Ronald Koeman has provided a fitness update on Romelu Lukaku, James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas.

Koeman expects all three to be available for the visit of Sunderland.

Koeman: “They [McCarthy and Mirallas] are progressing well. We knew that they would not play in the friendly this Friday but next week, from Tuesday on, they will be available for all the training sessions.

“Normally they would be fit for the weekend of Sunderland.”

On Lukaku, Koeman said: “We know that for 10 days Rom has had some problems with his calf. He has a lot of confidence in the Belgian doctor and I gave him permission to go to Belgium and recover.

“We expect him, normally, next Tuesday to be joining in the training session. He will be fit and available for the weekend.”
