appear to have suffered a major issue and he could be in line to face off against his former employers this month. Terreur tweeted: "First diagnosis of Romelu Lukaku’s ankle injury: not one that will keep him out for weeks. A scan still has to confirm it, though."

Lukaku has been United's leading goalgetter this season with 29 goals across all competitions and his recovery would unquestionably provide a huge boost ahead of the Cup final.

The Belgian managed to end his lean streak against the top-six by scoring against Chelsea earlier this year and he could now have the opportunity to guide United to their second FA Cup success in three seasons.
