24 Aug Luke Shaw injury adds to Man Utd fitness woes
“Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has sustained an injury which will rule him out of forthcoming games,” United said in a statement.
“The muscle issue is still being assessed but the England left-back is expected to be out of action for a number of weeks.”
Shaw’s injury will present a particular headache for Ten Hag with backup left-back Tyrell Malacia still ruled out with an injury sustained last season. Meanwhile, fellow left-back Brandon Williams joined EFL Championship side Ipswich Town on a season-long loan on Thursday.
Right-back Diogo Dalot, who has previously played on the left of defence, could be an option to provide cover for Shaw.
