Luke Shaw was rested over the weekend due to ongoing tightness in his hamstrings but should be available for Manchester United's trip to Newcastle on Wednesday.
Shaw's first season in Manchester has been riddled with injuries and inconsistent play. He was missing again against Sunderland with tight hamstrings. In the absence of Shaw and Phil Jones, Manchester United started three central defenders - Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Marcos Rojo - with Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young as decidedly attack-minded wingbacks. Whether Shaw comes in for Young or not remains to be seen as Shaw hasn't been especially effective going forward when he has played this season. If United revert to a 4-4-2 then Shaw will almost certainly return to the starting line-up. Mar 3 - 11:25 AM

Date:

Luke Shaw was booked twice in the draw at Upton Park and will therefore be suspended for the Week 25 visit of Burnley.

With Shaw suspended, Louis Van Gaal must decide between Ashley Young, Paddy McNair, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans as a replacement. Earlier in the season, Ashley Young played well in place of Shaw and if you have to guess as to which player will replace him now, Young is probably the best guess. Alternatively, one of the central defenders could slot into a central role with Marcos Rojo, equally adept in the center and on the left, sliding into a wide role. United certainly have options even if none of them seem ideal.

Luke Shaw is a bargain defensive option for Manchester United's trip to QPR.

With Ashley Young facing a spell on the side-lines it presents a chance for Manchester United's Shaw to finally stamp his mark on the Old Trafford left wing-back spot. The price is right if you fancy gambling for the match-up with Queens Park Rangers, with the defender available for around £6million in the Yahoo fantasy game.

Luke Shaw as overcome the ankle injury he picked up on FA Cup duty last weekend and will be available to face Southampton in Week 21 of Premier League action.

Luke Shaw will be healthy which is good for all concerned. Quite whether that means he'll be in the starting line-up for the visit of his former club is another question altogether. Ashley Young is out injured after injuring his hamstring against Stoke City on New Years Day but Marcos Rojo is healthy again and offers an option on the left side of defense if LVG is concerned about Shaw's poor form since coming over to United. Shaw is probably a solid bet to start but he's no sure thing so beware if you're playing in leagues that have early transfer deadlines.

Manchester United's defensive injury crisis continues with news that both outside backs who started - Luke Shaw and Rafael - are likely to be missing significant time with injuries picked up in the match.

Both players are only recently returned from injury and are both set to return to the physio's room with Shaw picking up an ankle injury and Rafael suffering a fractured cheekbone. Given the money that Manchester United spent on Luke Shaw over the summer, presumably they are going to give him every chance to start but he continues to struggle both with injury and form on the rare occasions that he is on the pitch. The ankle injury is likely to set the England international's progress back yet again. Look for Ashley Young to continue deputizing on the left with Marcos Rojo an option as he returns to fitness himself.

It has been a frustrating season so far for Luke Shaw with injuries but he is close to a return and could make the squad for the Week 19 trip to Spurs.

Ashley Young has been playing well in Shaw's absence and it sounds like Shaw isn't QUITE ready but it seems plausible that Shaw will make the bench ahead of a potential New Year's Day return. With Young playing well in his absence and Shaw having yet to show the sort of form that led to a huge transfer fee over the summer, it will be interesting to see how Louis Van Gaal utilizes the two players once both are healthy.

England manager Roy Hodgson gave Manchester United fans hope that full-back Luke Shaw will be available to face Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday by confirming his withdrawal against Scotland on Tuesday was precautionary.

Shaw appeared to be in some discomfort following a heavy first half challenge but following his on-pitch assessment the United defender was able to play-on. Discussions continued through half-time and Shaw was able to play 66 minutes before he was replaced by Kieron Gibbs. Post-match Hodgson did confirm he was replaced – along with Danny Welbeck – to protect the player ahead of this weekend although what will concern supporters is that the "muscular tightness" was affecting the same hamstring which hampered his pre-season training. Luke Shaw will be assessed further at Carrington over the next 24/48 hours.

Reports out of Old Trafford indicate that Luke Shaw is fit and available for selection in Week 4 against Queens Park Rangers.

