Luke Shaw will return to Carrington on Monday following a sickening clash of heads which left him unconscious.

The United defender fell awkwardly after a collision with Spain right-back Dani Carvajal smashing his head into the Wembley turf. After 5-6 minutes of treatment, Shaw left the field on a stretcher in a neck brace. Fortunately, the Football Association confirmed he was "walking and talking" in the dressing room and did not travel to hospital - he was seen post-match using his mobile phone. On Saturday evening Shaw posted his own update via Twitter: ‘Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I’m a fighter so I will be back soon!’ He will be assessed over the coming days and could still face Watford next weekend. Concussion protocol indicates that Shaw would need to be cleared medically before a return to play. Following rest, he will undertake light exercise before progressing onto sports specific work and then onto non-contact training. He could then rejoin the group.

Bournemouth announced that winger Junior Stanislas has signed a new three-year contract extension through 2021.

The Football League journeyman has put together a solid two seasons with a combined 12 goals and nine assists, but saw last season cut short by a knee injury in April. Stanislas hasn't played this season due to the injury and is expected to return in the coming weeks, but that didn't prevent the Cherries from locking down the 28-year-old for three more seasons. Said Stanislas: "It's a nice feeling to get rewarded for some good work over the last couple of years. As soon as it was there I wanted to get it signed and then get my head down and start focusing on improving over the next few years as well."

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll is poised to return to the training pitch this week after missing the start of the season due to the recurrence of an ankle injury in pre-season.

After missing nearly three months of action last season, Carroll suffered yet another injury hiccup during the club's pre-season tour in July. The frontman was initially expected to be out for four months, but could potentially return to action sooner than scheduled based on the club's official injury report. "Andy Carroll is progressing really nicely and he’s going to start doing some work on the pitches this week, so he’s making really good progress." Elsewhere, defender Winston Reid, who is recovering from ankle surgery, is still without a timeline to return. "Winston Reid is in a knee brace, and he's eight weeks down the line from his surgery and making good progress. He's going to be a little bit longer, but he's also making good progress."

Manuel Lanzini has returned to West Ham United’s Rush Green training ground to continue his rehabilitation following successful knee surgery.

The 25-year-old suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in training with Argentina ahead of the World Cup in Russia and underwent reconstructive surgery in Barcelona in June, ruling him out of action until sometime in 2019. However, after spending three months in Barcelona, Lanzini has now returned to east London to continue the rest of his rehabilitation. The No10 still has another six or seven months before being back in contention, but the Hammers will welcome the news his recovery bid is going according to plan. "We're really pleased for Manu and it's great to have him back," West Ham's head of medical Richard Collinge told the club's website. "Rehab-wise, we have a plan in place and Manu is very disciplined and very motivated and we're moving in the right direction."

Injury problems are beginning to mount for Everton ahead of their game with West Ham United.

Marco Silva faces the prospect of taking on the Hammers without up-to 12 first-team players after Seamus Coleman [foot] and Dominic Calvert-Lewin become the latest additions to the Toffees treatment room. Coleman was injured in the defeat to Wales on Saturday while Calvert-Lewin, who was introduced as a substitute for England under-21s in Latvia, lasted less than 10 minutes before being forced off with an ankle injury. Following his two-goals in the Carabao Cup, Silva handed Calvert-Lewin his first league start of the season and the youngster was once again on the scoresheet to help Everton to a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield. The extent of either problem is yet to be determined. The duo will join the likes of Michael Keane, James McCarthy, Phil Jagielka, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina, Idrissa Gueye, Bernard [muscular], Theo Walcott and Beni Baningime on the side-lines while Richarlison must serve the final game of his ban.

Hugo Lloris is hoping to return this weekend although the Tottenham goalkeeper was reluctant to give any guarantees about his availability for the early kick-off on Saturday.

The Spurs captain missed the 2-1 defeat at Watford after aggravating a thigh problem at Old Trafford six days earlier. But despite Mauricio Pochettino’s early optimism, Lloris wouldn’t be drawn on whether he would be ready to face Liverpool. "Do I have a return date? Not yet," he told French outlet RMC Sport. "We're working hard to come back strong and as quickly as possible. There's perhaps a chance for this weekend, but we'll see depending on how things go this week." If he does miss out, then Michel Vorm will continue to deputise with Paolo Gazzaniga providing back-up on the bench. Elsewhere, Dele Alli, who was withdrawn from the England squad on Monday, should be okay while Moussa Sissoko is working hard to overcome a niggling hamstring problem. Erik Lamela [hamstring] and Heung-Min Son [Asian Games] come back into contention.

