Martinez confirms Lukaku fit to face Cyprus

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

GETTYJose Mourinho wants a solution to sort out Paul Pogba's injury problems

The Red Devils are already without injured midfielder Paul Pogba as well as Lukaku's worldwide team-mate Marouane Fellaini, who suffered ligament damage during the win in Bosnia.

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini may miss next week's premier league clash against Liverpool after the midfielder picked up an injury during Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo.

The big Swede's goals have certainly not been missed thus far, with Romelu Lukaku's excellent start to his Manchester United career filling in that gap. We have not lost a league match this season, dropping points only at Stoke with Lukaku leading our charge with seven league goals already.

The 29-year-old was forced off during the first half of Belgium's 4-3 World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

Now he has returned, United's medical staff will ascertain the extent of the damage and how long he will be sidelined.

The former Everton manager told reporters: "Romelu Lukaku is fit".

The often maligned midfielder has become a key figure for Jose Mourinho's side in recent weeks following a hamstring injury to Paul Pogba in early September.

Jose Mourinho's squad has been hit by several injuries in midfield as they gear up to face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

Perhaps as United fans we are going slightly overboard with the prospect of more players suffering injury. I also hope that none of my team-mates has physical problems in the second game with the national teams as it was the case with Marouane Fellaini, to whom I wish a speedy recovery.

The 25-year-old has formed a strong defensive partnership with Eric Bailly this season and Mourinho will be anxious that he makes the weekend trip to Anfield.
