Published

Jose Mourinho says he wants to wait for further assessment on Romelu Lukaku before ruling him out of the FA Cup final next month.In the second half of Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday, Lukaku was caught by a tackle from debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.

After treatment on the pitch, Lukaku was forced to come off with Marcus Rashford coming on to replace him.

United face Chelsea on May 19 in the FA Cup final and Lukaku could face a race to be fit for the Wembley clash.

But Mourinho has attempted to remain optimistic that his star striker’s injury is not serious.

“I don’t know if he is going to be out,” said Mourinho.

“Or if he’s not okay. He wants to play all the time. He is never tired and, when he has small things, he doesn’t care. He still wants to go.

“So, for him to say immediately, to change him, it is because he couldn’t play.

“But there are three more weeks until the final, so let’s see. I know it was on his foot but I don’t know more yet.
“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.

“But I don’t know. I never, when I finish a game and a player is injured, immediately go for good or bad news.

“I wait a bit more.”
