Manchester United duo ruled out of West Ham clash through injury

Manchester United have three games left this season, with the Premier League coming to its climax against Watford this weekend.

Before that, though, the Red Devils head South to play West Ham United later today.

Jose Mourinho has a selection dilemma or two on his hands, however… The gaffer has confirmed that both Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini will miss the game through injury.

Lukaku picked up an injury against Arsenal a week or so ago now, and did miss out against Brighton on Friday. The Belgium international won’t play again in the Premier League, but Mourinho isn’t giving up hope on the 24-year-old being fit for the FA Cup final.

Fellaini did play in the aforementioned game against Brighton on Friday night, but now he’s missing with a muscular problem. If it’s something semi-serious, he may well have played his last game in a Red Devils kit as he’s yet to commit to a new deal.

The FA Cup final against Chelsea is going to be tough, but every little helps and we need all our key players fit and ready to go. Lukaku has been integral to this team all season. Not just for his goals, but also for his hold-up play and willingness to bring others into the game.

I know Fellaini may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but as a plan b he’s an excellent option – just look at what he did to Arsenal from off the substitutes bench…
