Romelu Lukaku provides a positive update on his comeback from an ankle injury, which he is expected to recover from before the FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that his recovery from an ankle injury "is going faster than expected".

The Belgium international sustained the damage during the second half of the Red Devils' 2-1 win over Arsenal on April 29 and was absent for the defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

United boss Jose Mourinho admitted last week that he fears being without his 26-goal striker for the upcoming FA Cup final against Chelsea, but Lukaku has now provided a positive injury update.

"My recovery is going faster than expected, as always," he told HLN.

Lukaku cost United £75m to sign from Everton last summer and has missed two matches through injury all season.
