Are Lukaku and Martial Fit Enough for United’s Upcoming Game with Chelsea?

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says they will leave it late before deciding whether forward Romelu Lukaku is fit to face Chelsea in Saturday’s FA Cup final.

Lukaku picked up an ankle injury during the win over Arsenal at the end of last month but could be back in time to face his old club at Wembley.

Winger Anthony Martial will be available after a knee injury suffered in training.

Mourinho said: “Martial is fit, but Lukaku – we have to wait until the last moment.

“I don’t want to lie to you and say he doesn’t play and then he plays, or vice versa – so we have to wait.”

United improved from sixth to second place in the Premier League table in Mourinho’s second season but were 19 points behind local rivals City and fell at the last-16 stage of the Champions League.

However, Mourinho does not necessarily think the club needs to win on Saturday, in order to make it a successful season.
