Double fitness blow for Man United on Saturday
Manchester United may be sweating over the fitness of two key players in Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof during the international break.
Jose Mourinho has been encouraged by his team’s better results in recent weeks even though they suffered a 3-1 loss to Manchester City in their last outing prior to the international break.
Romelu Lukaku in particular, almost played a vital role in that loss at the Etihad stadium as he came off the bench to earn a penalty kick for the away side.
But based on a report by injury news journalist Ben Dinnery, the 25-year-old is dealing with a new hamstring problem.

In addition to Lukaku, Victor Lindelof is also dealing with uncertainty over his fitness after being substituted during his national team’s game.
The Swedish defender was reported to have suffered a muscular problem but it was later revealed that he was indeed withdrawn from the game due to an illness.http://www.fanchesterunited.com/double-fitness-blow-for-man-united-on-saturday/
