There’s BIG news coming out of the Manchester United camp ahead of today’s FA Cup final clash with Chelsea – Romelu Lukaku is OUT! That’s according to ESPN’s Rob Dawson.
Doesn’t sound like Lukaku has made it. Would think that means Rashford starts with Sanchez and Lingard. Jones over Bailly at centre-back.

Chelsea fans will be well accustomed to what Lukaku is capable of. Though he never found the back of the net during a competitive appearance for the Blues, he scored 33 Premier League goals during his two loan-stints away from Stamford Bridge.
Lukaku subsequently joined Everton on a permanent basis and scored a further 53 goals in England’s top-tier before getting his long-craved move to a top side, Manchester United.
The Belgian bagged 16 Premier League goals during his debut campaign at Old Trafford. He’d have been hoping for more, but it’s not a fair reflection of his quality. He’s being spearheading a highly negative Jose Mourinho-led side.
Lukaku’s absence is a huge boost from Chelsea’s point of view. Let’s hope that Antonio Conte and his squad take full advantage of it.
