BREAKING: Manchester United receive major Luke Shaw update after Aston Villa injury



| Last Updated:


Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw came off at half-time against Aston Villa on Sunday evening, with Erik ten Hag describing his substitution as a “precaution”.

Shaw, 28, was replaced by Victor Lindelöf, who had troubles on his return in an unfamiliar position on the left side of defence.

The left-back had only recently returned from injury, and Ten Hag explained that United did not want to take any chances when he brought up a problem.

“Precaution. He had some complaints, and we can’t take any risks with him because he’s had any injuries in the past,” the manager said.

“We’ll have to see how it goes in the next few days. It’s not an advantage to lose him, everyone knows my philosophy to have left-footers at left centre-back and left-back. We have to make compromises, and it is not to our advantage.”

However, recent updates on the defender have proven to be hugely positive, with Shaw in line to play against Luton Town on the weekend.

InsiderUnited, a social media account which has inside sources in relation to injury news at Old Trafford, has explained that Shaw is due to be in for training tomorrow at Carrington.

It was added that he will be fully assessed by the medical team, but the feeling is that he is fine and will play against Luton unless something is discovered during his assessment.

Shaw played his 250th Premier League game against Villa and has played just 14 games this term amid multiple injury and illness issues.
