Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku hobbles off injured against Arsenal leaving Jose Mourinho sweating over FA Cup final and Belgian in World Cup
With less than five minutes gone in the second half, the striker was replaced with Marcus Rashford.
Lukaku had gone down clutching his ankle after being clattered into by Arsenal's Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.
It was immediately apparent he wouldn't be able to continue, and while a stretcher wasn't called for, he hobbled off the pitch.
He could now be a big doubt for United's FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19, as well as their final three Premier League games against Brighton, West Ham and Watford.
Lukaku had been well shackled in the opening 45 minutes at Old Trafford, with the man who went on to accidentally injure him, Mavropanos, being one stand out player.
And the sight of Lukaku grimacing as he made his way to the sidelines will be a big worry to his country too.
The 24-year-old is set to spearhead the Belgium attack in Russia this summer for their exciting breed of talent.
And obviously Jose Mourinho would be relying on him to torment his old club Chelsea in the FA Cup final in a matter of weeks.
Lukaku has scored 26 goals in all competitions for United this season, his form so good that Mourinho even allowed the legendary Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave in January.
