Chelsea vs Manchester United

Jose Mourinho admits Romelu Lukaku may start the FA Cup final against Chelsea on the bench as the Manchester United striker continues his recovery from injury.

United head in to the Watford game knowing they will finish second no matter the outcome so the players are just wanting to end the league campaign on a high note and secure a morale-boosting win ahead of the FA Cup final.

"He is in Belgium having treatment with communications between doctors and our medical department at the moment".

'We are waiting to see if he can play final - if not starting at least to be on the bench'.

The United faithful will be holding their breath regarding the fitness of star forward Romelu Lukaku who is now nursing an ankle injury back in his native.

Now the Belgium star is in a race against time to recover for the Cup final on May 19, with United manager Mourinho conceding Lukaku might only be fit enough to come on as a substitute. He was absent in the squad that faced Brighton and would be sidelined for the club's trip to West Ham and Watford at home.

He has not featured in any game for the Red Devils since, and United have looked worse off as an attacking force as a result.

After the Brighton tussle, in which both Rashford and Anthony Martial started, Mourinho was critical of his forwards and referenced United's No. 9. "Why always Lukaku? Why always this player?'", the United boss said, per BBC Sport. "You know why now".

United take on Chelsea at Wembley after the end of the league season in what is their only chance to end the season with some silverware. He bullies defenders with his pace and power.

The striker will be desperate to get back in time for this fixture against his former club.
