Lukaku sidelined for United's next two fixtures

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku could be sidelined for the forthcoming games against Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers after failing to recover from a foot problem.

The Belgium international picked up the damage during the Champions League triumph at Paris Saint-Germain this month, and he is said to have aggravated the same while facing Arsenal in the Premier League.

According to The Manchester Evening News, Lukaku could miss the upcoming league matches against Watford and Wolves, given he has yet to recover from the injury.

Lukaku, who missed the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to the Wolves, has been one of United's inform players in the past month, and he has netted six times in the past four games alone.

In his absence, United recently suffered a second-straight defeat in all competitions but they will be hoping to return to winning ways against Watford on Saturday.

Marcus Rashford is the likely candidate to lead the line against the Hornets.
