Luke Shaw expected to be OUT for another FIVE WEEKS

Luke Shaw expected to be OUT for another FIVE WEEKS, missing vital games against Man City and Copenhagen in the Champions League – but there’s finally some good injuries news as Aaron Wan-Bissaka nears a return

  • Shaw has been out since sustaining a muscle injury in August’s defeat to Spurs
  • Manchester United have been blighted by injuries to key players this season
  • Listen to the latest episode of Mail Sport’s podcast ‘It’s All Kicking Off!’

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is not expecting Luke Shaw to make a return to action before the next international break. 

Left-back Shaw has not played since the 2-0 loss at Tottenham on August 19, United’s second fixture of the season, due to a muscle injury – sitting out nine club games as well as four England matches. 

Ten Hag’s men are set to play seven times between now and England’s next game, against Malta on November 17. 

United have been blighted by injuries in defence, with right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka another who has been sidelined since sustaining an injury against Brighton on September 18. 

Ten Hag said: ‘Of course they are closer. (But) for Luke Shaw, I don’t expect him back in this block of games. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, I don’t think he’s too far away from returning to team training and so back in the team.’

Man United will also be without defensive midfielder Casemiro for this weekend’s trip to Sheffield United after he picked up an injury while on international duty for Brazil

United travel to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United on Saturday night without Casemiro, who emerged from Brazil’s World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela last Friday and Uruguay five days later with an injury. 

‘In the first game he came off but then he played the second game, it was an important one,’ Ten Hag said of the midfielder, who is suspended for next Tuesday’s Champions League clash with FC Copenhagen. 

‘I’m sure that game didn’t help him, but it’s a small injury, he’ll return (from Brazil) next week, it will be healed and then he’s ready for our next (league) game (against Manchester City), I’m sure.’ 

Success in United’s slate of games before Shaw’s expected return will be crucial if they are to achieve their pre-season aspirations. 

Scott McTominay’s dramatic late brace ensured they grabbed a much-needed win before the international break against Brentford, though they still sit 10th in the league ahead of pivotal domestic and continental outings against the likes of City, Copenhagen and Galatasaray.
