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."

Luke Shaw is closing in on a return to action with the Manchester United full-back pencilled in to play in the International Champions Cup against Borussia Dortmund in July.

The 20-year-old was originally said to be targeting a place in United’s FA Cup final squad in May but following a minor setback, the then manager Louis van Gaal confirmed, Shaw would not be ready and instead would use the time to get ready for pre-season. Shaw posted a social media update this week confirming he was on track to re-join the main group when they return in early July: "Training done for the day. Building up to pre-season now." The left-back will be assessed before a decision is made on whether he will travel to Shanghai for United's first game of the summer and his first since suffering a double leg fracture in September 2015.

Louis van Gaal has officially confirmed what most of us expected – Luke Shaw will not feature in this weekends' showpiece event at Wembley.

Speaking ahead of the FA Cup final clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday, the Dutchman revealed: "I have always said that he can play in the final to keep his motivation high, but now I cannot say that anymore because we are in the final. It is a pity because he cannot reach that level to play. He needs more time to play but it keeps his motivation very high." Despite making "good progress" in recent weeks, Shaw is still training with the under-21s and has not been given the green light to resume full contact sessions. The 20-year-old, who has been omitted from the England Euro 2016 squad, will now focus on a return in pre-season in the hope that he can travel on United’s two-match tour of China.

Luke Shaw is confident he can return from injury before the end of the season after stepping up his recovery from a double leg fracture in recent weeks.

Speaking to MUTV the 20-year-old revealed: "At the moment, my leg feels really great every time I go outside. There was a bit of aching at the start but now they are all gone." Louis van Gaal had always maintained that Shaw would come into contention if United were able to reach the Europa League final on May 18. However, winning last weekends’ semi-final in the FA Cup keeps Luke Shaw’s hopes of playing again in 2015/16 alive. Following months of gym and pool work, his rehabilitation is "going really well" although the club will err on the side of caution and Shaw won’t be rushed. "I am just going to keep pushing now until the end of the season and see what happens."

Manchester United have confirmed that Luke Shaw underwent surgery in Eindhoven last night following a Hector Moreno "horror tackle" which left the defender with a double leg fracture.

Reports suggest that Shaw suffered a "clean break" which will significantly improve his chances of an early return. United themselves remain optimistic that the player could be back within 6 months although similar injuries suggest his season could be over. Back in February 2010 Aaron Ramsey – then aged 19 – was ruled out for the season following a Ryan Shawcross tackle which broke the midfielders’ tibia and fibula keeping him sidelined for more than 9 months. However as well as recovering physically Ramsey also talked about the mental scarring which he feels held him back for almost 3-years. Shaw now faces a race against time to play in next summers’ European Championships in France.

Luke Shaw, who has been enjoying a far better second season at Manchester United than his first, has been withdrawn from their Champions League match with PSV after 19 minutes after suffering a "crunching tackle".

Manchester United's Twitter feed described the tackle as crunching and Shaw as looking "badly hurt" after the incident which happened early in the action in Eindhoven on Tuesday. We will have to wait for details on his prognosis but it certainly doesn't look or sound good based on the early evidence. Managers who have Shaw may want to make a quick trip to the waiver wire to pick up Marcos Rojo who is Shaw's likely deputy with Daley Blind seemingly entrenched as a starting center back.

Luke Shaw will miss Manchester United's final match of the season as he recovers from a concussion.

Luke Shaw's first season at United has been difficult to say the least. He has started only 15 matches in the Premier League this season and added one substitute appearance to that total. Louis Van Gaal has campaigned for the player to stay home from the U21 European Championships and it looks like he'll get his wish but at a certain point, Shaw is going to need some competitive action if he's going to reach the potential that United has already paid for. Clearly, LVG thinks the best path to game action is for Shaw to get into better shape over the summer and participate in a full training camp with United rather than risking further injury on England youth duty.

Luke Shaw's injury issues continued last weekend as he came off early in the win over Crystal Palace and he has failed to shake off the injury in the intervening week.

Whether Shaw being available is a good thing or a bad thing isn't entirely clear. He's really only had one strong match this season and that was when Chelsea effectively conceded possession and United didn't have to do much of anything in the way of defending. Shaw missing out this week means that Daley Blind will likely deputize at left back with something of a hole in the holding midfield role with both Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney also unavailable.
