Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku faces a race against time to be fit for the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester United on May 19.

The striker limped out of his side’s 2-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Lukaku was replaced by Marcus Rashford after he was hurt by a challenge from Arsenal debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Speaking about Lukaku’s injury after the game, United boss Jose Mourinho said: “I don’t know if he is going to be out. 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.”
