Romelu Lukaku was forcedout of Manchester United's Premier League meeting with Southampton after just eight minutes on Saturday after sustaining a head injury only eight minutes. Just moments after he headed over with United's first chance of the match at Old Trafford, the Belgian striker clashed heads with Saints defender Wesley Hoedt.

Lukaku could miss Everton game

Lukaku, who appeared to be in some discomfort, received treatment on the pitch for several minutes before being stretchered off wearing an oxygen mask, with Marcus Rashford coming on in his place. As is the norm with all head injuries, Lukaku will undergo tests and will probably spend the night in hospital as a precaution but he could now be in doubt for a return to former club Everton on New Year's Day
