Romeulu Lukaku was complaining of a sore foot during the week

Solskjaer said the 25-year-old was complaining of a "sore foot this week so he's being assessed, so hopefully he'll get through (the session) today" - comments soon followed by Martinez seemingly ruling the striker out.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic made a successful return from injury during Man Utd's league defeat at Arsenal last weekend so he should retain his place in the holding role while Paul Pogba is expected to once again start in the middle of the park.

"At the moment, they feel that he can not be involved at the weekend".

"And the FA Cup is a really important trophy and it's a massive match coming up this Saturday at Wolves, but we'll go there and give everything we've got". Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez have both been ruled out for the fixture. "He's kept nine [clean sheets] in the last 11 games, or something like that, in the FA Cup so that's fantastic".

Therefore, Marcus Rashford could lead the line up front but Alexis Sanchez is still a number of weeks away from returning to action after suffering a knee injury against Southampton earlier this month.

Already, the duo of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata will be back in action after the global break, but Sanchez is unlikely to return until April.

"Yeah, I hope so", the caretaker boss said. "So, I'm sure he's doing everything he can (so) that when he comes back he's going to show his best side", he said.

Sanchez was in Barcelona - United's Champions League quarter-final opponents - as his team-mates lost at his former club Arsenal last weekend.

It would also be the first time they have played at the "new" Wembley in a cup competition since it was rebuilt in 2007.

"It's so odd, the Arsenal one. Phil Jones is back so we're looking stronger".
