Huge Blow For Manchester United On Eve Of Champions League Clash With Juventus

Jose Mourinho has a selection headache as Manchester United head for Turin to take on Juventus
Jose Mourinho has a selection headache as Manchester United head for Turin to take on Juventus

Manchester United look set to be without Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku for their Champions League clash against Juventus in Turin on Wednesday.

He didn't train with the squad on Tuesday morning at United's training base at Carrington.

Lukaku missed United's dramatic late win at Bournemouth on Saturday through injury and boss Jose Mourinho is expected to deliver an update on the player at his press conference today.

Even though Lukaku didn't train with his team-mates on Tuesday, it doesn't mean he is definitely missing for the game and could have trained alone.

Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini both trained however as they continue their comebacks after injury. Valencia has missed the last six games while Fellaini has been out for four. 

It means United could start in Turin with Alexis Sanchez up front, as they did at Bournemouth. 

Juventus enjoyed a 1-0 success when the sides met at Old Trafford, a game which the Italian giants dominated throughout. They will start as big favourites on their own ground when much of the focus will be on Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba as he returns to a ground he recently described as home. Transfer speculation continues to link Pogba with a move back to Serie A and he is still held in high regard by the home fans.

United need a win to keep their qualification hopes alive because their recent European form has been decidedly unimpressive. Before their defeat against Juventus, they were disappointing in a goal-less draw with Valencia at Old Trafford.
