Manchester United have been given a huge injury boost ahead of the FA Cup final with both Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku in the squad to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Both players had been major concerns ahead of the trip to Wembley, but were part of the travelling party that boarded a train to London on Wednesday afternoon.

Lukaku has been sidelined with an ankle injury picked up in the victory over Arsenal at the end of last month, while Martial was a surprise absentee against Watford last time out.

There were no other notable absentees from the group of players that boarded the train from Stockport Station, and the squad – and manager Jose Mourinho especially – looked in good spirits.

Interestingly, Michael Carrick, who will hang up his boots at the end of the season and join Mourinhos backroom staff, was not wearing the players green training tops and was instead in the coaches black attire.
