Manchester United forward, Romelu Lukaku misses training but Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini are available for the Wednesday Champions League clash against Juventus.

The Belgian striker was expected to return to starting lineup against Bournemouth after being dropped to the bench against Everton but picked up an injury Friday afternoon and was replaced by Marcus Rashford who scored the winner.

Mourinho also expected Lukaku to recover and face Juventus but the Belgian was not seen at the training session this morning. This could mean another start for Alexis Sanchez

A much better news is the return of the United captain Valencia and Fellaini. They took part in training at Carrington, ahead of their journey to Turin for Champions League Group H match against Juventus on Wednesday.

Valencia just recovered from a knee injury while Fellaini has missed last three games with an unknown injury on international duty with Belgium in October.
