Romelu Lukaku of the Man Utd fans challenges Jose Mourinho to Juventus

Manchester United fans do not want Romelu Lukaku to play Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Belgian striker has not scored in nine appearances for the Red Devils and missed an injury against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Alexis Sanchez started at Lukaku's Vitality Stadium and equalized Anthony Martial.

Marcus Rashford came into the match in the second half and beat Alexis Sanchez. After missing some important chances, the 21-year-old scored the winner of the game in the 92nd minute.

Following United's victory over the Cherries, our friends polled the Manchester Evening News to ask fans if Lukaku should start in the Juventus clash, go bank or drop.

Romelu Lukaku is fighting for form

Two weeks ago, Jose Mourinho's side lost 1-0 at Old Trafford to the Serie A champions. The Portuguese want his team to score at least one point to qualify for Group H ahead of Valencia and Young Boys.

And 73 percent of 1,354 United fans believe Lukaku will give their team the best chance against Cristiano Ronaldo and co.

Only 11 percent believe that the 25-year-old should go to the start, while 16 percent believe that the striker should drop out of the squad.

The request from the fans of United just repeated the comments of Rio Ferdinand a day before.

Marcus Rashford celebrates his equalizer in the 92nd minute against Bournemouth

The United legend called on Mourinho to launch Rashford more often to get the best out of the English star.

"Marcus Rashford is a great talent to be promoted," he told BT Sport. "Mourinho gave him opportunities, he played for many minutes.

"But I think he's at an age when he'll be sitting there [and] If he does not start, he will be disappointed.

"He is no longer the player who was included in the squad and is happy to leave the bench and get that effect.

"He's in a place where he thinks I should start here," and if he does not, he's a deflator. "
