Romelu Lukaku doubtful for Juventus game

Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia, who have both missed the last five games through injury, took part in the session.

Chris Smalling believes Manchester United's Premier League revival is being inspired by the rediscovery of the resilience that was the hallmark of their golden era under Alex Ferguson.

"When he is now much closer to becoming a top player, obviously I would like him to stay". "But if we don't start well and we end it well, that's fine, it's even good fun for the fans".

"I am not confident", he told Sky Sports.

"All I can say is Callum has been unbelievable to work with since he came to this football club", Howe said.


Ronaldo has already hit the ground running with his new team having taken the shock decision to leave Real Madrid, where he had been the greatest goalscorer of all time in the famous white shirt.

"I have to wait until Monday", said the Portuguese after Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford struck in Lukaku's absence at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Manchester United have won their last two away Champions League matches against Juventus, scoring three goals in each win - 3-2 in April 1999 and 3-0 in February 2003. "Do I look sad?"

United's 38-goal tally is also down on their return of 51 in their previous 25 league games, suggesting they are far less of a goal threat with Sanchez in their ranks than without.

"But we are still there, still on the way - the season is long and we know we didn't start the best way but it's not finished".


But his terms are thought to reach around £500,000 a week with various add ons - making him the highest paid player at the club and in England. "I can not find the word in English, but let's see what happens".

"Obviously, I thought he would bring quality to the squad".

"Tomorrow is a big match and is big enough not to think about what next", he said, in reference to Sunday's visit to Manchester City.

"But it is fantastic to have this feeling that it doesn't matter the result, we know the game is not over".
