Premier League giants Manchester United are facing anxiety on the extent of the injury that ruled star striker Romelu Lukaku out of their last game.

Lukaku missed the FA Cup quarterfinal clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend with a foot injury.

Without the Belgian international star, Manchester United were dumped out of the FA Cup after a 2-1 defeat at the Molineux.

Romelu Lukaku is presently on international duty with Belgium and it was revealed on Monday night that the former Everton and West Brom striker went for an MRI Scan.

Belgium host Russia in the first of their Euro 2020 qualifiers at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels before travelling to face Cyprus and they could be without Lukaku for those games.

Romelu Lukaku is the leading goalscorer for Belgium (past and present players) with 45 goals in 79 caps for the Red Devils.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has an abundance of riches in attack if Lukaku is not fit for the aforementioned games.

Napoli forward Dries Mertens, Liverpool striker Divock Origi and the Crystal Palace duo of Michy Batshuayi and Christian Benteke are all available as possible replacements for the injured Lukaku.

Romelu Lukaku has been in impressive form for Manchester United this season especially in the last one month.

He has scored six goals in his last four games for Manchester United.