Louis Van Gaal has been, ahem, hamstrung with his defensive selections thus far this season with transfers not happening until late and Jonny Evans and Luke Shaw both turning up injured in the early going. Good news for LVG as Evans featured in Week 3 and Luke Shaw is reportedly ready to go. Given Ashley Young's performances thus far in the wing back role, it seems likely that Shaw will be thrown into the mix immediately.

New Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has injured his hamstring and has been ruled out for a month.

This is a huge blow for Manchester United as they don't have much depth in the back and are already looking at injuries at right-wing back in Rafael and Antonio Valencia. The injury is also a concern because Shaw has had a history of injuries and is now establishing himself as an injury prone player, something Manchester United don't want to hear after spending highly on him this summer. Shaw missing out practically guarantees Ashley Young a starting spot at wing-back for the first month of Premier League action.

Reports indicate that Southampton should know in short order whether they will land Argentina international Marcos Rojo to replace Luke Shaw at left back.

The exodus from the St. Mary's has been well-documented but the signing of a high profile World Cup left back to replace Luke Shaw, and doing so at a fraction of Shaw's price, would go a long way to mollifying Saints supporters. Grazziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic have the pedigree to replace Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana but not much has been done to replace Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovern and Calum Chambers at the back. A move for Rojo would certainly be a big improvement over Ryan Bertrand in rebuilding the defense and fantasy managers would have to be on alert to a potential bargain in Rojo.

It has been confirmed that Luka Shaw is headed to Manchester United on a fee worth £27m.

This is highest ever fee received by Southampton for a player. Shaw is a great fit at Manchester United, where Louis van Gaal will take over after the World Cup. van Gaal has played a lot of 3-5-2 and 5-3-2 at the World Cup and if he brings that same style to Manchester, Shaw would be a fantastic asset on the left wing. He is an immediate starter regardless of formation and will be a big part in Manchester looking to rebound from a poor season. Feel safe using him in fantasy.

Luke Shaw will reportedly undergo a medical at Manchester United ahead of a possible move to the club.

If the reports are true, it means that United and Southampton have probably agreed on a fee for the England left-back. Shaw was exciting at Southampton last season and impressed enough to make England's World Cup squad this summer. He is one of the big Southampton names that have been showered with rumors for possible moves away from the club. Rickie Lambert already moved to Liverpool and Adam Lallana is reportedly being pursued by a number of Premier League teams. Shaw would be an immediate starter at Manchester and could have huge upside if Louis van Gaal chooses to play a 5-3-2 like he does with the Netherlands.

Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana have informed Southampton that they want to leave the club.

Shaw and Lallana and the subjects of bids from some of the Premier League's top clubs and have informed Southampton that they want to pursue those options. Liverpool have reportedly made a £25m bid for Lallana while Manchester United have offered £27m for Shaw. The young stars have not made official transfer requests but have expressed their feelings to management. Lallana is also unhappy that the club weren't returning his calls last week in regards to the LIverpool bids. Southampton are holding out on big transfers until they appoint a new manager to replace Mauricio Pochettino so we will likely have to wait until after the World Cup to see any kind of deal get done.

Luke Shaw helped Southampton rebound from their recent dip in form by keeping things clean while opponents Everton did quite the opposite in a 2-0 win.

The Saints were looking like a side that were coasting to a disappointing finish after taking just one point in their previous three matches, but the Toffees decided to help them today with two own goals to account for all of the scoring. With Roy Hodgson present, Shaw did his best to show why he deserves a spot in England's squad this summer, keeping Seamus Coleman at bay. Regular fantasy darlings Ricky Lambert and Adam Lallana both put in good shifts as the nucleus of Southampton has them looking like a side that deserves a top half of the table finish. Hopefully for their fans, they will be able to afford to keep most of the talent they have heading into next season.

Luke Shaw made his debut for the England National team as he battles Ashley Cole for a spot on England's World Cup squad.

Shaw came on at halftime to replace Ashley Cole and played extremely well in his first appearances on the senior international level. He had a number of impressive runs down the left side and played well defensively. Ashley Cole wasn't bad either and Roy Hodgson will have a really tough decision to make. Luke Shaw was only five years old when Ashley Young made his England debut and now could be replacing him for the World Cup.
