Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has given Jose Mourinho a major boost ahead of Thursday's clash against West Ham by confirming he's "ready" to return.

In his pre-match conference on Thursday, Mourinho also revealed that Michael Carrick will start Sunday's final home game of the season against Watford as a mark of honour.

Even if Lukaku had fully recovered by now it is unlikely Mourinho would have thrown him in for either game over the next few days, but you can only hope that the 24-year-old's absence for three games doesn't disrupt the flow of the team when it comes to the meeting with Chelsea.

United have a chance to end their season on a high this season with a convincing victory over Chelsea when both sides battle for the cup title next weekend.

"The last match of the Premier League, our captain in front of our fans, he will start the match against Watford".

Yet the West Ham hierarchy have made no indications as to whether they want Moyes to stay, while the Scot says he still has a decision to make as well.

"Our performances and play since we came back from our trip is really good, maybe take out the Man City game".

"I can only ever say good things about Manchester United because I respect the club so much and what they stand for, and just how good a football club it is", Moyes told West Ham's official website.

"I think we would rather be not playing them after a defeat, but the truth is we have to play Manchester United and we will do everything we can to win. We are very, very positive".

Alexis Sanchez suffered an injury scare but is expected to be fit for the Hammers' game, while Phil Jones and Sergio Romero are close to returning but will remain absent.
