Shaw was forced off the field just nine minutes into Sundays' 1-1 draw with Swansea City at Old Trafford, with manager José Mourinho commenting afterwards that he was "expecting" a "big injury" for the 21 year old. Shaw underwent a scan on Tuesdy morning which revealed that his manager's prophecy was correct, with serious ligament damage sparking fears that the former Southampton man may not be available for selection again until the start of next season. The news will come as a major blow to Shaw, who has endured a turbulent season at the club since returning from a double-leg break. Mourinho publicly questioned his football acumen and dropped him on a number of occasions, before recently rewarding Shaw with a string of first-team appearances after Shaw followed through on a public promise to prove the Portuguese wrong.

Manchester United manager José Mourinho had admitted that left-back Luke Shaw may have a 'very big injury'

The defender limped off with an apparent ankle issue just nine minutes into United's clash with Swansea on Sunday, sparking fears that he must have suffered a 'big' setback. It just was the English international's ninth start of the season. Shaw was replaced on the day by Antonio Valencia, who has been reportedly suffering from fatigue in recent weeks according to José Mourinho. Given United's current injury crisis, the Portuguese manager suggested darkly that Shaw would be expected to have suffered a bad injury to be forced off in such circumstances. He will be assessed this week to get a prognosis for his recovery.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw says he will continue fighting for his spot at the club despite a turbulent past week.

The 21-year-old left-back was subject of criticism from manager Jose Mourinho on both ends of the club's 1-1 draw with Everton on Tuesday. Before the match, Mourinho questioned Shaw's commitment and desire; after the match, Mourinho questioned his decision-making since coming on in the second half of the draw. But Shaw said it will only push him more in his attempt to save his United career: "I am keeping my head up and I am going to fight to the last. I am not going to give up. I love this club and I will give everything to be here. Obviously with the stuff that has been going on it is hard for me to take because deep down that is not me as a person. Like Jose said, he wants to see me fighting - and I will fight to the last second because I want to be here for the club."

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has questioned defender Luke Shaw's commitment to the club.

Shaw has failed to make a breakthrough at the club since Mourinho took the reigns in the summer, appearing just 15 times all season. Shaw, 21, is behind Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind in the pecking order according to Mourinho. When quizzed about this, Mourinho explained: "I cannot compare the way he trains and commits, the focus, the ambition. He is a long way behind". Mourinho was also asked if he should expect more from an England international. His response was scathing: "Joe Hart is an English international and is playing on loan in Italy". Shaw has been at United since June 2014, but missed nearly a year from September 2015 after breaking his leg in two places.

The future of Manchester United defender Luke Shaw at the club is thought to be intertwined with Man City's hunt for Spurs' Danny Rose

The former Southampton man has fallen out of favour at United this season under new manager Jose Mourinho and has been subject to much speculation of late. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is understood to believe that he has a good chance of luring England international Danny Rose to the Etihad in a deal worth £50 million, with Spurs looking to draft in Luke Shaw to replace him.
Mar 26 - 6:40 PM

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admitted it won't be easy for Luke Shaw to force his way back into the first team.

That's because the manager rates Shaw as the club's fourth-best left-back. The £27 million signing from Southampton has not played in the Premier League since Week 11 and didn't even feature in the club's FA Cup or Europa League squads this week, with Mourinho challenging the 21-year-old to work harder: "Why has Luke Shaw stayed behind in Manchester? Because I am playing with Daley Blind, with Marcos Rojo, with Matteo Darmian and all of them are playing the way I like a full-back to play. Luke has to wait for his chance. He has to work better and better knowing that I give nothing for free."

There are some serious doubts over the future of Luke Shaw after being left out of Thursday's Europa League squad.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made no effort to keep his frustration with the young defender private, criticizing Shaw after he pulled himself from a Week 11 match with Swansea City due to an injury complaint. Since, Shaw has not played a single minute in the Premier League and continues to be overlooked. However, this weekend's FA Cup match against Blackburn could be a promising opportunity: "The only thing I can say is that Luke is working well," Mourinho said. "He doesn't have any problem and he is working well. He is fighting hard. There is no problem with him. He is fighting hard."

Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw looks to be a doubt for the club's Gameweek 14 clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

Shaw started Wednesday night's 4-1 drubbing of West Ham at Old Trafford but was replaced at half time after limping off the pitch. Daly Blind replaced him that night and now looks to be in line to make his first league start in over a month. This minor issue looks like it will sideline him or at least reduce him to limited minutes at Everton. However, Shaw is unlikely to be starting 100% consistently in the near future as Mourinho is trying to reintroduce him to the side slowly in order to avoid aggravating recently sustained problems.

Both Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw were publicly criticised by Jose Mourinho in the lead up and after GW11's Swansea clash before the international break.

However, it appears that the international break has rehabilitated Shaw's image in the manager's mind a lot more than Smallings. Mourinho has said that Shaw trained well among the small group remaining at Carrington over the international break. He did not guarantee that he will play against Arsenal this weekend but did guarantee that he will be needed in the 5 games United play in the next fortnight across 3 competitions. The same cannot be said for his English teammate Smalling. When quizzed about Smalling's potentially broken toe, Mourinho responded angrily and refused to clarify the situation.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's criticism of defensive pair Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling has been greeted with mixed reviews.

Mourinho questioned their dedication to the team in the aftermath of last weekend's victory over Swansea. Shaw had pulled out of the tie that morning with a complaint after taking part in United's loss to Fenerbahce on Thursday. Smalling meanwhile has been sidelined since October 23. He has put doubt over their commitment to the side; "There is a difference between the brave, who want to play at any cost, and the ones for whom a little pain can make a difference." England manager Gareth Southgate has defended both of his players and has omitted both of them the Scotland WCQ and Spain friendly over this international break.

Luke Shaw has recovered from a groin injury to the extent that he is fit to start against Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday.

The young English full-back made a cameo appearance in Monday night's clash with Liverpool and has emerged unscathed. That was his first appearance since the 3-1 humiliation at Watford in September. Shaw has also accepted criticism which was levelled at him by manager Jose Mourinho after that match which was a point of public controversy at the time.

Jose Mourinho has revealed a few players who will not be able (by choice and necessity) to play in the Europa League against Zorya Luhansk this Thursday.

Luke Shaw was deemed unwell by the Man Utd club doctor and sent home from training today, this does not appear to be a serious setback for the young Englishman. Having confirmed that Wayne Rooney would play against Zorya earlier in the week, Mourinho has cast doubt on this as he has a back issue, which prevented him training yesterday. Mkhitaryan will not be in action in spite of training in the last few days. Anthony Martial has recovered from the calf injury which meant he didn't even make the squad for last weekend's Leicester victory.

Sam Allardyce expects Luke Shaw to be available for this weekends’ Manchester derby despite the England full-back having "a slight problem" with his leg.

The Football Association announced on Saturday that Shaw had returned to United after the left-back was rested from training at St. George's Park as the medical team continue to manage his workload following his recovery from a double leg fracture. Speaking ahead of the World Cup qualifying match in Slovakia, the new England boss revealed: "It’s a slight problem with the leg. A little ache, muscular. [But] with what he’s been through, we didn’t want to take a chance. It’s the calf where the break was. He’s done exceptionally well given the games he’s played, but he didn’t feel comfortable so the wise thing to do was send him back to United." However, Allardyce went on to add: "I’d be surprised if he wasn’t okay for United’s next game," which will come as a massive boost given his impressive start to the new campaign.

Luke Shaw is expected to be fit for the Manchester derby on September 10th even though he has just withdrawn from the England squad.

Shaw had been with the national team ahead of their opening World Cup qualifier versus Slovakia on September 4th. 21 year old Shaw missed Euro 2016 after his horror double leg break but had hoped to restart his England career on Sunday. Danny Rose is now expected to continue in the left back berth. However, England boss Sam Allardyce has reaffirmed that Shaw was just "not feeling right" and hence was sent back to Manchester purely as a precautionary measure.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw completed his road to recovery from a broken leg by playing in a preseason friendly.

Shaw played 45 minutes for Manchester United in a 2-0 friendly win against Wigan on Saturday after missing the last 10 months due to a broken leg that was fractured in two different places during a Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven last fall. The Red Devils' win was also Jose Mourinho's first match as manager as the Portuguese coach admitted he was surprised by Shaw's recovery: "He sacrificed his holiday He was at the training ground every day putting himself in condition. Of course, you lose a bit of sharpness and confidence but he is trying hard. He was mad to play for more but for me it is better to play 45 safe minutes than more, so let’s go step by step."
