FA Cup final: Antonio Conte warns of Marcus Rashford threat if Romelu Lukaku loses race to be fit

The Chelsea boss is wary of the young England star, while most people have their eyes set on the Belgian's battle to be ready for Wembley.

Lukaku has been back in Belgium receiving treatment in a bid to be fit, but Conte knows there is more about United than one man.

He revealed: "We are talking about an important player [Lukaku], but they have the possibility to pick many important players.

"I don’t know which is the decision tomorrow but if he doesn’t play there are great players to replace him.

"We don’t change [tactics] as you don’t change your plan for one player, but for the whole team.

"They have a lot of important players, like Rashford."
