With Liverpool away just on the horizon, Manchester United finally have received some positive injury news.
According to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, Romelu Lukaku is fit to take on Cyprus in their World Cup Qualifier on Tuesday night, per ESPN.
Lukaku, who has scored 12 goals in 11 Manchester United games thus far, picked up the ankle problem before the Red Devils took on Crystal Palace just over a week ago – and consequently, he was unavailable to play against Bosnia for his country on Saturday.
Thankfully he’s now back fit and ready to play, but it seems to me like Martinez is preparing to play Lukaku against Cyprus – which is deeply concerning.
Belgium have already qualified and this game is nothing more than a dead-rubber, so why on earth would they risk Lukaku? Especially given what happened to Marouane Fellaini earlier on this week.
Manchester United’s summer signing has been absolutely immense, and the fact that, touch wood, he’ll be ready to take on Liverpool away at Anfield is huge. The game is going to be extremely difficult and we need all the firepower we can get. If Lukaku gets a chance I’d be fully confident in him finding the back of the net.
