Chelsea vs Man Utd: Jose Mourinho delivers major Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial update

Lukaku has been struggling with an ankle injury since being hurt in the 2-1 win over Arsenal earlier this month.

Mourinho has been hopeful Lukaku will be fit to face his former club and play in the final.

But in his pre-match press conference, the Manchester United boss admitted he faces a last minute decision on Lukaku while Anthony Martial is fit to play.

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

Romelu Lukaku is a major injury doubt for the final

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

Despite his concerns over Lukaku, Mourinho predicts the final will be entertaining.

He said: ”I think entertaining is emotion until the end and when a result is open until the end, when everybody is on their seats until the end, when both dugouts are nervous and tense with the unpredictability of the result.

“That’s for me as a football lover, not a manager. So I think so it’s going to be entertaining.”