Seamus Coleman is set for a spell on the sidelines after a scan revealed the right-back has suffered a stress of his foot.

Speaking after Ireland’s 1-1 draw in Poland, national team boss Martin O’Neill confirmed Coleman had travelled with the squad for the friendly international despite being ruled out through injury. "He could easily have got a flight home, but he stayed with the team. He is a great captain, a really great captain. He is inspirational and obviously we hope he is back in time for the games coming up." Coleman will be fully assessed on his return to Finch Farm, and although there has been no official timeline, the Everton defender is likely to be missing for several weeks. The setback means that 21-year-old Jonjoe Kenny is poised for his first Premier League appearance after impressing the Carabao Cup last month. Another option for Marco Silva would be to slot Mason Holgate in on the right, but with Phil Jagielka [knee] ruled out, that seems an unlikely option.

Luke Shaw will miss Manchester United's clash with Watford this weekend as he takes a compulsory 7 day break to recover from a suspected concussion.

The left-back suffered in the injury on Saturday night in an accidental clash of heads with Spain's Dani Carvajal at Wembley on Saturday night. England manager Gareth Southgate confirmed on Monday that Shaw spent a few days being seen after by the national team medical team before returning to Manchester United's training base at Carrington on Monday."He was obviously knocked out before he hit the floor. Our medical team dealt with that really well I think. He's spent the last day with us for some recovery and he has gone back to his club", said Southgate. "All being well, he has a mandatory seven-day period that he has to serve with the concussion, but he should be back in the fold as soon as that's done," he added. Shaw was clearly knocked out cold by the incident but regained consciousness and managed to tweet a reassurance to fans at the weekend.

Harry Kane will not feature in England's game against Switzerland at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

"I thought this is a good opportunity to do it," England manager Gareth Southgate said. Kane's performances have notably dropped off in the last six months, in spite of the striker mounting a good challenge to Mo Salah for the Golden Boot in the PL and the Spurs frontman also finishing as the top scorer at the World Cup in Russia. Many suspect that having has started 61 matches in all competitions since the start of last season, Kane just needs a rest. Dele Alli has pulled out of the squad with a muscular injury. Southgate is expected to rotate heavily for the clash, with new call-ups from the U-21s Demarai Gray and Ben Chilwell potentially in-line to get their first caps on their club's home turf.

Mark Hughes admits that he has to "disappoint" big names when he selects a matchday squad.

When the Saints marched to Selhurst Park and won 2-0 in GW4, summer arrival Stuart Armstrong and striker Manolo Gabbiadini travelled but didn't make the cut for the 18 man squad. "There were four or five that didn’t make the first team matchday squad and they haven’t done anything wrong. They have trained conscientiously as they always do, and it’s a shame you have to disappoint," said Hughes. He contends that many of the 25 men at his disposal will all have a part to play as the season unfolds, even if they have not been amongst those used thus far. Just 16 players have appeared in the Welsh manager's starting XIs thus far. All that said and done, it will be hard to accommodate so many players, and many may leave the club in January on loan or permanently.

Gareth Southgate expects Dele Alli to be fit for Tottenham this weekend despite his withdrawal from the Three Lions squad.

The Football Association confirmed on Monday morning that Alli had picked up a "minor muscle strain" in the Nations League defeat by Spain meaning he would miss the friendly with Switzerland. He left St George’s Park, and instead of joining his international team-mates, who will play at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, Alli will return to his club for treatment. Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Southgate revealed. "I think he should be fine for his club this weekend." Tottenham take on Liverpool in the early kick-off on Saturday and will be hoping to bounce back following their late loss to London-rivals Watford last time out. If Alli does miss out, then Mauricio Pochettino will be able to call upon the services of Erik Lamela [hamstring] who has returned to full training while Heung-Min Son comes back into contention following his involvement at the Asian Games.
