This news comes as a relief with Lukaku being United’s main man up front all season. Ever since his injury against Arsenal, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have both been given opportunities, but only the latter has performed well by scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Watford last weekend.

That same game, Martial was supposed to start but left Old Trafford early due to a muscular injury.
Rashford, however, is still in with a chance of starting on Sunday against Chelsea, but Alexis Sanchez is more than likely going to take up the role out wide on the left.
Whether or not Mourinho tries to squeeze in Rashford remains to be seen.
Come on, Reds! 🇾🇪
