Manchester United 2 – Arsenal 1

Is that second place wrapped up?

Man United beat Arsenal last weekend in the Premier League in a result which looks like confirming Jose Mourinho’s men as runners-up behind Man City.

Paul Pogba fired United into the lead after 16 minutes. Henrikh Mkhitaryan leveled for Arsenal against his former employers early in the second half.

Marouane Fellaini came off the bench to head home an injury time winner for Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea & Romelu Lukaku

Man United’s win against Arsenal came at a cost.

Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku was forced out the game early in the second half.

Lukaku was injured in a challenge with Arsenal debutant Konstantinos Mavropanos.

The forward hobbled out the game in obvious discomfort, and that instantly raised alarm bells about Lukaku’s availability in the final weeks of the season.

Man United close out their campaign with an FA Cup final clash against Chelsea.

On Tuesday the Times have posted an update on Lukaku’s health for the Chelsea game. In a boost for Man United, it’s believed the striker’s injury isn’t as bad as feared:

Romelu Lukaku has received positive news about his chances of playing in the FA Cup final against Chelsea, his former club. The striker hobbled off during the 2-1 win over Arsenal with an ankle injury, but initial tests conducted yesterday showed that the problem was not serious.

The 24-year-old will undergo further tests today but he is hopeful of playing at Wembley on May 19.

In his first season at Old Trafford, 24-year-old Lukaku has scored 27 goals in all competitions as well as chipping in with nine assists.
