As Manchester United prepares to take on Bournemouth, down on the south-coast this afternoon, there are doubts as to whether Jesse Lingard will be fit enough to play.

Lingard, who scored for Manchester United in the Community Shield last Sunday, damaged a foot in that fixture.

It was hoped that the damaged foot would heal sufficiently for Lingard to play for Manchester United this afternoon.

Unfortunately, the injury flared up again in midweek and a final decision will be made this morning when the player is put through a fitness test.

Reports suggest that if Lingard is unable to play then Mourinho could well turn to Juan Mata to fill the void.

I guess we`ll all find out when the team-sheet is revealed.
