Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hopes that Romelu Lukaku will be fit for the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is still hopeful that Romelu Lukaku will be fit for the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19.

Lukaku picked up an ankle injury during United's 2-1 win over Arsenal in the Premier League on April 29, and it had initially been feared that the Belgium international could miss the remainder of the season.

The centre-forward recently claimed that his recovery was "going faster than expected", however, and Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference that the club were "trying" to get him fit for the final.

Lukaku has scored 27 times in 50 appearances for the Red Devils following a move from Everton last summer.

United will return to Premier League action against West Ham United on Thursday night, before taking on Watford at Old Trafford in their final league game of the campaign this weekend.
