Jose Mourinho will be a relieved man on Tuesday morning after his star striker Romelu Lukaku was given the all clear by the Belgian medical staff.

Having picked up a problem during United's steamrolling of Crystal Palace on Saturday, the 24-year-old sat out Belgium's training session on Monday to undergo an MRI scan, which ultimately revealed no ligament damage or fractures.

As reported by the Mirror, a statement from the Belgium FA said: "Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed.

"The next days he will follow an individual training program.

"It is however too early to state that he won't be match fit for the Bosnia and/or Cyprus game."

With Belgium having already qualified for the World Cup next year, it is unlikely the United striker will be risked as he gets back to full fitness as Roberto Martinez's men take on Bosnia on Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku has registered 10 goals in nine games for United this season, and will be looking to return to full fitness as soon as possible.

Although the all clear for Lukaku will be music to Mourinho's ears, England and United centre back Phil Jones was forced to withdraw from the England squad after missing training on Monday. 

Having been one of the stand out performers for United this season, it will be come as a huge blow for Mourinho, especially since United have only conceded two goals in the league all season.
