Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained the absence of Romelu Lukaku for today’s clash at Bournemouth.
The Belgian international striker was dropped to the substitutes’ bench for last weekend’s 2-1 win over former club Everton at Old Trafford.
But Lukaku is not even in United’s squad for the encounter at Dean Court.
“In training yesterday, after the press conference, he felt something that needs to be studied in the next couple of days,” said Jose Mourinho.
“So Lukaku has not come and we decided to start with Alexis.”
