Romelu Lukaku posts an injury update before Brighton & Chelsea

Man United & Romelu Lukaku

Last weekend Man United beat Arsenal 2-1 in the Premier League.

That win looks certain to ensure that United end the season as runners-up to Man City.

However the win against the Gunners came at a cost to star striker Romelu Lukaku.

Belgian international striker Lukaku was forced out the Gunners 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.

On Thursday the forward has posted an injury update.

Lukaku is now getting treatment at the Move to Cure clinic in Antwerp, Belgium.

Lukaku missed the Man United end of season awards ceremony earlier in the week due to his injury.

Man United fans will be waiting to hear from Jose Mourinho to understand just how Lukaku is progressing.

Brighton & Chelsea

How much focus will Man United give to Friday night’s match at Brighton?

In the final weeks of the season, Jose Mourinho is still hoping to end the season with a piece of silverware.

Man United have booked their place in the FA Cup final, which will be against Mourinho’s former club Chelsea.

It would be no surprise to see Mourinho rotate his squad for the Brighton match.

To be clear, Lukaku will play no part against the Seagulls.

But will Lukaku be fit for the Chelsea match to close out the season? United fans remain hopeful.

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.
