Jose Mourinho has once again left Romelu Lukaku out of his Manchester United team for Saturday's Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

The Belgian was left on the bench for the Red Devils' win over Everton at Old Trafford last weekend but was this time left out of the squad entirely for the game at the Vitality Stadium with Mourinho indicating he picked up an injury in training on Friday.

Fit again Alexis Sanchez starts up front in his place.

Lukaku, a £75m signing from Everton last summer, has only found the net four times this term and has struggled to replicate the success of his debut campaign.

Sanchez returns in place of Marcus Rashford who started the previous game with Anthony Martial, a scorer last time out, keeping his spot after an excellent recent run.

Bournemouth also make one change from the team that won 3-0 at Fulham with Junior Stanislas starting instead of Charlie Daniels.

Teams:

AFC Bournemouth: Begovic, Francis, Steve Cook, Ake, Smith, Lewis Cook, Lerma, Fraser, Brooks, Wilson, Stanislas

Subs: Boruc, Gosling, Surman, Mousset, Ibe, Daniels, Defoe

Machester United: de Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Martial, Sanchez

Subs: Jones, Rashford, Lingard, Ander Herrera, Romero, Darmian, McTominay​
