Manchester United injury blow: Alexis Sanchez forced to start centre-forward?

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku missed the club’s final training session ahead of Juventus due to injury, according to ESPN.

Lukaku was due to be assessed following United’s game against Bournemouth on Saturday.

However, the 25-year-old was not deemed fit enough to train this morning.

United travel to Turin on Tuesday afternoon for their crucial Champions League clash.

His absence is expected to force Jose Mourinho into starting Alexis Sanchez at centre-forward.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese coach’s squad will have been boosted by the return of Fellaini, Valencia, Rojo and Bailly.
