Manchester United's Ivorian defender Eric Bailly (R) celebrates with Manchester United's Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku scoring the team's first goal during the English Premier League football match between Swansea City and Manchester United at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea, south Wales on August 19, 2017.

"Lukaku wants to play", he said.

News of the injury will send tremors through the Old Trafford fan base as the big Belgian has been one of the standout players of the current campaign.

Now level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, the game is likely to prove to be United's sternest challenge of the season to date.

"Belgium is Roberto's responsibility and it's his decision to play him or not to play him", he added. He came with a little bit of a sore ankle.

"It's a period of season that is really, really busy".

Mr Lewis said that Tesco was "shocked" by the discovery and that the supermarket had audited the factory's food quality commitments.

Marouane Fellaini is also yet to train with his Belgium teammates this week because of the ankle problem he suffered in a challenge with Shane Long during United's 1-0 win over Southampton on September 23, although he is expected to recover before Saturday's game against Bosnia and Herzegovina. "We will give him as long as he can".

With Belgium already qualified for the World Cup, Martinez has pledged not to take any risks with his former Everton striker.

However, Lukaku - who already has 11 goals to his name at club level this season - is a likely participant in the home match against Cyprus on October 10.

The in-form striker, who has netted 11 times in 10 games since joining the Red Devils for £75 million over the summer, is away on global duty with Belgium.

Lukaku won 53 percent of the vote for September, with second and third-placed Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata taking 15 percent each.
